SENIOR PORTFOLIO MANAGER (Current Employee), Westchester NYJanuary 25, 2015
Pros: flexible work schedule
Cons: need to be self disciplined for work life balance
At IBM you work hard and top performance is rewarded. IBM does not pay the highest but offers flexibility in turns of being able to work remotely and flexing your schedule. People are encouraged to continue to challenge themselves and do not stay in the same position for more than two years.

IBM Provides a great foundation for building world class solutions
WW Development Mgr for Recruitment & Growth (Former Employee), Austin, TXJanuary 23, 2015
Pros: good travel
Cons: too much time away from my 18month old daughter
A typical day would include calls starting at 5/6am with Asia or ANZ, followed by a Cadence call to discuss opportunities. I would then start working on the 50+ emails that have dropped since the day before. I would also be planning to contact several partners in conjunction with understand their growth and strategy using IBM products. I would also have several calls with WW IBM teams to discuss any inputs from BP's and any incentives/ programs we are working on to help drive additional revenue. Towards the end of the day, I would be looking to clear the emails as much as I could and to plan for the next days mtgs/calls.
On some occasions, I would be traveling from Monday to Friday meeting partners. If I travelled to Europe/China I would normally be away for 2 weeks to make use of the time on the ground with partners and local teams.

This may have been my favorite job.
Account Systems Engineer (Former Employee), Camp Hill, PAJanuary 22, 2015
Pros: training provided was excellent and the culture of team work rewarded.
Cons: the culture chaned from customer satisfaction driven and was not as rewarding.
I was an account systems engineer responsible for installation of PCs and mid-range IBM computers which included software and hardware. I also supplied training to users, and acted as first level of support for problem resolution. This was the first job I had where I felt I was part of a well-oiled team. The hardest part of this job is that I only had 4 weeks of training from the outgoing engineer. However, I am a fast learner and received many testimonial letters from my customers before I retired.

Non-productive sales culture devoted to internal meetings during most productive selling hours
Big Data/Info. Mgmt, Channel Sales Mgr (Former Employee), Littleton, MAJanuary 21, 2015
Pros: great product set, best brand recognition
Cons: sales job had become 100% forecasting
I need to get back to direct field sales execution or an impactful role. IBM has a fantastic product strategy, filling more of the IT middleware foundation boxes than any competitor. However, execution of the strategy has been hampered by a sales culture of endless cadence calls regarding forecast updates. In my role of managing all of the Business Partner relationships (over 70) doing business in the Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast states I was not leveraging my sales and business development skills across the industries with which I have years of familiarity with line-of-business issues.
I spent many hours each week mentoring far less experienced sales people in the field.
The Channel Sales organization was understaffed and I was not authorized by management to accept other roles within IBM because my job could not be back-filled.
