Good for lateral hires
The company has vast opportunities to learn and develop. However, the starting pay for freshers is not that great. Good for lateral hires. Work culture is good.

Likes
I liked the work culture at IBM. It felt like a family at work. Teammates were mostly good. Trainings were more than one so some were okay and some were very good. Never had to worry for job security. Career growth I am hoping there is. I stayed in the company for 4.5 years and I was in an already growing and in demand skill, so my experience was not bad but can't tell about others in general. Salary and appraisal is a common issue in IBM. We didn't get much hike nor appraisals. In 4.5 years there was hardly a change of monthly salary, because of which while changing job, faced difficulty to ask for salary according to the market as the base salary was low. Graduate hires normally don't get the opportunity to travel much in their early career in IBM but again depends on the project. Politics, I would say not much. Actually no politics faced at IBM, I think. Work life balance is good at IBM. IBM gives you full flexibility if you do your work properly and within time.


Dislikes

Just the salary/appraisal part was not up to the mark which mostly leads people quitting IBM. And may be IBM can work on its giving gifts/bonus to employees or team outings once a quarter to some good place.

Good Company
I have been working at IBM full-time

Pros


Good and safe work environment


Cons


Poor Annual HIKE or Bonus. Poor PROGRESSION considerations. External Hires with lack of skillset sitting next with highest pay scale, you will definitely demotivated annually twice. Time passers are entertained with highest package.

Good place to start and end
Joined as a graduate hire. Had a month-long training in the assigned field. They assign specialties on no basis other than requirement which was a bit tough. However, as my first job, they will always be special for me.
Growth is not fast and is hierarchial. Great place to settle down after you've reached management level.
Pros
Relaxed work atmosphere, no sign-in, sign-out
Cons
Low salary, Slow growth

Best place to work for if getting paid decently
I was hired as Campus placement from my College and IBM being my first company, I would say I am not disappointed in IBM.
Learnt a lot of things there and found no issues in the management or in the work culture.

The only cons one may worry about are the pay scale and the yearly hikes, that too if you are joining at a later stage with a good package then no need of thinking to switch afterwards.

Loads of learning
I use to work in a very small office situated at Noida sector 135. It was a very outlandish location.
Though, I learned a lot things. It gave a good purview to my career.

IBM is a good place to work if you are looking for a work life balance.
The only thing IBM can work upon is the way it handles the employee portfolios.
