I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- always nice to have the big blue tag to your name

- they are making great investmentsin several areas towards where the industry is headed
- they have the vision
- stability, what more can you ask for?
- benefits are decent
- work/life balance

Cons

- too much bureaucracy - can get really political
- there are too many people who have been working in the company for so long...and they don't seem to do much
- pay is OK, can be better

    I have been working at IBM part-time

    Pros

    great co workers! the best ever for making lifetime friends beyond work. Your relationships with your co-workers will make some of the smaller issues irrelevant and you will stay longer.

    Cons

    need more in-depth product training, i think the everyday sales person can provide more value to the customer if they have a deeper product knowledge and the ability to demo from at least a canned demo while with the customers.

    Advice to Management

    enable sales reps to make lower level decisions with customers
