Bad place to works; treats employees like pawns

Pros

Company has a great history. The opportunities are good if you have a responsive Band 10 or above to employees needs and concerns. Benefits are fair to on par with industry.

Cons

Where do I begin? No one in this company can communicate for beans. Leadership calls employees resources and gives us all serial numbers...most organizations call their people, well, people or talent. This trickles down to everything...poor treatment of employees, ever shrinking benefits, terrible pay and no increases, company expects the world out of its employees but gives us NOTHING in returns. IBM has sold out to EPS and absurd promises to the street

Advice to Management

Go back to what IBM so strong and powerful in the beginning. Respect your TALENT.

  1. Software Group is not a place for a real sales professional.

    Pros

    Viable business model for shareholders - for now.

    Cons

    More time spent on daily updating of updates of updates than on any real selling activity. Not a place to work if you consider selling a profession. Primitive management approach from the top down. Unhealthy work environment. If you are in sales there more than 3 years, a lot of companies and recruiters will not touch you because they know the deal - you are not really "selling".

    Advice to Management

    None. I doubt anyone that would be able to make improvements would really be interested in advice.

    Pros

    high caliber of talent, great training, strong leadership

    Cons

    I've observed a steady erosion of founding values that made IBM great -- most notably respect for the individual (not the same as full employment)

    Advice to Management

    go back to the basics -- dare to be great by standing out from the pack in favor of your employees
