Flexible working hours and possibility of working remotely part of the time are definitely good.
Low salary, too much bureaucracy, it is very difficult to suggest changes and alternative ways of working. IBM is so focused on "Agile" right now that they don't see this *does not work* for every single team/project. They just want to find a solution that fits all use cases and go with that.

1-Felability to work remotely and flexible working hours is one of the best attributes in IBM. 2-IBMers and the culture are friendly and easy to blend in, which makes it pleasurable. 3-Continuously transforming, Restlessly reinventing. 4-Treasuring wild ducks and innovators are highly appreciated. 5-100+ year old in the market, it's a pride to work for such a great company. 6- Sales jobs are the best rated in terms of growth, training, and most importantly recognition by top IBM leadership and also wanted in the market. 7- Great talents and Experts in various fields.
1- As in any big company, layering in the management hierarchy. 2- Internal processes are complicated, that can frustrate you. 3- Promotions internally can take a long time, and sometimes might not come if you don't ask for it. 4-Almost 90% of training, educations are online (coming from back office job), unlike Sales where they get dedicated, high-quality face to face training.

The possibility of working permanently on home office and having flexible working hours is a huge plus.
The salary is definitely inadequate to the job role,which makes IBM employees feel underestimated. The lack of lunch vouchers and performance bonuses is also a hugely demotivating minus.

1. Variety education resources to grow your own profession, develop new skills. 2.Most of superiors are very open-minded, they will help you to develop your career 3. Flexible working hours to balance your work and life as long as you can deliver your work
Require more strong managerial energy from leadership team to push business forward. Or people could get frustrated easily.

Regarding the recruitment process, I very much enjoyed the assessment center. Not only I was a successful candidate, but I was also given a valuable feedback from team leaders and managers. In relation to the actual job, I think the biggest advantage, at least for me, was working in an international environment. Other pros include flexible working hours and possibility to attend educational sessions in different areas.
This might be different for every department and it also believes on how much creative freedom you get from your manager/team leader, but I did find the job rather repetitive and did not feel like there was much of a purpose to the work itself. Nevertheless, everyone is different so having a simple, monotonous job may actually be a plus for a lot of people since one does not really have to deal with stressful situations. However, I would be much happier having a job where I know I am either creating a difference or making a contribution to the society in some way.1
