    Former Employee - Sales in Toronto, ON (Canada)

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

    Pros

    Excellent people, excellent training for technical task, professional skills and career, decent compensation, decent benefits, flexible work styles in-office or home-mobile, good sense of belonging, good opportunity for an on-going variety in job role for those interested in moving from one job type to another.

    Cons

    Too many internal meetings reduces time in front of customers, complex matrix management structure, lots of chiefs but fewer workers. Process and lots of administration surrounding almost anything. Expense cut-backs have greatly reduced management levers to maintain morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly walk the talk. This company has great values, and incredible breadth in vision and capability, but not everyone lives up to them, or even tries very hard to do so.
