Some interesting growth areas e.g AI. However, in general still struggling to find the right direction. Constant restructuring cause top talent loss and talent underutilisation. Too much focus on cost cutting result in short-sighted decisions in many cases.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Constant restructuring

Ok place to work. Can get stagnated. Tech focus. Finance gets second priority. Needs more employee engagement at senior levels. Needs to be more merit based growth.
Pros
Tech learning
Cons
Structure confusing, increments low

IBM is reinventing itself. Spinning off Kyndryl, and reshaping many of the IBM organizations. It has been a great company to work for the past 25+ years.

Supplemental ie. Fixed term employees are treated differently compared to regular employees. No benefits, no hikes, no job security. If manager forgets to approve time sheets, you are not paid on time. There are no vacation days.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Long hours, low pay, no hike

IBM is a good place to work if you knew the technology and is a relaxed place where you find ample work/life balance, with WFH but salary wise not. Good Place to work, Professional people you will get good support, morality and honest among the folk that work here is great, brand value is highest in IBM. Ample resources to learn online at IBM and if you use it wisely you will go places. But Salary wise and promotion, nothing much can be said. Promotion is very tough to get and it might take yrs sometime. Salary bonus variable per yr is not given, only profit sharing is given and promotion you have to wait for long time. Best is to learn for 3 years that IT trade at IBM and jump ship to grow career, position and salary wise.
Pros
Relaxed work, Wfh, supportive team, learning material many, technical growth exponential as there are lot of resources.
Cons
Salary is very less below Market, no bonus or increment, if also in the range of 2-5% and no promotions, the biggest dampener, if you want to grow in career, IBM is the best place to learn as they have lot of online resources and tools to learn, but once you have learned adequately say for 3 yrs, then leave to grow in career both position wise and monetarily.

Pros
Excellent Cafeteria
Cons
Personally I was sometimes out of my depth

As a candidate that walked in the company with no kind of background in Procurement it is a grate position to be in, but also needed proper training to arm me for the future ahead in the company, the culture of the company was a bit to stiff coming from a more friendlier enviroment .The hard part for me was to learn everything that was so confidential (contract and dealing with different commodities)The more enjoyable part was when i had a task from my boss to do, and managed to do with no help, also submitting my work in time.

I was very excited to work at IBM, unitl I started and I wasn't given actual work for about 8.5 months. Usually the initial training (aka doing nothing) is about 3 months, but my own experience was a bit longer than normal due to poor hiring decisions - hiring too many employees for a single new client that ended up terminating the contract.I would go weeks without talking to my direct manager, even though he sat two desks over from myself. Although I do not blame him, he was new to the role when I started and I don't think it was in his job description to be constantly checking on me. He was a very nice guy otherwise.The starting salary and benefits are great for young adults starting their career. IBM is a great place to grow your skills. There is room for advancement but it is a very long term commitement, upwards of a decade for a management role.
Pros
Salary and Benefits
Cons
Poor Intial Training Process
