Luksic... another useless VP... in Global Markets too which is getting disbanded slowly... He must be already looking for a job elsewhere. There are WAY TOO MANY VPs at IBM...

I spoke with a fairly senior executive whose a mentor of mine. He told me to leave IBM ASAP. And this is a guy that bleeds blue. Time to start brushing up the resume.

IBM is doing what every legacy company is doing. Offshoring all skills that can be offshored. bandwidth is cheap, and a skilled workforce is accessible. Collar jobs can’t compete with 25 cents on the dollar in an offshore environment. It’s a rush to the bottom, for everything that can go off shore. Coding easily goes offshore, development and design again easily offshored. Marketing and sales must primarily remain on shore, but IBM has throttled it to enterprise engagements, with Scaleout being reduced to a skeleton crew. TSS = onshore GBS = onshore but only for where IBM wants to play as they will partner out the marketing, development, sales, etc etc for a piece of the partner finders fee GTS = offshore Cognitive = offshore Systems = offshore except for mainframe

@1tcs+1aMbYkKW bruh you're mistaken!
Ibm execs want to cap developer which is why they have all these new collar initiatives.

Already the teams had only 1 stsm who does some actual work and rest are b6-7s

Now since b6-7s are also leaving in droves, new collars will start at b4 or b5.

Execs don't care about your pay

'Get out now' message is well understood by everyone at IBM, young, old, new and not so new. IBM's decline had been an accepted reality. Every year, new executives come in bec. desperate for a job and blinded by the pitch 'so much room to grow'. Takes less than a year to realize the 'IBM Decline Gravity' and most frame out. IBM barely didn't shrink only because the entire tech industry boomed. When the tech industry growth slows, IBM will likely be the first to feel the blow (think weakest in the herd gets eaten first) and we are VERY to heavy. Inflation is rising quickly already. Stars are lining up for the shxt to hit the fan next year.

People are leaving because they have realized ibm doesn't care about employees who do the actual work. Compensation is bad and product quality is awful.

Ibm doesn't replace people who left

IBM already has a big retention issue… the division I am in, C&CS is tracking ‘regretted attrition’…

The rate of people bailing out of this company on their own is only going up going forward.

Bruh no one actually wants to work here, especially young people bec working here carries no weight in terms of prestige and pay is sh-t.
People are already leaving in droves and ibm will have a huge retention issue going ahead as the job market improves

Given that IBM is expecting mainframe sales to be 300-400 million dollars weaker vs 1st q results, I would expect the RA’s to pick up in 2nd q to make the numbers look better. That means May 26th - May 28th is the witching hour for 2nd q. Again it will be a 30/90 offer
