Re: Not just STG
Indeed. The top management needs to be replaced and from outside of IBM.
For years now it's been the same story and the chickens have come home to roost.
From zee specs here:-
"Micro USB for 15.75W charging"
"Click for hi-res" no worky ? Not for me on Chrome anyway.
Must be verging on panic stations in Armonk these days what with the 2014 EPS plan looking like a crock. All those exec bonuses tied to it will no doubt result in some more lunacy over the new few months.
Re: Thats really good news.. but..
Do you guys know which UK divisions are being targetted by this "consultation period" or is it across the board ?
Amen to the above.
I was wondering why HR had sent out an Email this week asking employees to urgently verify that their home address details were correct on IBM's records. Of course that request was dressed up as some kind of benign, touch feely action when it's probably so they know where to send the P45s.
Pirates be steering the ship me hearties....
Greedy execs at the trough...
Same old story, no money for salary increases but enough in the coffers to spunk billions of dollars buying back their own stock to boost the EPS ratio, which the execs bonuses are tied to.
Bitter, moi ?
Meanwhile back at the ranch....
UK employees get told no pay rises again this year.
The jocks got pwn3d by the geek.
As above, RESTRICTED docs do have to be shredded, mustn't be EMailed over an insecure networks, left out on desks overnight etc.
RESTRICTED may be low down on the protective marking food chain but care is still required when dealing with the information. You'd think a DV cleared author would have known that.
Teeth whitening, spa days, little fish nibbling on my feet.....
These seem to be the majority of stunning deals I receive.
$30Bn valuation ? LOLcats
All the financial games but no salary rises.
No doubt Sam + all the execs will slap themselves on their sweaty backs and award themselves huge bonuses for the inflated share price and then refuse to pay salary increases to the "workers".
LOL @ all the posters who just don't get it or assume there's a catch :)
So that's where my salary increases have gone for the last six years.
Must get myself a new job, IBM has long since been a decent place to work.
who gives a shit ?
I'm an IBM employee and could not recommend it to anyone I liked :)
Run away now and find a company that values their employees!
Meanwhile in IBM HQ....
.....IBM'ers offered bounty payments of up to £7K to get their mates to join big blue. Hundreds of positions on offer.
