    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 ManagementAdvice

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