Current Employee - Enterprise Software Sales in Chicago, IL

Pros

Aggressive software acquisition strategy. Ability to work from home. A great place to start ones career and build a foundation of skills.

Cons

Subjective performance reviews. Monthly driven quota objectives versus quarterly. Too few reps make their quota objectives with quota assignment tied back to Wall Street expectations versus reality. Too many layers of top management who add little value. IBM is supposed to be "family friendly" but taking vacation days is not encouraged.

    IBM is an innovative company and the job as an engineer is stimulating, but the employee morale and atmosphere is poor.

    Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Research Triangle Park, NC

    Pros

    IBM is an innovative company and the job as an engineer is stimulating. The work environment is professional and flexible.

    Cons

    The overall morale and atmosphere at IBM is low. Salaries and benefits are well below competitors. The facilities, specifically in RTP, are poor .... most employees work in a tiny cubicle in an industrial style building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should improve employee moral by providing more competitive incentives to work for IBM.
