Disapproves of CEO

I worked at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Incredibly smart, hard working employees, willing to share their expertise and support in achieving customer goals.

Cons

Focus on cutting expenses (aka people) is destroying morale and the core strength of the company.

Advice to Management

As the current CEO has noted, what makes a company great is employees who are committed to the success of their customers. The focus on cutting people rather than on creating value for customers is seriously undermining what makes IBM great in the minds of its customers, its people.

    "I jumped through hoops to be a new hire only to be laid off after 18 months."

    Pros

    The pay was good, the people I worked with were great, I enjoyed my project.

    Cons

    Lay offs are an annual ritual. While I loved what I did, I didn't like the stress that came during "layoff" season. It was starting to feel like a lottery you didn't want to win.
