Pros

Excellent Product lines and engineering skills,

Cons

Focus too much on stockholders and executive bonus based on stock value and profit versus customer's requirements and satisfaction. Not enough people in the field. Too many managers tracking numbers instead of helping their employees.

Advice to Management

Focus less on IBM Stockholders and change current IBM Executive compensation plan to focus more on software development and customer satisfaction instead of IBM Stock value and profit. Hire more people to work directly with customers instead of hiring team leaders or manager to track business numbers instead of helping their employees.

    Pros

    Senior management very good. Got plenty of opportunities.loved the work and work environment.One can develop the technical skills by joining this company. Only downside is that there is too much work involved and we need to put in many hours sometimes having to sacrifice personal life.

    Pros

    Education and Career Diversity is very good. Career Growth can be achieved but only for the very top performers. It is nice to be able to move to other roles and product areas. Very diverse.

    Cons

    Decision by committee on everything. Way too much micro management of Sales. Sales spends 30 - 40% of their time actually selling. 60 - 70% in administrative overhead.

    Advice to Management

    Change Sales to allow sellers to actually sell, not be on forecast calls and doing emergency projects. To many "chiefs"...not enough "indians".
