My father worked for IBM in Poughkeepsie NY.
Growing up it seemed every family had someone working for IBM.
What I remember about growing up in Poughkeepsie was the IBM Watson Country Club.
We spent a lot of summer's there as well as weekends.
My father played handball at the courts while my brother and I would wander around doing kids things.
They had a bowling ally, full basketball courts, golf course, multiple ball fields, playground, you name it they had it.
On the 4th of July they would have fireworks.
I played on their baseball team / league, went to summer camp, played golf and tennis.
Growing up you take this for granted.
I have yet to find an employer who offered such amenities and don't think I ever will.
Back in the 1970's working for IBM, you had a job for life, assuming you didn't steal or drink on the job, I suppose.
Man, to think about having a single employer for life.
Can't even imagine it.
