Hey IBMers/ex-IBMers,

What is the designation hierarchy in IBM GBS for someone joining as "Advisory Technical Services Specialist" at "7A" band?

Like I would like to know what will be the next designation/band once for me if I get promoted?

Thank you in advance!

Hey Peeps,

I'm here in Georgia and really want to work at Google. I'm an educator looking to pivot into a non-technical role.

I see all these flashy TikTok videos where people with no experience got Project Manager positions and make six figures just to eat, shop, and have 2 meetings a day. I know there has to be way more to such an interesting position. Can any of you give me any insight into what a PM's day-to-day is like a Google?

I get to know this after 6 month of declaring my compensation plan

Hi my IBM sharks 👋🏻

Has anyone being on bench received automated mails from RoBoT_System@xxx.mail.ibm.com and been told something like this-
"This is in continuation of the multiple e-mails on the subject, right since you were 45 days away from your last assignment closure date.  We expect that you understand your personal responsibility to get assigned to a relevant project within IBM, and also expect that you take steps to achieve the same"

Is this something to be worried about?
