    It is a hierarchical company and there so many talents in the company, one characteristic person can not follow the IBM way,you are too difficlult to influence IBM and you are always influenced by IBM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While all of you are keeping IBM as whole, I wonder if you make each group has its own temperament.
