"IBM is having an identity crisis. Coming late to the Cloud, they are struggling with recognition and market share. Add that to annual re-organizations (not an exaggeration) and the messages to the employees are often contradictory and even foster frustrating competition between groups within the same company. As a place to work, one often isn't sure of one's footing due to new and changing metrics and inconsistent resources in the ever-changing support teams."
