Yes Genius, real high tech. So high tech in fact that 15 year old Indian kids are doing their work for $7 an hour. That's yankee ingenuity. Time for you to get your head out of your ass Genius.
Here is a good place for you to read about all the yankee misery in IBM. You can read for hours. Hope you enjoy as much as I do everyday. They have not gotten raises for years and fear getting fired every single quarter of every single year. One by one them they are going to contract labor at greatly reduced wages without benefits, or their jobs offshore to India.

I have been reading the whining and crying these union loving yankees have been doing for over a year now. It is one of the highlights of my day. They actually think like you do that they truly possess some "high-level technical jobs" skills as you phrase it. It's 2010. They are a dime a dozen if they don't mind living in India and working as contract labor without benifits that is. Sixth graders can now do the programs these overpaid scared yankees are doing. Feel free to pass it on to any of your fellow "high-level technical" yankee buddies and tell them I wish them for this approaching holiday season a "Merry Foreclosure to all and to all a Good Riddance" this coming holiday season. Here's hoping many of your family and friends are IBMers.
I love reading what I write. I am so correct. Sometimes I amaze myself.

Cry me a river you Dubuque IBMers. LOL and this guy says he is a "highly educated individual". He sounds more like a Bernie Madoff investor who wanted something for nothing. Merry Christmas in Iowa yankee boy.

Comment 12/15/10: "I am a current employee of IBM here in Dubuque. I don't really like to brag much on myself, but it should suffice to say that I am a highly educated individual, with a very specific and valuable skill set. For those of you who don't know, many of us were lured here from other places around the country on the illusion of lower cost of living, and the out right lie of being that this is a new center there would be plenty of opportunity for advancement within the company. Before I accepted IBM's offer I (ignorantly) made the assumption that the initial offer was only temporary, and would go up drastically after a probationary period of 6 months or so. This was not the case. I have been identified by several of my colleagues and even my team lead as a top performer on my team, and still I am making about half of the average for someone in my role in the state of Iowa. While I suppose this is just a rant about how much my job sucks, I really hope people will read this and take some action. I hope the fine citizens of Dubuque will stand up for their new neighbors and protest the mistreatment that is taking place right downtown. I would like to see either IBM pay fair wages for the work people are assigned to do, or I would like to see people come out and protest IBM's false representations, and eventually drive IBM out of this city."
To my fellow IBMer in Dubuke IA. IBM did the same thing to IBM Endicott. They fired all of the IBM Personnel at building 18- and buidling 14, and they hired back IBM personnel at a lower wage and a lousy benefit package, and changed the name of the company for tax purposes. IBM goes into smaller towns like Endicott and Dubuke and treats their employees disrespecful because they know that they are the only game in town. What a company! Support the union.-Ana-
Alliance reply: Thanks for your comment and your support. There are some inaccuracies in your comment. IBM sold the entire 4,000 employee, Endicott site in 2002, to a group of investors. 2,000 IBM employees became employed by Endicott Interconnect Technologies.The new EIT employees wages were NOT lowered. The OTHER 2,000 employees remained as IBMers. It is not accurate to say they changed the name of the company for tax purposes. You are correct about the disrespect from IBM and EIT toward their employees. EIT immediately fired 200 of their new employees, 2 weeks after the sale of IBM was signed on the sale contracts. They were about 35 separate contracts that were signed between Huron Associates, EIT and IBM. EIT got millions of taxpayer dollars from NY State, thanks to the then-Governor George Pataki. EIT also got a significant break on their energy cost from NY State Electric & Gas. That agreement exchanges an enormous cost cut on 225 million kilowatts usage, for EIT's promise to retain 6,000 jobs at the site. The problem is, there never 6000 jobs to retain in the first place! Secondly, EIT breached that agreement 2 weeks after the sale, by firing 200 of the 2,000 'former' IBMers that were forced to work for EIT or lose their job after the site sale, to begin with. Since then, EIT has reduced their employee number from 2000 to about 1100. IBM pays EIT/Huron to lease the former IBM buildings to house their remaining employees. The number of IBM employees that now work at the Endicott site is about 500. IBM continues to cut jobs there and soon there will be no more IBMers left, in Endicott NY.

southerns are jealous of newyorkers n northern people because 1) we won the civil war 2) were street smart and not slow like them 3) were more advanced 4) were honest people tell it to your face. and the list could go on.... so im not suprised when ignorant southern people say negative things about northern people.

theres no reason for southern people to not like northern people unless there jealous. and if you ask me its very ignorant and dumb how people fight over north and south. were still in america people ! we still live and stand for this country. so stop the baby games and stop sterotyping and just all get along.

Here is what tickles me as a large shareholder of IBM...

Comment 2/19/11: Just watch the IBM stock price, the higher it goes the more RA's inevitably follow. The IBM executives are doing all they can to get fatter and richer and will stop at nothing to boost the EPS even if it means IBM will soon become a dinasaur once they all cash in.- anonymous

IBM executives thank you from the bottom of my greedy little heart for not only myself, but for all shareholders.

Rolling, Rolling, Rolling
Keep those RA's Rolling
