Pros

Great people to work with throughout the company.

Cons

Company reacts to quarterly results with downsizing to meet their 2015 roadmap. There seems to be no long term vision which is resulting in more and more downsizing (right sizing in IBM's terms). Follows the theme of doing more with less.

Advice to Management

Think about how your decisions affect the people in the trenches. If you continue to reduce the workforce at the current rate, there will no one left for management to manage.

    Pros

    Large company, with a lot of available movement.

    Cons

    Always day to day on your employment, outsourcing is hitting every job description.

    Advice to Management

    Return to a more focus on the people attitude or die a slow and painful death.
