I have been working at IBM

Pros

While consulting and services predominate, I like that IBM still builds things and produces products.

Cons

Off shoring of most all supply chain jobs with no hiring in US in recent memory in most supply chain groups. Work load is excessive everywhere and no signs of getting better

Advice to Management

Have to be profitable .... And I'm a shareholder , would would like more consideration to keeping a presence in US.

    Pros

    quality people, benefits, customers, some solutions/products

    Cons

    weak management (too much management), competing teams and goals, competing non-integrated products and offerings

    Advice to Management

    quick shooting the workers and weed out the management. Structure goals that complement each other among teams instead of competing goals that ultimately confuse the customer.

    Pros

    Great people, who soldier on despite lousy pay and lousy expectations for promotions or bonuses. I was content to stay there for that reason only.

    Cons

    Management fixated solely on $20 EPS goal for 2015, which they are trying to achieve but slashing payroll and spending to the bone. I really think the intent is to milk the cow to death and walk away from the carcass.
