    Pros

    Peers at IBM Research are technically able and treat you with respect. Low-level managers are often very good.

    Cons

    Corporate management too slow in responding to technical change and unable to lead company for organic growth and are choking profits out of the company instead of feeding the right areas for growth. Corporate mgmt and HR office put short term profits and goals ahead of respect for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take your eyes of where the customer IS and look at where the customer is GOING. Stop bleeding the company for short term profits.
