No opinion of CEO

I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Work/Life Balance, Salary, Respect as an Employee

Cons

IBM seems to have a number of clingers, who don't realize that they should retire or find a new job because they're very ineffective.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Engineers & Tech Support Peers were diverse in skills and personalities. The many differing experiences and exposures are well worth adding this company to your resume'.

    Cons

    Organizational leadership seemed to ignore advice/concerns from the "foot soldiers" who were closest to the problems. Being a global organization blocks some ability to provide top notch customer support that you might find in a small to medium sized business.

    Advice to Management

    You must demonstrate that you are taking action upon some of the feedback that is received from your "front line" individuals.


  2. Great experience, many levels of management

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The experience you gain at a company like IBM is incomparable. The sheer size of the company allows your career to grow in a number of directions. Mentors are easily accessible and resources are at your fingertips.

    Cons

    I mentioned that the size of the company as a pro, but it is also a con. Due to the size, the hierarchy and management matrix is unreal. Every level of management is scrutinizing every last deal and pushing for weekly numbers and goal attainment now.

    Advice to Management

    Let the field reps run their business. Too much time is spend on reporting to management and not enough time selling.
