Worked at different positions in IBM
I worked at different positions at IBM from junior to middle experience level. It was fun working for IBM. I loved it very much. Had it been for the Canada immigration, I would have worked for IBM for far longer than my current duration which is close to 6 years including the 1 year internship opportunity I had at IBM.
Pros
Work-Life Balance
Cons
Salary can be bit less compared to the competition in the market.

Energy is missing
Most management team is not cooperative.
Energy is missing, youths are less.

Exposure to new technology is less.

Pay scale is not satusfying..

Benefits are less.

IBM has good values but manager wont follow it
IBM is a not a place for knowledge seeker.They will assign a project where you cant grow and make you sit in the same project for years.Everything is dependent on the managers.

Not much growth opportunity
Though I got to learn quite a few technologies and got to work on variety of projects, growth opportunity and work appreciation has been less.
How management behaves may depend on client. Colleagues are friendly and helpful. Some of the projects can be stressful. I had a project where I had to consistently work 6 days a week because of being senior resource.

Hardest part is travel considering its Bangalore and its traffic.
