Pros

Very good reputation. Looks great on the resume.
Good Work Life Balance.
Strong Brand Image. Respectable in the Industry.

Cons

Alot of generational workers who have been at IBM for many years just coasting by...
Salaries are lower than expected and raises are minimal.
Can't really figure out how the company stays profitable.

Advice to Management

The performance review is a joke. Everyone has figured out that it means nothing. Hire more competent people and compensate them accordingly.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Career Development - regular performance reviews, a lot of structure around learning and development.
    - flexible work/life balance
    - Recession Proof

    Cons

    - Very poor earnings potential which is causing serious retention issues
    - too much structural change and inconsistency around sales operations process and sales methodologies
    - no more 100% "golden circle" for overachievers

    Advice to Management

    - at least pay market rate to the high worth employees otherwise retention issue will only get worse
    - bring back the decent benefits to incentivize the sales force

    Pros

    Work from home is a flexible benefit. Traveling is also not an issue, allows for personal schedule setting and flexibility.

    Cons

    Long string of communications to get things completed. With working at home also comes a down side. Seems like you can always take work home with you.

    Advice to Management

    At this time, I have no advice. Maybe a better way to search for the needed information or clearer documentation of processes.
