    Advice to Management

    Temp needed termination, he created hostile environment, no action taken because fear of lawsuit, he quit for another job after being written up multiple times

  2. You are just a number part of a selling machine. Customer relationships are not valued.

    Pros

    Interesting work done in Research.

    Cons

    All about selling. That is all that matters. Customer relationships and being a solid business partner are not valued. The quality of the work of some of the employees is very low in respect to other organizations. The population of the poor workers is higher at IBM (in my opinion) than other corporations. The company does not care about it's employees. You are just a number.

    Advice to Management

    Should be a customer driven org. rather than a porduct driven organization.
