Springtime for Ginni and IBM
Armonk is happy and gay
We're moving to a faster pace
Lookout, here comes the cloud based master race
This was from a glassdoor review, and I assure you that Java is important to client work and presentations. If you do not have it, you cannot work and yet those precious PROCEDURES put into place ensure that employees cannot DO THEIR JOBS.
Read this and weep....
Absolutely horrible bureaucracy, especially with respect to IT. For example, I needed to update Java to access a prospects data room. At home, the process took less than 2 minutes. At work, after six weeks of trying, multiple layers of approvals and calls to India, I gave up. Contrary to "Client Promise", Aon will also sometimes put its internal bureaucracy ahead of a client's reasonable wishes."
Calls to India? Guess old CSC is still in the game too.
why do you bother? It is above $12. You are a total moron. You were a joke once. Now, a fool.
Now be careful here, you are using a classic, great song to comment on IBM. People get mad at that and, worse, the Eagles can sue you for rights!!!!!!!!! LOL.
OMG what an astonishing technical observation you have made. NO S??T SHERLOCK. Wow, I am impressed with the ability to add a useless fact to this discussion. Maybe that is why IBM no longer supports the 360 mainframe.
50,000 so far, Cringely is off a bit but still 12% of workforce, some of it through sales of hardware divisions, IBM is now below 380,000 worldwide workforce. More is coming though. Ginni still has her vision of declining revenues to fullfill. What a sucess story.
That would be a laugh. Aon was considering two bidders in 2004, CSC and CGI. The size difference was huge but the head of CSC at the time was a golf buddy of Pat Ryan at Aon so it was a no brainer where outsourcing and jobs went. If CSC was bought by CGI, that would be a smile on my face.
Verizon has cut three states out of the pie and took a helluva hit with Vodaphone. As a result, staff has been cut and the remaining carbon units are working 12 hour days to make up for the lost talent. Way to go VZ.
Brilliant how IBM, with over 300,000 employees won the fight against Microsoft, right? And look at the dominance of OS/2 WARP over that long forgotten Windows? And look how those PC systems are just flying off the shelf, right? And look at the Texas Data Center? All the revenue from AstraZeneca and Hilton. Wow, brilliant moves IBM.
Define Pig. Your post is nuts. This PIG has been constantly going up and up and management is hell bent on keeping shareholders HAPPY, albeit at the expense of everything else. I remember when it was $19. That was in 2003 and as a WTCenter survivor from Consulting, I DO WISH we had been given the chance to buy the stock, then, at a discounted price. This wonderful option was made to RISK SERVICES ONLY and those poor people in Consulting, well, we were ignored. So the price today, ah that would be a valuable purchase indeed. HEY, THANKS CHICAGO and now LONDON for remembering us.
AstraZeneca - gone. Hilton Hotels - gone. Texas data center - gone. Entire nation of Australia - gone. ServiceMaster - gone. Way to increase revenue eh what?
Yes, you have to be the nut job on the Xerox board claiming to have GREAT NEWS COMING SOON too.
Next up in Ginni's gutting of the IBM carcas should be the sale of IBM systems. Maybe she can sell everthing IBM domestic and that way have zero salary and associated employee benefit costs, THEN INDIA will shine like the low cost diamond they want it to be. Clients won't like that of course, but hell, shareholder value is the only thing that counts, right???
You do not know your history. I said Watsons. You know, the dead ones. Oh, human being type, not massive computer. Thomas J. Watson Sr and Jr. And Jobs, gee, he was a human too. IBM tried to buy Apple once under LG. Died in negotiations. Keep smoking pal, ur going to need it.
