For a weekend smile, YOMD - IF the cloud is capable of manufacturing CHOCOLATE!!! Wow. Even Girl Scout cookies will fail. Nestle? gone. Hersey? gone, both BK. And then if the cloud can produce a good bottle of Jack Daniels? Now we're talking.
YOU ARE NUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It has been over $12 for about the past two weeks. What is your point????
CSC has been down this road before in 2005 and was forced to pay up. This is huge, sys admins put their souls into their work and if their employer does not pay for their time .. well, turn off the servers and go home. I am in favor of a NATIONAL SERVER DOWN DAY to demonstrate how important this job is. But ONLY to those employers who do not give a tinker's damn for their sys admins and/or consultants.
Will guarantee that while signing a contract increases revenue, blowing them up along the way does not do long term chances a good shot. Reputation follows the pen.
Common practice too. IBM had the same issue about the time it was coding what we now fondly remember as OS/2. They discovered that staff had unusued vacation days in the bank and demanded that they be used up or lost forever. So, the staff used them in a very short time frame and development came to a grinding halt. Law of unintended consequences.
Cringely came up with a defense for failed IBM deals, that the firm is never at fault, only that it was following guidelines for a project and THOSE were the problem. Pennsylvania fires IBM for a revamp of it's unemployment system and IBM promptly says that the PA guidelines, NOT IBM, is at fault. IBM only did what it was TOLD to do. Innovate? Hahahahaha. Continue to recommend change for the good of the project? Nope, take the money. Never mind months overdue and overbilled, HEY, GOOD FOR SHAREHOLDER VALUE, RIGHT GINNY??? RIGHT YOMD????
Move on. I was spending time here, a waste, posting and several correctly said MOVE ON. Copying glassdoor posts is a helluva lousy life. Say nothing more and enjoy life.
Forbes blasts IBM again. Why The World's Dumbest Idea Is (Finally) Dying.
"As revenues fall, IBM's higher earnings targets are met through relentless cost cutting, tax reduction gadgets and share buybacks funded by borrowing. While IBM's share price soars, as the top managers and big investors extract cash from it in a weird kind of reverse-Ponzi-scheme, IBM steadily becomes an increasingly unproductive shell, a mere shadow of its once truly-innovative self. As a triumph of financial engineering, IBM 'makes money from money', while its future is being systematically destroyed. How many more of such disasters will we have to witness before the shareholder primacy idea finally dies?"
I am waiting for YOMD to call Forbes stupid and a know-nothing publication.
Hey, Numb nuts You have been predicting Friday for about 2 years now and we have been over $12 for the past week . ERGO you are a nut job of the first order. GO FIND ANOTHER BOARD TO BOTHER.
I think all these pennystockweekly posts and similar have a robo-id software behind them. Thousands of posts show up on every board within seconds of each other, and I have no idea how any financial gain is made.
Your thought hit me too this morning after reading the sale of the chip unit. Ginny has desired to sell the small server business to Lenovo, now the chip unit too. Why not sell the executive staff at Armonk while you are at it. Proven management professionals with a track record of selling business units. Hey, almost any American firm loves that plus outsourcing jobs to India. You go girl?????
Nah, who cares about a lawsuit, it's only those poor souls who apply for medical coverage and have to wait and wait that matter, right?
Wait, AON reached a LIFETIME HIGH, $90.02 FOR THE SHAREHOLDERS. WOW. What a great company for shareholders, yessir. Boy that means enthused shareholders. And what about MAN-U too. Betcha that brings in revenue and increases shareholder value. I think all the shareholders should WORK IN Aon to see how wonderful it is.
Ok, finally happened, now we shall see if our ever present savant, who has been at this for over 3 years or so, is happy and goes either away or up to $13. An amazing fixation on these usually worthless boards.
Have to agree with you, the IBM I knew, through a business partner, in 1991-93 was an entirely different creature, and during the recessions the sales force was ready to jump out of windows. That was the infamous Akers water cooler memo, never saw so much anger and resentment in the IBM district offices. Those days are long gone, and rightly so.
