It is unlikely that you will always be working on something that you like or that is completely within your wheelhouse, however, in my experience, they tried to find tasks that I was suited for. The rating on work-life balance was more about what I was willing to put in that it was a requirement from IBM, but the work culture can be fast-paced at times and there is the possibility to be moved around occasionally. Overall I have worked for IBM twice, I respect the company since it was a key player in starting many of the technologies the internet depends on. For people who know the history of computing IBM had a role in too many things to count. They also own RedHat, had and Softlayer which were also revolutionary companies each in their own right. The computer industry as a whole has benefitted from IBM's contributions over the years which just can't be dismissed.

I was contracted to IBM from original company. Half of IT were hired full time and other half as contractors. The push is on money not quality. Estimates for projects are generally below what is needed to keep costs down. This results in unpaid overtime to meet estimates. No matter how good you are, well-liked by clients (who even send emails to managers) and co-workers, if budgets are cut contractors are let go first (furloughed). As a contractor you are not given any opportunities to learn newer tech/processes. What you're hired to do is it - nothing more.

I was placed at a client-site by IBM to support the client and every time we had to do overtime, we weren't paid for it because of our salary level (even though other employees in the same salary range at other companies got paid for overtime). We still had to claim the overtime so that the client would pay the overtime to IBM but we (the employees) wouldn't see a dime of it.
Pros
Very technologically advanced, looks good on a resume, good brand, big name, well-recognized around the world
Cons
Work/life balance, very cheap company, shady pratices

IBM India is a huge organisation and to be considered for promotion, one has to be really proactive in terms of not only delivering quality work but also nurturing meaningful associations within the company.
