    Pros

    Smarter Planet & I'm an IBMer campaigns creates great identity and direction for employee focus and efforts. The brand remains respectable, garnering a strong response from clients and Wall Street. An overall professional sentiment is maintained with a multitude of talented and self-motivated individuals, many with extensive tenure. There also seems to be a multitude of back-end systems and resources available to manage processes and track performance.

    Cons

    Challenges to meeting the looming 2015 plan communicated to Wall Street... Management constantly rotates through assignments, every 12-24 months, leaving individual contributors to continually re-establish their perceived contribution and reputations. Lack of managerial awareness of employee contributions results in significant lack of developmental opportunities and promotions. The availability of multiple back-end systems and resources available to manage processes and track performance is a two-edged sword. Adoption and training on systems is not universal, resulting in inconsistent reporting not meeting raised expectations in terms of capability to analyze and understand the business.

    Advice to Management

    Consider menial cost of retaining talent and maintaining working teams of professionals, by simply keeping up with inflation, in terms of compensation. Outsourcing could be a viable cost-saving approach, however quality remains questionable.
