No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great Technology
Incredible Number of Available Internal Resources
Brand recognition

Cons

As a rep you will spend 60% of your time filling out report on your sales activities (Siebel, Control Book, ASFT, Win Plans, Win Rooms, Client Value Path) and 40% actually facing customers.

Their CRM tools are glorified Excel spreadsheets from the dark ages.

Serious micro-management from the top down.

Advice to Management

Get your sellers selling again and invest in some decent CRM tools!

    Pros

    Great people doing the impossible day after day. I continued to be amazed at the talent and intellect of the IBM Team in the United States. They are some of the best and brightest IT workers in the Industry.

    Cons

    Pressure to move work off-shore to maintain competitive rates drives a lot of change which results in reduction of US work force and increased stress for those left behind who often have to do more to make up for the lack of skills and capabilities of those in other countries.

    Advice to Management

    Your people are your greatest asset. Treat them that way.

    Pros

    Working from Home option
    Learn many technologies available in ur team
    Brand value

    Cons

    (1) No Salary hikes at all... You will frustate with salary and leave this organization after long wait...
         With 0% hike rate..probably you will get same salary slip after 5 years...

    (2) No onsite opportunities. May be 1 in 100 get onsite opportunity. Others will wait forever.

    (3) Always asks to work more so that it can earn more money from Customers... But they never
          bothers about you.

    (4) It cries to pay bonus amount. Very least in the market...

    (5) If you join as fresher...gone case...you are dead...You won't get any type of growth...

    (6) Outside laterals joining will get double salary with your same experience in the company.

    Advice to Management

    (1) You are paying worst salaries. Consider employees as Assets not as Liabilities.
    (2) The person who is going onsite only staying there. Don't think others are waste.Implement rotation system in onsite opportunites.
    (3) Company earning billions of dollars.. Try to share good amounts of bonus.. Why are you crying to share something to employees, who brought profits to company.
