You need to have God Father, else no matter how much smart, intelligent and productive you are, you will get very less/no appraisal. You need to know how to butter your people manager, that's all.
Pros
Only Brand name
Cons
Politics, Favorism, knowingly putting someone in RED state project and then blaming him or her for the state.

I worked with IBM for 9 years and never felt like not going to work. I looked forward to going to work everyday. I had excellent bosses who were my mentors and guided me for my future development.

Since there is lot of work from home option, people preferred when doing consultant activity. A typical day at work. Lot of night shift, since the customer located across geo.

Its difficult to switch between the groups/departments in IBM. Once you are aligned with a group, its difficult to move to other group like for example moving from GD to Lab etc.
