"It's honestly a great place to work. Hours are super flexible at IBM where it's completely understandable when life happens. Whether it comes to picking up the kids, unexpected hospital/dental runs, or anything else - hours can be flexible and done in different parts of the day. If your partner is a veteran, there's room for you to grow and develop at IBM with the amount of global roles available at IBM. This can help women to still move around with their partners while their partner is on the move. If you're expecting children, their parental leave gives us more time with our families. Our work culture is super inclusive that makes me feel like I belong. And there's just so much more. "

"My manager is the best one I've ever had in my life. She respects me, and does not take me for granted. Even with a small cold, it felt like my manager wanted to give me all the time in the world to rest just to get better. My manager is caring and empathetic to my team's well-being and life to the point where she even has a "Team Sharing" section on the agenda during our team meetings to give the chance for our team members to share anything they'd like the team to know. Hands down, the best supportive manager I've ever had."

"As an engineer I am all too familiar with being treated as unequal, especially at university. Since joining IBM as an intern, I have dramatically increased my confidence. Everyone in the workplace is extremely supportive and encouraging. I could not recommend IBM more. Although there are only a small number of women in my office, I never notice that we are a minority, everyone is treated equally and with respect. "

"IBM is a great place to work, especially if you have strong technical skills and leadership skills. There are many opportunities to move into project management, user interface design, and business analyst for those who are more "people oriented", but there are even bigger opportunities for those who can work in integration, business analytics, machine learning, and statistical analysis. IBM has a very aggressive policy of acceptance and assimiliation of women into the workforce, and encourages women to take on leadership roles."

"Equality has not been practiced here lately due to focus on the diversity agenda for branding purposes. Therefore, recruitment has been based on gender rather than talent. For example, males applicants have been intentionally set aside to increase the number of females in the organization. As a woman, I don't feel this is fair and demonstrates a company with the right view points. "

"Upper management rarely promote due to financial constraints from global. Therefore, a lot of talents are left in a job level for years (some even for 10 ore more) with little to no development due to this. Moreover, managers do not mentor and expect talent to swim by pushing them into the ocean. This is how performance is measured. "

"I have been working at IBM Ireland for 16 years. During this time at IBM I have been always given the opportunity to grow, learn and promote myself. I am also a mother of two small kids and IBM certainly gives me the flexibility to do both, be a caring mother and have the quality time with my kids and hold leaderships roles within the company. Another very strong quality IBM has is their commitment to diversity and inclusion. There is a very positive culture of equality in the work place. Considering the fact that I am a millennial with strong academic achievements and great working experience, skills 100% employable and demanded in the work place and I decided to remain with IBM as my only employer for the past 16 years, it is really testament of the great advocacy I have towards IBM, its values and way of working. I could not recommend the brand enough. Great team environment also... you are never alone...."

"If you want to work for a globally recognized company who are forward thinkers & actively build relationships with all the constituencies of business including clients, partners, communities, investors and fellow IBMers & restlessly reinvent themselves. A "Be Equal" culture who strive & encourage for woman in business you only need to look at the top leadership team to see this! Then IBM is for you. I moved to IBM in May 2018 & it was the best career move I have made , the role I have allows be to work with a multitude of people in a multitude of teams & business units across Europe & I can safely say the culture drive & business ethics is evident everywhere."

"There are many women at the bottom rung of my practice, but only one female partner... I think rising up through the ranks in the consulting practice might be difficult for women. But this is just my perception - not sure how it actually looks for women who have attempted it. Otherwise, IBM as a whole is an excellent place to work as a woman with awesome initiatives in place like Successful Women Inspiring Future Talent (SWIFT), tons of events for international women's day, and many policies in place to support women.

"I can only share my experiences, but as a mum of two in a challenging role and a long commute, I cannot tell you how supportive IBM have been since I joined as part of an acquisition. I've been supported through building my experience and coached (just pending my promotion board) by a number of other men and women. To be a female ally here is something that is held in great pride by m/f/x alike. I work a flexible schedule which includes elements of compressed hours, mix of office and home base and have been able to purchase additional holiday to cope with the childcare demands of school aged children. I am inspired by so many women in leadership here, as well as those I am supporting to be the women in leadership of the future. People think that consulting is an inflexible environment but I have found that I am treated more than fairly and am accountable and motivated. "

"There is no equality practiced here as hiring as well as promotions do not take to account talent and expertise.

"I can't imagine working for another tech company where males openly question the value of diversity or suggest that perhaps there is a biological reason women stay out of tech. Given the outsized influence of tech in our society, it's so important we are attracting more women into their industry to help shape the design and experience of products. It's so different at IBM - where we regularly look for things like unconscious bias that could be holding women back. Unless you look for it (and remediate it), bias will always be present."

"It's one thing for a company to have a commitment to flexibility in a handbook. It's another for them to have it in practice. Like when we give 20 weeks for maternity leave and give moms the choice of how they want to take it, e.g. one big chunk of time or split across a year --we mean it. People aren't fearful of taking their mat leave or their paternity leave. No one is penalized. I'm thrilled to have worked part-time for 13 years to raise my kids and was promoted and given great work opportunities along the way. And we have programs now to bring back women who opted out of the workforce for extended periods - we call them returnships. How cool is that. "

"There are a lot of opportunities to find remote roles that allow for more flexibility. However that means you are not client facing and likely in a "support role" think strategy, operations, communications, HR -- all still important to the business but not direct revenue generating roles. When you work remotely the hours are more flexible - you will still work the same as your colleagues but if you need to get something done in the middle of the day here or there or log off for dinner time or morning getting kids off to school it is possible. You just need to set boundaries and be willing to log back on if needed. "

"IBM's focus on diversity and inclusion in all spaces is second to none. We have such a rich history of inclusivity and support that is demonstrated day in and day out. And to be able to see Ginny Rometty's leadership, drive and dedication in action is an inspiration to all the women of IBM. Great place to work!"

"In the UK, if you are a female and a graduate, you should be okay. If you are a middle aged woman you will never make it anywhere inside IBM as you will seen as a threat to those who are now 'old timers' and lost every sense of femininity and vulnerability. You can count on being bullied, harassed and denigrated by your male peers and if for some god forsaken reason, you are a foreign female of race, colour, religion or country; they will treat you with xenophobic tendencies from the dark ages. Avoid IBM as there is zero inclusion. The diversity card is just ticking a box. They are decades behind their competitors. "

"Upon letting my manager know that this job was crucial to me when I was given the notorious PIP just before year end - they do this to pump as much revenue onto the bottom line by threatening your departure by pushing you into the brink (depends on your manager) - he never followed the written policies and procedures of this PIP, he never had weekly meetings with me, he never coached me, he never followed up on any autocratic milestones he put in place and he was never available when I requested his help. I was made redundant a week short of my 2 year tenure. "

"Since I started working for IBM, I have loved it. I was well-received, have been encouraged to take on more responsibility and leader-roles, got great benefits and hours flexibility. However, there is still a big gender gap but IBM is currently trying hard to reduce it and want to hire more women."
