I built sales pipeline for a software company acquired by IBM in 2006.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsIn a sales function, the name IBM certainly opens doors with prospective clients; they're more willing to listen. There is more than enough training in all aspects: function, product, industry. I enjoyed and miss working with smart and dedicated professionals. Direct management that I experienced was fair and reasonable. Lots of fun networking opportunities in major cities.

ConsThings move relatively slow in a large organization and consequently enthusiasm can lose steam. On the other hand, a recent reorganization in sales and marketing swiftly cut thousands of positions. Once hired, if you want to stay with IBM, learn as much as possible, keep your eyes and ears open, and network like crazy to secure your next position.

Advice to Senior ManagementI appreciated the opportunity to work at IBM, and I hope I'm given another opportunity to work there again in the future.

    Pros: None...Used to be a great company to work for but… Cons: Pay raises of 1% or 2% every few years drives newer employees away.
