IBM

Business Development Manager (Former Employee)

ProsIBM is still the leading solutions provider in the world, providing all elements of a total solution either stand-alone or integrated (SW, HW, Consulting, Services..).. I enjoyed and feel privileged to have worked in IBM's global services organizations.. I would recommend IBM's global services organization to anyone..

ConsIBM has become to top heavy,,, too many levels of executives, most time 5-6 layers of VPs between the CEO and field.. this needs to be trimmed to a more controllable model similar to what Gerstner implemented on his arrival (2-4 layers).. IBM also does not seem to practice one of the credo's it had when I joined, "respect for the individual".. they need to be focused on the bottom line, but not with sacrificing respect for its employees.. there are still a few execs in IBM that carry the respect tradition on, and they seem to be quire successful.. may some one needs focus on that again..

Advice to Senior Managementtrim the VP fat, focus on what is needed to improve the employees capability and affordability to perform their jobs mobilly..

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
