IBM career provided the opportunity to work with some of the most talented individuals in the world

Various Sales and Sales Management Roles (Former Employee)

I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

Pros-Access to most talented resources (sales, technical, etc) in the world.
-Integrity of employees paramount.
-Opportunity to work on some of the most complex problems that clients were facing.

Cons-Large, corporate culture sometimes prevented the front-line sales teams the ability to make the right decisions for their clients.
-Became very process and metric driven towards the end of my career.
-Have lost a great deal of intellectual capital over the years due to retirements, promotions out of business, individuals who started their own business.

Advice to Senior Management-Eliminate the metric-driven pipeline reviews and get back to face to face relationships with your clients.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
