Pros: Job security, opportunity to advance
Cons: dealing with issues beyond my control
IBM opens a lot of doors when selling systems, however, one could never be complacent. Clients held us to a higher standard than other high tech firms.
This role involved working with many internal teams and levels of internal management. My personal policy was to always deal with other IBM employees with respect and trust. Honesty was always the best policy overall. Understanding my own role and the boundaries to work within was the best way to stay productive and on track. Being part of the big machine that made a significant impact globally was an exciting thing to be a part of.
