It is a great place to work for a person fresh out of school, but it is not a place that you build a career.

As a consultant you get the typical long hours and client demands associated with any IT project. STAY AWAY from the CIC unless this is your absolute last pathway for employment. Management could care less about your own personal job growth and will assign you to whatever is most profitable. Pay was way under industry standards and promotions take a long time to come by. That being said if you are looking for a very entry level position and under average pay this can be a place to pick up some skills to be introduced to the workforce. High turnover rate is very common and freshers are always being hired it seems. Understand the difference between IBM core and the delivery center beforehand.
Pros
Flexible work depending on projects, Opportunity to learn the industry
Cons
Long hours, Underwhelming pay, Management was subpar

IBM is a great place to work. I worked as a Worldwide Supply Chain Planner which was a very busy, results-driven job. Daily interface with many in the department, as well as offshore plants in Japan, Hungary & Singapore. Must be comfortable making many Excel charts, management presentations and be on top of the daily requests and inventory of your high-volume product line. You get a real feel for the global process.

ERP implementations/support engagements are stressful (more so since past 2-3 years). Earlier, the management was better however now due to market pressures, this is being felt in deliverance of projects.

A typical day of work was administrating contracts for clients, before and after sale. I learned a huge amount at IBM, when I started I couldn't even write an email in English, and I left leading business meetings with people around the world in German.
Pros
Huge number of opportunities, great training for employees
Cons
Long hours on quarter ends
