    Competitive pay, excellent health benefits, does NOT match 401k contributions until EOY

    We used to have one of the best benefit packages in the industry. IBM has been constantly chipping away in terms of what you get and how much it costs. I can understand that when we're were in a downward spiral in the 90's but we made a $100 billion last year.

    Overall the benefits at IBM are very good. Insurance is good and reasonably priced, the 401K is matched up to 5% and they toss in another 1% for good measure, Vacation is 3 weeks with 12 (7 named and 5 floating).

    For sales, there is no club, but top performers are awarded a weekend trip.

    Travel options are good overall with the ability to stay in Hilton/Hyatt/Marriott class hotels. Meals are paid in a flat per diem that is around $50 per day...not enough to pay for a nice steakhouse but good enough for Macaronni Grill.
