Comment 6/21/11: Thanks a lot Sam. I Just got your note about the "IBM Special Equity Grant". I'm nearly 60 with 30 years do you actually expect me to be kept (allowed to be) around for when it vests in December 2015? This is the magnanimous $1,000 stock option grant that was much ballyhooed a few months ago. It equates to 7 shares.-HaH-

Don't worry by the time December of 2015 gets here the stock will have gone up so much you will probably only be losing 4 1/2 to 5 shares.

Liquid Portal Strikes Again!

Comment 7/30/11: Folks, Posters here were right.
Liquid Portal is going to allow IBM to get rid of all Java and Lotus Notes programmers inside the company. You failed to unionize, so you're gone!

HIRING! Freelance! IBM Liquid Challenge
Stefanini TechTeam is engaging Software Professionals to participate in the Liquid Player Program with IBM.
In the Liquid Challenge Program, IBM project managers outsource design and programming components to freelancers aka IBM Liquid Players. The design and programming components are part of a larger technical application (solution) that IBM is building. IBM will be the one to select the Liquid Players who will design or program a particular component. Once a Liquid Player has successfully designed and/or programmed the specified component, IBM will notify the player that the submittal was successful and accepted. Payment will be issued by Stefanini TechTeam within 15-20 days of successful completion, and range anywhere from $60-840 USD, minus applicable taxes and program fees, and depending on the component that was completed. The payment for the component will be seen by the Player in the Liquid Portal. A component is payable only when approved and accepted by IBM.

Project description:
100% work from home opportunity.
You choose the programming components you want to develop!
Addresses really small units of work, usually partitioned from a larger unit of work, that can be defined and accomplished within to 7 days
Players are paid on successful programming events, meaning that earning potential is unlimited!
The more successful you are as a Player, the more IBM will request you to work on programming events!

Key Programming Languages Include:
Lotus Notes

Key Platforms Include:
UNIX (Solaris, AIX, Linux)

If interested in joining the IBM Liquid Challenge program, please forward your updated Resume to cristina.zarici@stefanini-usa. com -IBM Java/Notes Programmers are History-

We have reaped what we sowed.

Greed begets greed. A whole generation or two of nothing but greedy bastards who only care about their multi million bonuses, their houses in the south of France, their new Ferrari and to hell with everyone else in the world. One for all and all for me! Congrats CEOs. Worthless.

Can you say FURLOUGH?

Comment 11/18/11: Contractors are being forced to take 3 weeks off per year. Something called a furlough. Overheard it in a SARM meeting & later again by a toronto ibm tech. That represents 4 months of savings gone for most.-Shadowschild-

Comment 01/28/12: There will be a BIG RA in GBS in 1Q12. This is a fact. folks will be told end of Feb and end date will be end of March. Folks in all areas will be affected. The only way to keep showing profit increase is to kill off expenses since revenue is not growing. US resources are major targets.-RA coming-

Buh Bye GBS employees. Don't worry Obama has shovel ready jobs to build tunnels and bridges for people to live under and jump off of. Enjoy!

How about these stats...

Comment 02/04/12: Folks, just look at the number of IBM US employees over the last 6 years:. 2006 - 127K. 2007 - 121K. 2008 - 115K. 2009 - 105K. 2010 - 101K. 2011 - 98K. You don't need a Harvard MBA to see a trend there. Good old Sammy figured out a way to keep the stock price up. He cut cost by firing US employees. There is one problem with Sammy's plan. What do you do when the number gets to zero? Don't let Ginni continue to execute Sammy's plan. Support the Alliance and organize now before it is too late!-ScrewedBySammy-
