"IBM and IBM Research has changed a lot over the many years that I worked for them. The focus of IBM Research has moved from longer-term to shorter-term work, and from more academic topics to more practical ones. In the last few years, the pendulum has swung to very immediate concerns, driven by IBM's 2015 profit plan. For the last several years, I was in the Services Research department. That group was reorganized several times while I was there, and was searching for a mission. It didn't find one, at least not one that made sense to me. That was discouraging for me, and I believe for my colleagues. IBM's employment practices are excellent. Pay and benefits are good. Lots of flexibility regarding when to work, remote work, etc. The people around me were really smart, engaging, eager folks. They could accomplish a lot with better leadership."
"Great place to do basic research in Science and Technology. But my company's business priorities are constantly changing and hardware business might be completely gone by end of this decade."
