Former Employee - Sales Manager

I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great benefits
Strong, growing company
Experience - good place to start career, but the burnout rate in sales at IBM is very high.

Cons

If you believe that companies and employees thrive when upper management basically humiliates and drives for results, IBM is for you. If you are driven by positive motivation and trusting/caring management, go somewhere else.

There is hardly any loyalty within IBM and the organization values politics more than loyalty

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat human beings with respect

    Pros

    IBM has a lot of employees that are loyal and have stayed with the company a long time. They offer very good benefits and are a long standing company. They are very professional and require high performance and professionalism.

    Cons

    IBM has yearly layoffs and the bonus structure and pay is very low compared to other technology companies. Opportunity for advancements are rare and the company does not have a hire within mentality. Much of the work is outsourced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that your employees are key to your success.
