    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for interesting work.

    Cons

    Unnecessary approvals and cumbersome processes are frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Push accountability to the managers on the front line and get rid of the ridiculous 5-10 levels of approval in the "delegation letter"...crazy. None of these people are actually accountable and they add little value to the risk review so what is the point of having them approve anything. Make APs and LAPs ACCOUNTABLE for delivery and results, get rid of all these approvals.

    Demand for AI Talent Turns Once-Staid Conference Into Draft Day

    Actors in robot costumes stood in the lobby of the Westin hotel in Long Beach, California on Sunday night, "Intel Inside" stickers displayed on their foam torsos. People posed for selfies before heading to an upstairs ballroom, decorated with neon purple lighting and plush white leather furniture, for an event that was more party than technology panel discussion.
