    IBM is going on almost 2 years of flat / falling sales; the reaction is to invest less and push harder

    Pros

    smart people, many of whom do care about relationships and doing the right thing for the client

    Cons

    It's a financially driven organization and we are absolutely feeling the pain of not growing the top line; They compensate by squeezing more costs out (our salaries) to grow the bottom line; many of my peers have had salary roll backs in the last many years as sales objectives are nearly impossible to make......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and smell the social/digital/mobile/ cloud.....it wasn't until 2013 you started to even use this terminology in your communications; face it, your business strategy is a fail, and after 7 straight quarters of falling sales, its time to make some admissions......blaming this last quarter on poor sales execution is insulting.....you've squeezed so much investment and compensation out of the operating model that we've become transactional focused (surprise!);
