    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    great brand recognition, cutting edge capabilities within R&D, investments in the internal tools available to sellers really helps save time.

    Cons

    way too much time is wasted dealing with internal issues and reporting sales numbers. Not enough people on the ground working with clients. Turnover, frequent changes to sales coverage, and reorganizations mean that few sales are able to develop strong client relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the reorgs and senior management shuffling. Put more focus and investment in keep current portfolio up to date. More focus on business model for increasing growth of new technology
