Current Employee - Technical Sales Specialist in Dallas, TX

Approves of CEO

Pros

It is a tremendously collaborative environment with many people willing and actively helping out everyone else. IBM is not only driving a technology agenda but is making genuine investments into the community and donating technology contributions and talent to global issues.

Cons

You are unlikely to become a millionaire - and job progression is based as much on you own personal network as it is on your ability

Advice to Management

There is a huge overlap in some sales areas with many people being paid for a sale - this should be tightened up !

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Hopewell Junction, NY
    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Hopewell Junction, NY
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Huge company with a lot of opportunities to try different career options; technical persons get a lot of respect; probably one of the few places left to do research; people respect people; managers spend a lot of time to promote employees and really care about your career development

    Cons

    very limited business growth opportunities, frequent resource actions in technology division, and as a result compensation is not great, no stock option at all, very little bonus; managers are paid the same or less than engineers; office buildings are in poor condition; almost unusable fitness center for a site with ~5000 employees; health insurance cost is high compared with other high tech employers

    Advice to Management

    Benchmark salaries for managers separately from engineers so that managers are paid fairly compared to market


  2. "Just started"
