    Former Employee - Account Executive in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1) IBM has name recognition
    2) IBM has a long history

    Cons

    Too many cons.
    1) Dog eat dog environment. No team work or comradery. Everyone is out for themselves only
    2) Given accounts that have had little to any software sales in the past 5 years! Quota of $1750K and the history of the sales in these accounts for the past 5 years was under a million dollars!
    3) Mgmt will never, ever support you. Dog eat dog.
    4) the processes they have in place are so mind numbing, frustrating. Laptop problems arise on a weekly basis. Have to send it in to someplace across the country to have it fixed! Frustrating and not productive
    5) First line managers are basically baby sitters. Have zero power and are hired to be micro managers. They are on top of you every second.
    6) No work/life balance. They expect you to work 12+ hours a day. They monitor you on SameTime.

    THE WORST ENVIRONMENT TO WORK IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
