Both the ACM and IEEE have their name attached to a host of conferences and journals. Some are known to be better than others, but I feel generally that any conference or journal with the ACM or IEEE brands attached are considered decent quality. (Questions like this indicate I'm not the only one to think so.)
Question: Are publications in IEEE and ACM journals and conference proceedings automatically considered decent quality by prospective employers in academia? (When applying for postdocs, assistant professor positions, and so on.) Or is it more nuanced than that?
Essentially, I'm asking what weight do these brands have.
The ARC ERA2010 rank these journals and conferences from A* (the best possible ranking) to C (the lowest possible ranking). But it's possible that these rankings are not an accurate gauge of the community's attitude towards a particular journal or conference.
