You can pay A LOT of IBM employee's salaries (which are way below industry standards to begin with) with Rometty's ridiculous $19.8 Million 2015 salary. That fact alone makes me sick, and my face turns BIG BLUE!!! And I wish IBM would break out the employee numbers by country like the good old days, so we can really see what's going on in the US... Indians Badly Managed (IBM).
As an Enterprise Architect and former IBMer, I think IBM will be fine... behind the scenes gathering, crunching, and analyzing most of the worlds data. The titanic sank, but IBM won't... it just takes a long time to turn a ship that size. One day, the IBM bashing will stop and the masses will be chasing the stock price. Buffett (Warren and Jimmy) are not idiots. Who knows, flip flops may be coming to IBM offices one the Gen X, Y, and Millennials are in control.
