It is a good place to learn a lot of things and get a good experience on various technologies. Benefits and salary and appraisals are not that much good. Advice to management Being a wellness organization the company needs to focus more on the wellness of it's own employees.

if you're a contractor, don't expect a job offer. I have worked for IBM for several years as a contractor and they keep telling me next year I may get hired as a permanent employee. Tired of getting strung along...looking for a new opportunity.

Good Company but still needs improvement. Needs more manpower for all the project being handled by the Company. Be prepared to spend a lot of working hours but not much compensation specially if your position does not provide overtime pay.

IBM is a superb company to work for. There is a reason IBM Company has thrived since the year 1911 when it was founded. I joined IBM as Senior Oracle Database Administrator in the year 2010.

The biggest mistake managers are changed every six month, which it makes difficult to get a fair evaluation and salary increase are impossible to get.
Cons
Healthcare, Education, Job Security, Bad Evaluation Process

The IBM consulting business model is structured so that IBMers who work as consultants in some positions may work from home which is very nice, no commute.

Given the amount of data and processes that we manage, IBM is a great place to learn new skills and improve on existing skills. Do not, however, expect the normal salary growth you are accustomed to receive from other companies.
Pros
Great colleagues
Cons
So so salary and benefits

As per my experience , It depends on the people you work with here as it is a huge company . I was not happy with project from work life balance point of view. No increment even if you have good ratings.
Pros
Work from home
Cons
Long working hours and lack of respect to technical resources.
