I have been working at IBM

Pros

Great Technology
Incredible Number of Available Internal Resources
Brand recognition

Cons

As a rep you will spend 60% of your time filling out report on your sales activities (Siebel, Control Book, ASFT, Win Plans, Win Rooms, Client Value Path) and 40% actually facing customers.

Their CRM tools are glorified Excel spreadsheets from the dark ages.

Serious micro-management from the top down.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your sellers selling again and invest in some decent CRM tools!
