    Pros

    The people who work at IBM are terrific. Bright, savvy, 'whatever it takes'. I have never met a better group of dedicated professionals eager to make their clients happy.

    Cons

    1. Too many Resource Actions (RAs) aka layoffs. The latest round affected too many good people that IBM cannot afford to let go
    2. Some (ie Cringley) have predicted that 78% of IBM US personnel will be gone by 2015 in order to meet the $20 EPS promise that Palmisano made, called Roadmap 2015. Internally we call it Roadkill 2015.
    3. Company manages by cost cutting and with little consideration for the people. Do not expect any raises once you get here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The heavy handed management style that Gerstner brought with him still exists today. Today's manager / director / VP only cares about him or herself, and promoting ones career. Morale is as low as I have ever seen, and the cost cutting moves that Ginny Rommetti has made ensure that it stays low. Micromanagement is rampant.
