I have been working at IBM


looks great on resume
great brand name
flexible work hours for some people in some roles
your girlfriends parents will be impressed (but she likely won't be)


pay is poor, below market
the red tape is ridiculous
every decision takes 10 reviewers & 20 approvers + Finance & HR to review it all again

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't try to fool staff, try instead to clearly explain what the strategy is in real language, not MBA in Marketing speak. Resist the urge to outsource everything - instead try investing in the people you have here. If there are no jobs at home there will be no demand for what IBM sells.
