No opinion of CEO

I worked at IBM as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Relaxed atmosphere full of people dedicated to their work. IBM only seems to employ people who are very enthusiastic about their jobs and management never needs to really step in and get everyone on the same track, they all instinctively do that themselves.

Cons

The large size is intimidating and often doing your work requires hunting down someone, possibly across the globe, with that one vital piece of information you need to continue your work.

Advice to Management

Not every product needs the word "Smarter" in front of it.

    Pros

    Some great people, work/life balance, work from home,

    Cons

    new CEO and execs focused solely on EPS, more and more jobs moving overseas, employee morale goes down every year

    The sole focus on EPS is causing you to lose very talented people and it is hurting the culture of the company
