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.

It's all about the people you're working for. Some environments are great, some not so great.

With a few of the most senior positions in the company filled by women at the top, it's hard for anyone to suggest that women's careers here are not nurtured. The support network is great. Yes, it's a tech industry and there are a lot of men in tech. But the company walks the talk on flexibility and always has.I worked part-time for 13 years raising my kids, and it didn't hurt my career. Women are not judged harshly for also taking care of responsibilities outside the office.
