    Current Employee - Software Sales in Detroit, MI

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay is decent if you have a favorable comp plan, though that's out of your control in most years. Benefits are good, not great. Lots of smart, professional people.

    Cons

    There's essentially no career planning except for what you do on your own. Most managers take little or no interest in mentoring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Morale suffers when quotas double or triple from one year to the next. People need a plan to advance. You lose a lot of good people because people have unreasonable quotas and/or don't feel like they have a fair opportunity to advance. You've made quotas unattainable and at the same time cut the upside for the few who do make it. You've also cut benefits and perks like club trips and stock options. All while IBM profitability is the envy of the industry. You could do better if you cared about holding on to good employees.
