My career at IBM has spanned over two decades including, 3 CEO's, numerous technical advancements, start-ups, acquisitions, divestitures, strategy and management changes galore. For the most part, IBM weathered these "transformations" and proved to the world it was still very relevant by delivering products and services clients needed and wanted. I am grateful for the many opportunities I have had to learn, grow, and excel throughout my tenure. The most recent of these "transformations" however, has been painful. The IBM Company has been slow to adapt or did not know how to execute the vision / strategic long term plan. Instead, business units continued to act in silos or compete with one another rather than work as "One IBM." Finger pointing between management, sales, marketing, product development, and support have created a very unpleasant atmosphere. Recently, employees have been forced into job roles they did not want or were not trained for while others have been completely displaced. Though the recent Wall Street results finally indicate positive momentum, IBM is far from rising out of this tumultuous period,. My patience and willingness to be a part of it have been challenged. I am now seeking my next career chapter. One where I can apply my experience and expertise to benefit both the client and my employer.
