    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its the workers on the ground that actually generate revenue for IBM. We are primarily a people/brain power business. This is what we sell. They need to be managed far better in terms of end of year ratings, remuneration, bonus and benefits.

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Highly skilled people available to support sales teams at worldwide level; amazing and unique knowledge base (intranet "w3"); whenever the different teams are tuned with the same objective it's difficult to loose a deal. A lot of good career opportunities if you have the right "mentor(s)"

    Cons

    Matrix structure generate stacking and a lot of "bosses"; too much bureaucracy; mediocre 2nd level management with no leadership capabilities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Under a "forecast accuracy improvement" initiative include to rethink the role and profile of the 2nd level management (as a priority)
