    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good salary, great brand recognition, innovation is praised and desired. IBM has some of the best benefits I have had as a working adult but their old style retirement package has gone the way of the dodo.

    Cons

    1. With many outsourcing deals, acquired human resources are thinned out to make projects profitable. So if you did not come from IBM but were acquired, you stand a chance of loosing your job.
    2. Too many layers of management.
    3. Too many software tools to interface with

    Advice to Management

    Say goodbye to Lotus and consolidate the various software tools onto a single platform (not notes).

    OR make notes the one stop shop for everything not one of many tools required to be an employee.
