    Current Employee - Sales in Sydney (Australia)

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Collegial atmosphere
    Looks good on your CV
    Great systems and access to knowledge
    Access to large, strategic projects
    Easy to meet key decision makers
    Opportunities to progress
    "Work / life balance" (work remotely or in office as you choose)
    Genuine commitment to equality and fairness

    Cons

    Old-school sales culture (think "selling is telling""death by powerpoint")
    unmotivated and recalcitrant sales support staff ("I can't do a client meeting on Wednesdays, I'm picking my kids up...")
    Inward looking culture (too many lifetime IBMers with stale ideas)
    Unrealistic growth targets
    Outdated hierarchical and macho management culture
    Constant internal conflict where another part of IBM frequently costs you business
    Process, forms, more forms, approvals, red tape
    Pay below market rates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culture is stale. Get in more leaders from more dynamic parts of the industry, or send leaders outside as part of their development. Deals only get focus when they are forecast to close immediately; take a longer term view of business development and your customers.
