Former Employee - Sales Manager
Former Employee - Sales Manager
Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great benefits
Strong, growing company
Experience - good place to start career, but the burnout rate in sales at IBM is very high.

Cons

If you believe that companies and employees thrive when upper management basically humiliates and drives for results, IBM is for you. If you are driven by positive motivation and trusting/caring management, go somewhere else.

There is hardly any loyalty within IBM and the organization values politics more than loyalty

Advice to Management

Treat human beings with respect
