Current Employee - Software Developer in Austin, TX

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

Pros

Worldwide presence. Part of virtually every IT business. Lots of good people.

Cons

Severe budget cuts and layoffs to support a $20 per share earnings goal. Good talent leaving. Too many executives whose main purpose in life is polishing the bottoms of there superiors and defending their turf. Policy of buying technology instead of developing it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need another Gerstner. Sam and Ginny only know how to cut, not build.

    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.
