Pros

Wonderful people, breadth of opportunity to develop your skills and build a resume
Decent benefits
Wonderful 401k match

Cons

Too many managers not really selling but reporting-up
Pay compared to competition is really low for enterprise sales
Lack of focus on client success
Comp plans don't really align well with what you do

Advice to Management

"Road-kill 2015" is not about the client or the employee - too bad. ELAs are purely financial transactions and a book keeping shell game...make them about driving business and IT value for customers. Better develop a true SaaS strategy and solutions as you guys are going to lose enterprise business customers fast!

    Pros

    Great colleagues, interesting work when it's not yanked from you and sent overseas

    Cons

    Company has sunk to the lowest of lows. Employee benefits keep getting chopped. Good people are 'managed out' of the business with trumped up reviews. Blatant age discrimination . Anyone cover fifty walking around with a target on their back. Soaring profits are pocketed by execs, doesn't trickle down to employees, instead they get chopped
    Can't get decent equipment to do your job. Customers are getting a lot of smoke and mirrors. would give the rating 0 star if possible. Wanna know what's going on internally look at the comments section on allianceibm.org.

    Advice to Management

    stand up to the execs

    Pros

    You will work with very smart people

    Cons

    The compensation and incentive programs don't encourage collaboration or staying around. There is little reward for great people managers and no disincentive for poor ones. Decision making is held at the very top of the hierarchy which discourages risk taking or even straight talk.

    Advice to Management

    Change the compensation and incentive programs.
    Push decision making lower down in the organization.
    Drive more transparency. Everyone I work with is afraid to speak the truth.
