Job cuts March 1st and 2nd.

You are correct. I get my packet in the morning. The big screw job is that I’m only getting 1 month severance instead of the 25 weeks I am entitled when I was hired. I’m thrilled I will be gone in 90 days and “stick them” for my vacation pay.

Heard notifications are going out tomorrow morning. Transformation and Operations. Aggressive. US and Global Delivery Centers effected. US employees are given 90 days notice and 1 month severance. Won’t that be fun for everyone?

Sent to Watching IBM: “After 41 plus years I got the call today. How many more ways can they take from hard working IBM’rs? I was ready to go last year when they had the severance package. Why didn’t they do it then? We have been living and working with this “writing on the wall” for years. What stings the most is the severance cut. But as everyone who is now an ex IBM’r I have only heard positive move in their lives. Praying for the same. Good luck to all who are caught in this today. ”

“I am a GTS Strategic Outsourcing casualty of the mass firing today. My manager told me it was big and widespread, and I’d be hearing from a lot of people that will also be notified today. My official end date is May 31, 2016 (90 days) and the severance package is 1 month. I was encouraged to look for jobs inside IBM and was told that they are “plentiful” and “open”. Even if I were to believe that, I’m not sure why I would stay, looking over my shoulder every month or so waiting for the IBM axe wielders to come for me again. I’m looking forward to moving on and leaving this nightmare behind me. I wish everyone good luck, whether you are staying or going. I’m not sure which group is going to need it more.

Job cut. GTS division as a service delivery manager.

Latest areas getting cut: AA IBM CMS Cloud Division; AMS Strategic Technical Services; Global Services Parts Operations; GTS Strategic Outsourcing. Workers are also reporting work is being moved offshore to Hungary and Brazil.
 Cuts in Poughkeepsie. Laid off as off as of 5/31 with one month severance. I believe all HWP in the strategic sites are being laid off. Inconceivable on someone taking over for us in 3 months but never under estimate this place. My manager was also let go.”
It seems that massive layoffs are taking place across IBM today. I am now in the Cloud division (as the result of a reorg last month), based in the U.S. We have a cross-functional team of approximately 25 people responsible for one of the earliest (and most successful) Cloud offerings in our previous division’s portfolio. Today found out that we are losing at least 4 people with the current RA.
The team has been spread increasingly thin over the last year to the point where we really can’t keep the service up and running smoothly and keep customers happy with the continuous improvements they expect. Instead, we are mandated to invest our limited resources in Marketing enhancements (that customers don’t care about) that will enable us to sell more of the product. Customers are becoming increasingly unhappy. The wheels are falling off the wagon.
