About 40 years ago, a mate of mine got a job with @IBM. Come and join us, it's great, says he. I didn't get a job with them. Maybe it was the shoulder - length hair, or something, but for quite some time now, I have been very glad not to have worked for such a horrible company.
I'm currently watching somebody who has been making money for the vile @IBM for several years, and is currently busy helping one of their biggest customers to cope with the steady stream of failures they are paying @IBM for. Supposedly, the person is now "redundant", an obvious
