    Need to re-establish IBM as a company that employee is the most important assets. Not just earning dollars or utilization

    I worked at IBM

    Pros

    Opportunity to work in one of the most complex organization.
    Salary is competitive compared to Big 4.

    Cons

    Share Stock Options with Employees
    Change Annual Review Process. Its obsolete for virtual organization.
    Too much internal politics and conflict across groups and divisions.
    Siloed organization that works better in smaller groups.
    GBS is a body shop for 60% of its workforce. Top 10% gets more credit. Rest is public.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more realistic in expectations
    Be more collaborative with your workforce.
    White Glove Executives should not be encouraged.
    Rating employees on 1, 2+, 2 is not fair or justified.
