I have been working at IBM

Pros

I work 60-80 hours per week, and I make excellent money. IBM is a 24/7 global enterprise -- there is ALWAYS more work to be done and always more demands put on you. If you enjoy that atmosphere, you will do well and they will compensate you well for it.

Cons

The corporate culture is extremely competitive, meaning that if you don't work tons of hours you're not going to make it at IBM.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get in touch with what's happening "on the ground". Upper management has absolutely no clue what most of us do on a daily basis -- all they see are metrics and financial reports.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Respected brand, good benefits, decent job security, great people.

    Cons

    Sales quotas are impossible to achieve. There's no clear career path. You have to do your own internal networking to move up. Being a solid performer isn't enough to get ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salespeople need reasonable goals to be motivated, and need to know that they have the opportunity to increase their income.
