Advice to Management

This advice is for project managers, upline to the senior VPs.
When reviewing a project upon completion, do not make observations where the team needs to improve punitive.
If the result of a project review is to move the organization forward, it is imperative that trust and honesty is built into the culture. Unfortunately the unspoken message in East Fishkill is mistakes are detrimental to advancement/career.

    Pros

    Location flexibility.
    Little to no micromanagement.

    Cons

    Benefits decrease, as work load increases, and pay grade stays the same.
    Sink or swim attitude - top management does not give good direction or positive motivation.
    "Figure it out yourself, because I don't know the answer either. " - Direct Manager

    Advice to Management

    The most successful leaders know how to do the jobs themselves, but delegate to improve all aspects of productivity and team work.

    IBM Senior Management no longer values the individual or customers. Avoid at all costs.

    Pros

    *Work from home
    *Management is hands off
    *Can't say much more for the positives, honestly was a stretch to put the above down.

    Cons

    *Management is dishonest
    *No Career Growth
    *Draconian treatment of employees
    *No respect for the individual, or work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Forget about the EPS target (also known as "Roadkill 2015"), and return to investing in our employees and customers. Short term personal gain for the executives should not be the primary concern for IBM... in fact it will be the death of an American Icon if not corrected very quickly.
