MAJOR change over last few years. IBM Used to have long term health of their employees top of mind. Those days are long gone.
If you are in sales, Quarterly targets are long gone. Monthly targets are long gone, replaced by weekly and even daily targets as the end of the quarter gets closer. Insanity for sales people selling solutions and products that have long sell cycles. 90% of the good people have left IBM Canada, only to be replaced by plebes who do whatever they have to to look good to the boss. I personally witnessed numerous reps getting bullied by senior management. Stay away and go to a more progressive IT company. Also, IBM pays the worst commission in IT industry.
Diverse career paths possible
Micromanagement. Commission terrible in comparison to competition.
