IBM is a very dysfunctional organization. I would not encourage you to apply or work there unless you value process over productivity, posturing over transparency, and bureaucracy over technology.
Pros
Flex time means you can work any 24 hours a day you choose
Cons
Everything is an emergency, endless meetings disguised as Agile

It's not clear what IBM's actual business is, and there's no communication about it from headquarters. IBM has been losing money every year for almost 10 years. They are stingy with raises, but keep giving the executives large bonuses for losing money. IBM has moved lots of the technical work to Asia: the skills there are much worse than in the USA, but the people are cheap. IBM has been downplaying its major strengths, and trying to compete in areas where they've been historically poor. Their TV commercials are a joke. I'm not sure what they're advertising. A once great company now operating in the mud because of incompetent management.

Working at Yorktown Heights branch was the best experience of my corporate life. The problem was very challenging and required multiple innovations. The team was very supportive of all drastic changes that were suggested to solve the problem. Almost no negative!

Many years ago, IBM valued its employees for their years of Loyalty. Now, the cost of labor is so important to IBM, that it has laid off ("Resource Action") many experienced US employees with 20+ years of experience. Instead, they are either outsourcing the services to staff in Asian countries for a lower labor cost, or bringing the low-cost labor to the US to replace the more-expensive but knowledgeable employees that they laid off.
Pros
Interesting Job (while you have it)
Cons
High Probability of Being Laid Off if you are there too many years.

In 1974 IBM was a fertile environment for a young college graduate that had a technical bent; there were seemingly endless exposures to component parts whose availability stimulated thought & imagination that were fertile soil for innovative ideas & invention. The chemical projects I worked on daily were equally enjoyable & educational. I cannot recall a hard part of the job.
Pros
Techie heaven environment in the 70's
Cons
Long drive from NYC

high powered academic-style research ranging from fundamental physics of materials to leading IT system design, hardware, and applications. Culture is collegial but intense with a strong focus on individual contribution. The nature of the job is research and innovation so the hardest part and most enjoyable part are creating new understanding and applied innovations.

The company culture was very relaxed. You get to work with new technologies instead of using legacy code. Manager was very nice, and team was very nice to work with.

My first 20 years were wonderful. I loved my work. Got several promotions including a management position. Worked on leading edge projects. The last 6 years saw a big change in management philosophy. Job security became a big issue with several layoffs.

It's a really disaster for IBM time. The management is really bad for employee. The only pro which IBM has is the work life balance. Most of time you can work remotely.
