Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Visual Designer

I have been working at IBM full-time for less than a year

Pros

Diversity and inclusion program Free online courses provided for self-learning If you have a good leadership in your business unit, you're one of the lucky ones Benefits are good 401k available

Cons

Some teams operate without project management or without good project management No bonuses Gone are the pension plans

Advice to Management

Really apply changes with regards to diversity and inclusion, and truly target and eliminate systemic racism, gender bias, etc. Look into benefits of user experience research Apply EDT and iteration... to all aspects of org process, management, and business goals

Current Employee - Associate Director

I have been working at Cornell University full-time

Pros

Collaborative, intellectually stimulating environment and culture, great benefits, wonderful brand

Cons

Limited career progression for non-academic staff. Salaries on the low side but it is a university., so that is to be expected. Depending on your role, you can work long hours because many teams run... lean.
