Doesn't Recommend
Approves of CEO

Pros

Good compensation and access to global resources and expertise

Advice to Management

Don''t just SAY you value employees--demonstrate it. "Do unto others..." etc.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    they have their challenges but are looking for ways to improve and they have something good with the cloud initiatives

    Cons

    a lot of people jockeying for just a few jobs and it's easy to get complacent. a complete matrix organization

    Advice to Management

    earnings are now the most important thing, so please just say that instead of creating new values for the company.


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

    Pros

    In 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.

    Cons

    Things 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 Management

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