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

Pros

like being in any team contest, the colleagues that you work with daily on sales efforts, you come to admire and like being with, as you have a common goal: closing the sale, so you can make money and keep your job.

Cons

some would say the total lack of an effective strategy from senior mgt to handle the onslaught of new sw acquisitions and integrate them into an effective sales plan. However, I would say that the layer of sw sales mgt at a regional level is all about themselves, not about the field, all about how they can use you to make themselves look better.

Advice to Management

Let the new sw acquisitions remain separate, on their own, without encumbrance of bloated IBM sw sales mgt.
