    I have been working at Bluewolf full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have recently been hired through the IBM graduate program and was selected for a position at Bluewolf as my first rotation. Coming in I didn't know what to expect or much about Salesforce in general. However, during my first couple of months I truly couldn't have asked for much more. The Melbourne team is EXTREMELY welcoming and supportive, and are always willing to lend a hand no matter how busy they are. The approachability of management further adds to a positive, youthful culture. In addition, the learning is comprehensive and well structured, and the workplace is also very flexible and accomodating.
    In general, Salesforce is a white hot area at the moment, and IBM is placing a large focus on expanding and maximising the Bluewolf division.

    Cons

    As a result of being recently acquired by IBM there are still some merging pains with the consolidation of systems and processes. Due to the aggressive hiring, it can be tough to find a seat in the Bluewolf area when everybody is in the office.
    IBM grad salary & bens are satisfactory nothing really missing but nothing outstanding either.

    Advice to Management

    Send a request to IBM for more seating space.
    Provide guidance to the wider IBM regarding departmental culture and support, especially for grads with things such as structured learning.
    Keep up the welcoming culture.

    The corporate culture at Bluewolf is the thing that has really stood out to me. It is a dynamic, collaborative, fun, and high performing workplace environment. No two days are the same and opportunities plentiful. There is an abundance of support and team emphasis.

    I worked at Bluewolf full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Agile, flexible and high level of autonomy

    Cons

    - Bank too much on existing clients, focused on milking them because they can't sign anyone else.
    - IBM integration is bad for culture, losing it's essence and reason as to why it was a good company.
    - Trying to find a way to remain relevant with Salesforce in an ageing and legacy ridden organisation.
    - Management keep employees in the dark - little information and no sight of the bigger picture.
    - Too much fluff - get things done in real time.
    - Hire people that can do tasks quickly.

    Advice to Management

    - Find more clients
    - Listen to your employees
    - Be transparent with employees

    I have been working at Bluewolf full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Bluewolf sets the bar high for Salesforce Consulting agencies. Since joining a year ago, I have been given numerous opportunities to expand my professional skill set. The culture at work is phenomenal, and genuine friendships are formed in all aspects of the business. Management is approachable and supportive, and employees are trusted to work autonomously - productivity and engagement are high. I have never worked for a company as engaging, exciting and challenging as Bluewolf. A huge contender in the Salesforce ecosystem!

    Cons

    Senior management has large numbers of direct reports, and are at times hard to get hold of. Hoping that the integration with iX does not dilute the Bluewolf culture that is a huge contributor to why staff turnover is so low.

    I have been working at Bluewolf full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - extremely good on boarding
    - great culture
    - well documented and well thought out sales and delivery collateral
    - autonomy and trust coupled with challenging targets
    - cool client pool
    - IBM benefits and support without the big corporate issues
    - being part of IBM iX is simply amazing

    Cons

    - sometimes the overlap between IBM and Bluewolf processes can be confusing (this is a teething issue of the acquisition)
    - less of a con, more of a risk: if the Bluewolf culture gets too diluted by big corporate politics in IBM.

    Advice to Management

    keep Bluewolf a seperate world[place culture, along more strongly with iX

    I have been working at Bluewolf full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    With the integration with IBM IX, the benefits package for Bluewolf employees is getting better. The team is growing and that is a great opportunity for a fast career progression. People are autonomous to run their day and responsibilities, no micromanagement. One of the best examples of companies merge during acquisition, Bluewolf is keeping its brand and great culture.

    Cons

    As business is changing and growing, new process and structure will be in place, time to be open to changes.
