Current Employee - Program Manager - Software Sales and Marketing in Somers, NY
Current Employee - Program Manager - Software Sales and Marketing in Somers, NY
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Excellent environment to gain and expose skills in varied parts of the business. No one need feel as though they are placed in a niche work environment- never to entertain other viable options (including world wide assignments) within organizations.

Cons

Lack of focus by management to recognise employee skills levels and assist placing them in appropriate roles within organization. Need to stop the 24x7x365 work day demands.

Advice to Management

There is a place for everyone in IBM - use your vast reach, world wide to place employees and businesses that ensure better employee retention while providing revenue; instead of "excising" employees to demonstrate better operational profits.
