Thread regarding IBM layoffs

A nursery of talents

How many people do you know who, after leaving unsatisfied from here, did great things somewhere else? I don’t know anyone who left IBM without his career taking an upward trajectory at another company. This is a bit sad because IBM used to value and respect people who bring value much more. Now it’s the nursery of talents for other companies.

Is it a nursery or a retirement home?

Left 7 months ago; last month got a raving review from my boss in new job. Am much happier now, in a job that is easier with products and teams that actually work.

" This month alone:

Tech Lead - AWS - Senior Cloud Architect (been at IBM for 25+ years, was trying to retire in the next 4 years)
Co worker - Google, Software Engineer L4
Co worker - Deloitte, Cloud Architect"

What were these folks job roles at IBM?

For those of us mainframe-centric, there sort of jumps seem near impossible.

This month alone:

  1. Tech Lead - AWS - Senior Cloud Architect (been at IBM for 25+ years, was trying to retire in the next 4 years)
  2. Co worker - Google, Software Engineer L4
  3. Co worker - Deloitte, Cloud Architect

I heard tons more the past few months.
Leadership doesn't care since the goal is to stay afloat and keep their jobs until IBM
is eventually put out of its misery

I personally know several dozens of ex-IBMers (both execs at director/VP/BOD levels and Individual contributors) at FAANG and know even more people at other companies.
Companies still value IBMers and the market is hot.
What are you waiting for?

HR?

Everyone I know who left IBM did better elsewhere.
