Dreadful experience at IBM
Senior Consultant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 13, 2018
Very sad to see such a great company fall so far. Many of the laudable qualities they preach were true in years past. The technology is largely outmoded. Projects to develop new solutions are under funded. management is clueless about WHY they have so badly missed the mark and disinterested in trying to understand why.
From a cultural perspective, I have never seen a company with such a total lack of leadership qualities throughout the ranks. It is tempting to just blame the CEO, but the fault goes throughout the company and all of the way down. "Managers" are content to punch their clocks, cash their checks and wait out retirement. A true demonstration of the emperors new clothes.
It is sad to see, because so many of the people in the company are terrific. So many incredibly bright people with an overall culture that is collaborative. All wasted as they push out more experienced people for cheaper millennials.
Company management is clueless and on a fast track to disaster
