    Pros

    Good work life balance and work from home

    Cons

    No Salary Hikes, talent not recognised. I was the top rater for consecutive 2 years but still had the same salary after 3 years of my joining with IBM. You will find HR only 2 times in your entire employment time in IBM.Once you join the company and once you leave it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please recognize the talent and ask the HR to be more interactive to the employees

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good domain and technology exposure.
    Work-Life balance is good in most of projects (barring some exceptions).
    Very rich repository of techno / management training material that can avail at your pace.Very open internal social network for collaboration.

    Cons

    No clear visibility on personal growth and promotion.
    IBM has blindly acquired many products and individual brand manager does not know how to handle various IBM brands to resolve client's business problem. This results in fragmented view of IBM in front of client.
    Office Culture is highly depended on team you are working with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IBM has tendency to acquire new products and companies from outside and then blue wash it. IBM should encourage home grown product and tool innovation.
