There are many opportunities to change career without changing company's

senior management does not care about employees. The direction is to cut costs and move work off shore even as the company makes record profits

Advice to Management

Make use of the experienced workforce in the US to keep the customers satisfied and keep IBM the value leader it once was

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people. Those who have only worked at IBM dont have any reason to complain. I think this is one of the greatest companies on the planet.

    Cons

    Too many people that dont have experience outside of IBM dont need to complain. I have been in many jobs that most cannot handle and IBM is an awesome company.

    Advice to Management

    Provide honest feedback and do it often. Good or bad people like to know where they stand and they dont like surprise evaluations.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    IBM is a great company and Executive Management has a great vision.

    Cons

    The problem is that vision get lost in transmission and you end up with chaos, lots of politics, and old folks in management whose only reason being these is to secure retirement. Employee Advancement is not existing, career advancement does not exist, and support for Eduction is null.

    Advice to Management

    Executive Management needs to ensure that their vision is not lost in transmission. They need to focus on career development, and Education opportunities. Caring for employees need to move from lip service, Intranet PR, to actual processes that can be measured. Internal Employee happiness and problems need to be recognized and addressed
