Excellent school but do not recognize their key human resources anymore as previously.

Senior Sales Software Engineer (Current Employee)

ProsExcellent Product lines and engineering skills,

ConsFocus too much on stockholders and executive bonus based on stock value and profit versus customer's requirements and satisfaction. Not enough people in the field. Too many managers tracking numbers instead of helping their employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus less on IBM Stockholders and change current IBM Executive compensation plan to focus more on software development and customer satisfaction instead of IBM Stock value and profit. Hire more people to work directly with customers instead of hiring team leaders or manager to track business numbers instead of helping their employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
