I have been working at IBM

Pros

-Good Benefits
-Line workers are fantastic (what's left anyways)
-Great experience and IBM name still carries weight
-Great 401k and pension if you still have it

Cons

-US Workforce is becoming extinct. IBM flat out does not want many folks left in the USA
-Off shore staff is not up to speed nor talented enough to take on what's being lifted and shifted to them. Don't get me wrong I am not trying rip those folks just saying with 13 yrs experience I still have mentors with 20 and 30yrs plus. Those in India simply do not have that and want to follow a script and script only.
-Management is poor, direction given is poor and first lines rarely know the business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't give up on the US workforce. Stop hiding behind the economy as a reason for you doing all this"workload rebalancing" as you like to call it. You can't ask for stimulus money and then layoff US workers. Get your ethics in order, something IBM used to pride itself on.
