    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your American employees. You've squeezed them so hard that you've killed morale in Global Services. Remember that the recession is over and good employees will repay your lack of loyalty in-kind. You can't manage cash flow to the quarterlies forever without investing in your people and infrastructure.

    I have been working at IBM (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Diverse and world-wide services and technology set that is unmatched by competition.

    Cons

    Overly driven by the bottom line at the expense of the real business purpose and promise of technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prioritize client satisfaction over stock price. One feeds the other, not vice-versa.
