That's the reason I stay with IBM... I barely work and I am still paid a lot of money.
I will take that as long as I can get it.
What I learned from this thread is that (a) people regret leaving IBM only because they did not have to do much work there and (b) people regret staying because they have so much work dumped on them due to departures and RAs.
I know 2 people who left and came back. But this happened over 6 years ago. Not sure they would come back now. The only reason I know people somewhat miss ibm is now easy the workload is. Let’s you work 10 hours a week.
Big regret that I left few months ago!
I should have left m u c h earlier!
IBM has a way of relentlessly refusing to utilize the true strength of their workforce.
Reducing people to resources.
What could go wrong.
Disgusting virtue signalling evil top leadership.
Ginny The Narcissist destroyed a lot - and got rewarded big time for that - super great company:-D
Are you reading this, Ginny? FU!!! Go to he-l, so to speak.
Lets see how much damage AK will do before he removes himself - I trust the completely useless board of directors won't do it: one might think that "they" (who!?) have something on the board members? Why would normal people otherwise accept a CEO like Ginny? For so long time? Beats me.
Maybe she's mafia.
Yes, I know of only two who left IBM, in the last 8 years, who regretted it. There regret was that now they were working much harder than they had to IBM and wished they were back at IBM. I kid you not.
Left effective 12/31/2020. Have not missed IBM one day. The company became abusive with their ongoing RAs and dumping the work on remaining employees. I certainly do not miss the greedy and arrogant mgt team I worked under.
When I joined IBM, I was proud to be part of a company that stood by it core beliefs. I also had ample time and a support network around me to ensure our clients got the most out of the IBM products, which mostly was in the Mainframe area, where IBM really had a strong heritage, leadership position and a willingness to adapt to client needs.
Sadly it all slowly but surely evaporated, and just before I decided to call it quits, I mostly filled in spreadsheets, participated in endless meetings on new ways how to skin the cat. No I don't miss being in the new IBM.
I also don't know anybody who misses IBM. I don't even know anybody who knows anybody who misses to be on the rudderless ship called IBM.
No because they realize the money is better else where.
It may take them a while but I’ve seen unqualified layed off IBMers eventually land on their feet and make more
Serious answer no .Who?
