It is absurd that she gets a substantial raise at this time. The CEO has to take their share of the bumps and sometimes even work for $1 a year, HEY - STEVE JOBS DID IT. IBM is in trouble and she has multiple misses for revenue, dumps the Roadmap 2015 plan, fires thousands today and drives off from Armonk in her Benz with a nice fat raise. GOOD JOB IF YOU CAN GET IT. She is #$%$, pure and simple and the Board is the same for allowing this. May IBM implode because of this.
Oh you are wonderful. A Private equity BUYOUT? HAHAHAHA. Not happening but the way Ginni is guttig the company of really talented and smart people THIS TIME, the firm may not survive much longer.
I BELIEVE IN LOUSY MANAGEMENT. GO URSULA!!! Keep delivering poor results and WE ARE GOING TO $12 TODAY. I USED TO BELIEVE AND YOU SHOULD TOO. More Lousy results COMING....
GO BIG X!!!!!!!!!!!! .............oh, eh, today is Friday. My Bad.
So if IBM is doing so great, why are they firing people, why has Ginni produced consistent revenue DECLINE and not gains? Why do clients LEAVE IBM? IBM is a non-player in the cloud game, as with the PC long ago, it is too large, too late and too slow to arrive at the dance.
Respect for the employee
Go the extra mile to do a thing right
Spend alot of time keeping the customer happy.
Not a word about shareholder value or earnings per share?
So today it would be....
Respect for the shareholder
Go the extra mile to reduce expenses and keep shareholder value up
Spend alot of time keeping shareholders happy.
The really real problem is that IBM still believes it is the IBM of old, the giant who manipulated the market, managed market share by FUD tactics and could swing mainframes this way and that, rules that no longer apply to anything happening in IT today. Old habits are very hard to break. God help Ginni if she places reliance on "foils" in presentations. (IBMers know what that phrase means).
or they fire you anyway and transfer the job to some drone unit in Bangalore with no bennies and a salary of $20 per day and bill client $250 an hour. Great for shareholder value isn't it. The customer? Oh hell, we are just following his directions says IBM.
ALWAYS the job cuts call those techs DEADWOOD or some such insult. Cut into the bone, and more. That is not DEAD WEIGHT.
This was from glassdoor and while most CSC reviews are almost identical in pros and cons, this one is a gem. First, bad english language
Second, cannot separate a pro from a con.
Here we go, short and simple....
I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp
Pros I am team player and Have good exp for this requirement
Cons I like to work new skills and new environment
Close quote. If this is representative of any tech talent, CSC is in deep trouble.
Go live in India, where the IT jobs REALLY ARE. Shill - listen up, this is an IBM board and financial and business discussions are OK here, not about the Ford Motor Company or political #$%$ or pennystocks. IBM is destroying itself by financial gimmicks, hey those 11 quarters of revenue DOWN help alot. But drink your koolaid.
You grandparents must have booked cabins on the TITANIC too. Then why is everybody else saying that IBM is a mess, that Ginni should go, that 11 straight quarters of revenue loss is a fact of life.???
