Great experience, many levels of management

Sales Account Manager (Former Employee) Costa Mesa, CA

ProsThe 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
