IBM
WorkAfter quite a long journey with my employer, I'm now officially an IBM employee! I was transferred under the TUPE regulations, which state that if a client changes a contract so that a service transitions to a new provider then the new provider must take on the staff from the original provider. Simply put, Vodafone decided to change suppliers from Sagentia (my ex-employer) to IBM (my new employer)... and all the staff on the project moved over to IBM! For now we're all still working on the same project (M-PESA) - it's very nice moving to a new company and not being surrounded by complete strangers and having to start on an entirely new project right away.

It's quite a change going from a company with about 150 people (30 in my office) to a company with about 400,000 employees globally! Also, I'm in a company that supports open source and UNIX systems more than Microsoft systems, which is a refreshing change.

Is there anyone else from IBM that reads this? If so, look me up on BluePages! ;)
