    Current Employee - Sales Manager
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    wealth of knowledge and decent products
    Many different jobs to gain experience and build a resume

    Cons

    Only a selected very political few will ever rise to the upper echelons of IBM where you can make decent money. IBM executives are not sole selected based off of skill and talent. How well you play the game will determine you potential as an executive.

    Advice to Management

    cut 2/3 of the Management overhead and make this a place that truly values its employees and pays for performance. When you have the bulk of your Director and VP level titles with no direct line management reports, that should tell you something.

    Don't recruit too many consultants when you know that you are going to layoff them for sure at some point of time.
