I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Global, top tier consulting company with services, hardware, software and finances for all-inclusive offerings. Wide domains and opportunities.

Cons

Size and glass ceiling at band 9. After exceeding the sales figures, its all about "who you know racket" unwritten culture. This is reality in all consulting firms.

Advice to Management

Machine is too big to change. Once in a while, just weigh merit more than favoritism

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    IBM institutes a philosophy for keeping its employees by offering them the opportunity to build career experience with the encouragement to move about the company. Overall this works well although one needs to also cast a wide net which can take quite a long time.

    Cons

    My position pertained to selling the smarter commerce suite of applications which are well accepted in the market place. If you are a seasoned sales person and truly do not like to cold call then you will fail. IBM is NOT a marketing company and depends almost exclusively on each seller to build the field product buzz on their own. You have 12 month to do that and make your numbers before your accounts are thrown back into the hat and you start almost from 0.

    Advice to Management

    Spend the money on local marketing by providing your SBU executives with a budget that can give a shot in the arm to the sellers. This is 2013.....IBM needs to wake up and understand that products just do not sell themselves any more.....even if the have an IBM logo on them
