Not too optimistic about the outlook......

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Raleigh, NC

ProsFriendly coworkers, hard working employees, willing to share their expertise and support.

ConsCutting expenses (people) focus is wrong - is destroying the morale and the core strength of the company. Opportunities to try different jobs is small since usually moving to a different group request is rejected. Leadership - with a few exceptions - is out of touch with realities at working team level.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus should be on people and keeping the talent. Every bad quarter translates into more cuts but no vertical mgmt change at the level that defines the roadmap....

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Technology alone does not create value for customers.

    I worked at IBM full-time


    Pros: Software divisions across big data, analytics, Watson, etc. -- lots of component technology. Inhouse consulting group with domain… Cons: Focus on EPS benefits senior management's compensation, but clouds management's perceptions of what is required to compete against Amazon, Google, and startups.
