Amazing benefits and parental leave that is flexible for 12 months post delivery is awesome. Over half of my team and superiors are women.

IBM has been a boys club and still remains one today. Many talented women are overlooked for job promtions and leadership positions based on a internal network that reminds me of high school. If you are not one of the them you will struggle to get an inside track.

Diversity is not only talk at IBM. IBM offers paid maternity leave in IBM US. They offer breast milk delivery in IBM Philippines. They offer same gender partner benefits in India. IBM Japan has a first-class program for people with different abilities to train them and stay in the workforce. In Russia IBM hosted the first Inclusive Forum in the private sector. There is a new Women Network in IBM Pakistan. Unconscious Bias sessions happen all over the world, in far away places like IBM Morocco. 80 bright, upcoming women in the Middle East and Africa got together in a session dedicated to building their leadership muscle and serving the community in Johannesburg. IBM Ireland has paid Paternity Leave. The list goes on. Net is: IBM gets things done.

I had twins and I was able to be dedicated to them for a full year, and got reinstated to my job. No questions asked. After that I worked 4 years part time, and finally when the boys started kindergarten, I returned to a full time schedule.

some roles are ideal, you can work from home and get support for that. if you are in a sales role it is hard if you have family

Expect to travel a lot. Not many positions allow you to work from home or have a good work life balance.

Be strong, and push back if necessary. You can't trust everyone, but there's a lot of good people here.

Both policies and staff are very flexible from an hours perspective - but be prepared that the company expects extremely long hours (eg, you will make up for it in spades) regardless of any life circumstance. There remains a wage gap and a glass ceiling that few can break (and when they do, there is a large social media expectation).

Even with a female CEO, IBM is still a man's company.
