    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Local management is fantastic, fantastic history of innovation and achievement. Lots of flexibility in terms of work/life balance. Supportive atmosphere allowing skill development and career development.

    Cons

    The company seems to have lost its technical soul in favor of playing financial games with the stock. Combined with moving more and more resources overseas, it paints a very sad picture for the future.

    Advice to Management

    Put someone with technical passion back on the board, start investing in innovation again instead of buying back stock, and start thinking about 5 or 10 years from now instead of just the next quarterly report.


  2. "Lots of options, some good pockets, many bureaucratic ones"
