    Pros

    Great work from home and ability to move around.

    Cons

    Terrible moral, working employees to death to meet their Roadkill 2015 target. The truth is they will meet it by selling off all the properties they aquired when times where good how ever in the process their SW/HW and Services group will crumble due to the lack of people, over worked and under paid. Clients are jumping ship and it can be seen as their revenue remains flat how ever profit is booming. That means SQUEEEEEZE. Enjoy IBM while you can, work it, get experience then jump ship ad go some where that will respect and pay you accordingly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up. Every quarter you act like a fool and push those people is another quarter you will loose those people. Good like trying to get revenue without any sales people. Think strategically on long term sales goals and large play to grow business.. Squeezing every dollar will leave you up the creek without a paddle

    Pros

    Smarter Planet & I'm an IBMer campaigns creates great identity and direction for employee focus and efforts. The brand remains respectable, garnering a strong response from clients and Wall Street. An overall professional sentiment is maintained with a multitude of talented and self-motivated individuals, many with extensive tenure. There also seems to be a multitude of back-end systems and resources available to manage processes and track performance.

    Cons

    Challenges to meeting the looming 2015 plan communicated to Wall Street... Management constantly rotates through assignments, every 12-24 months, leaving individual contributors to continually re-establish their perceived contribution and reputations. Lack of managerial awareness of employee contributions results in significant lack of developmental opportunities and promotions. The availability of multiple back-end systems and resources available to manage processes and track performance is a two-edged sword. Adoption and training on systems is not universal, resulting in inconsistent reporting not meeting raised expectations in terms of capability to analyze and understand the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider menial cost of retaining talent and maintaining working teams of professionals, by simply keeping up with inflation, in terms of compensation. Outsourcing could be a viable cost-saving approach, however quality remains questionable.
