    Started excellent, but declining... is becoming a management shell lacking substance (what it makes vs what it buys)

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Work with professional, very bright individuals.
    Peer support is outstanding - willingness of co-workers to help each other virtually is outstanding.
    Everyone respected - everyone's voice is important - everyone brings something important to the discussion.
    Develop well rounded skills by peers leveraging strengths of each other and helping boost each other's weaknesses.
    In certain groups, with right management creative/out-of-box thinking is encouraged.

    Cons

    Management layers increasing, causing limited communication from ground up.
    Management not leading, inspiring; merely administering.
    Increase in acquisitions creating crowds on the career "ladder".
    "Squeaky wheels" getting way too much attention; thus wrong people are being promoted resulting in those wrong people making poor decisions affecting everyone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead and inspire your people; they can manage themselves just fine.

    No opinion of CEO
