Former Employee - IBM Client Executive (Sales) in San Jose, CA

I worked at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Some very intelligent coworkers...when you can find them
Large resources and thought leadership...if you know how to navigate the org
Good work like balance

Cons

Too many hands in deals...people get paid when the don't contribute
They don't pay enough in Client Executive roles
If you are not a lifer, your chances of coming in and moving up are limited

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start realizing the economy/job environment if more fast paced and fluid. You can't tell high performers it will take 5 years to reach their next career level.

    Pros

    Lots of freedoms, no micro management allowed. Great matching 401k program.
    Lots of talented long time iBM'ers still around. They have a wealth of knowledge.

    Cons

    its all about the share price... Years between salary increases
    Everything that can be moved off shore, will be moved off shore

    Doesn't Recommend

    Disapproves of CEO
