No opinion of CEO

I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

-Good resources and knowledge available if you are willing to search
-Management doesn't know what you do for a living, leaving you alone half of the time
-Process centric, can help you in your next job

Cons

-People don't care about you as a colleague and a profession, or anything for that matter;
-Managers usually are clueless, nowadays it is rare to find someone worth being called a 'manager', majority are just plain do-nothing, conf-calls-all-day-long types
-Bureaucracy is king

Advice to Management

-Errrr start being managers, making decisions and adding some value, or helping those who do
