    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    IBM pays a good base salary. Medical coverage especially for prescriptions is excellent.

    Cons

    No long term structure
    Sales plans are changed every half. What you sell changes, who you sell to changes.
    They have a calculation that they use to determine if you are succeeding in sales or not. What it doesn't take into account is that there is a 12-18 month sales cycle. When your territory and clients change every 6 months... and it takes two months to get the details to you... you are expected to achieve in 4 mo what it takes 18 to do. The only way you luck out is if previous sales reps have gotten something to the finish line and you capitalize on it. Their calculation for what it looks like to "succeed and have the necessary skills" changes as well. So you never know in six months if you'll have a job or not.

    Advice to Management

    Leave things alone. Stop messing with the structure. Let your sales reps actually take care of your clients. Stop treating people like they are indispensable as you get the numbers where you can without calling it a RIF and instead telling the sales teams they just aren't talented.

    I work with some of the best people around. I feel challenged and encouraged on a regular basis.

    Management in my division is transparent and hard working. I'm really happy to be working for you.

    Cons

    Incentives typically conflict with other groups which causes mixed messages to customers. A very process heavy organization. Slow to make strategic change.

    Don't wait til the market tells you to move into a new direction because if it does you will be too late to change. Embrace creative destruction and simplify your goals and align them directly to everyone's incentives.
