too much focus on cost reduction

I worked at IBM

Pros

not much for me. i hear severance was decent but i couldn't hold out that long.

Cons

big companies aren't for me but the company i was with was acquired. i hung around too long as the company focused on cost reduction instead of product development and profit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

good luck with those lay offs.

    I worked at IBM as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The people you got to work with were amazing. They were always helpful and we had fun.

    Cons

    Management didn't care at all. Instead of doing their job one of the Managers would only organize her wedding and nothing else. Have no idea how she even got the position as she was clearly not qualified.
