hahahaha. how sad.

When I was mid level I had an ECD ask me to give her my honest opinion about some work. Stoopidest thing I ever did.

Had the same thing happen to me with a former strategy director. Still cringe when he said “Well that’s not what I was expecting.” 🤦🏼‍♂️

Planning to quit and start my own boutique consulting company. Are there any restrictions with regards to soliciting my old clients?

Hi all.
Has anyone in IBM been on bench for more than 4 months here?
I have been on bench for almost 4 months now & have been getting automated mails asking me to get assigned to a project by searching one by myself, else necessary action might be taken.

And are there any chances of being straightaway fired based on these automated mails?

I would genuinely need an advise from someone who is aware of this kind of situation.

Thanks in advance

Thoughts on “special” salary grades. I just found out the VP I was offered is not a grade 12 like most comparable roles (verified). Also not an 11, but an 11A. Slightly higher than an 11, a good bit lower than a 12. All due to the fact that it’s a leap from my current position. Why should that matter…..shouldn’t it pay what it should pay if I am selected, rather that curving down towards my current rate?
