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.

Big Blue down on all fronts in its third quarter

cashback

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.

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 ?

'NATO RESTRICTED': The lowest possible classification

cashback
Facepalm

Meh

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.

IBM gorges on cheap debt for share buybacks, acquisitions

cashback
Thumb Down

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".
