"IBM's respect for diversity and inclusion is not a lip service, you can feel it in your daily work, from your manager and peers. As a millennial, I found myself exposed to many amazing and exciting opportunities in the company, and the leadership team will not discourage you to try. Also, the flexible time arrangement is something really attracts me. Besides the annual leave, managers are also caring about personal life, and they will support you to integrate life and work."

"IBM is a very flexible employer. Thanks to Home office I don't have to worry about the huge city traffic that I need to go through in order to get to the office from my remote place that I live in. As a woman I have the same chances fro my career growth as men and I feel we are all being treated with equal respect. "

"The organization is Great! Lots of opportunities for growth, learning, advancing your skills, knowledge, and variety of initiatives in addition to your full time job. However, in practice there are barriers that do not allow everyone to perform at the best, people who abuse their authority to prevent others from success or simply to intimidate them, or exclude them from engaging with teams that they work with (perhaps to suppress them from succeeding or performing on par or better than their peers), or blatantly frustrate others. While the organization is striving to make positive strides to level the playing field, there is no real accountability to ensure the practices are being adopted. Women in particular are still not treated fairly but their counterparts;I have witnessed an extreme case of women being disrespected by a male - and that was not the first incident he had. Nothing happened to him."

"Technical positions are held primarily by foreign males. There is little security or advancement for Americans, let alone female Americans. Getting a promotion means almost no work-life balance. Recent layoffs disproportionately affected older women, and recent exposes have uncovered that IBM favors millennials and deliberately set out to reduce "older" employee headcount (i.e. anyone over 40)."

"I have worked here for over 5 years now, and in that time I have been able to have the flexibility to be able to meet my kids off the bus every day after school and then continue to work from home. I have been able to be home with them on sick days, adjust my time for appts, etc. It has been a very good experience for me. Plus there is a great encouragement to grow your career here. I used to work in government, where you see almost no growth or movement, but since I started here, I've gone from a junior resource, to a senior consultant and manager."

"IBM is a great place for women to work. I have had incredible mentors and managers who have opened doors for me to advance. I have had the opportunity to work for different clients, in different industries, in different countries, and on very different types of projects for the entirety of the time I have been with the company. This very much fits my personality, and personal motivation to come to work each day. I love to be challenged, to have to learn on the go, and to never be sure what the next project will bring. I have thought a few times about moving in-house somewhere, but honestly, it just doesn’t appeal to me because I can’t imagine doing the same thing day in and day out! I gained so much from having hands on technology delivery experience in previous roles. "

"At IBM, you have to take ownership of your own career. If you are someone who waits for instructions, or a big opportunity to prove yourself, this is likely not the right place. It doesn't have a great mentorship culture. However, if you are willing to take chances, and instead of waiting for the "right" opportunity, reach out to other people and create those opportunities for yourself- this is a great place! The best part is- you can literally find the one person who is the best in their industry, you can set up some time with them and learn from them- hack the learning process. Finding that person is like finding a needle in a haystack, but it can be done. Also, you will learn an incredible amount. I have been here for 2 years, and I have taught myself everything from agile development, to newest testing methodologies, to automation technologies to Blockchain- all because I just reached out to people and asked them what they did!! And did my homework on how this applies to my current role... "

"My maternity leave was part of the previous company before IBM acquisition. According to IBM's policy it is now 18 weeks paid if normal delivery, up to 20 weeks for C-section."
Would you recommend IBM to other women?
"I am an IBMer through acquisition and while there are a few key women in leadership, most upper management are old white haired males. The company momentum and initiative seems sporadically spaced and hard to tap into. The company IBM acquired was more focused on work-life balance and had a better team feel. Joining IBM has diminished that culture. While there are flex-time policies in place, the culture is very much focused on working more than your peers to earn more recognition. There is also very little stability or continuity in transitions. There have been several layoffs and no clear communication on transition of responsibilities. There is a nice maternity leave/parental leave program and I have had coworkers take personal leaves of absence which was more accommodating than the previous business structure."

"The leadership culture at IBM is not transparent. They are in financial ruins and constantly going through "transformations". The company also hires many roles females hold in the HR and Talent space as "Long Term Supplemental" employees. They do not believe in hiring the overhead employees as full-time employees and it sets a horrible tone and morale. Essential if you are a "cost" you will be a contractor or internal contractor of sorts for 10+ years. They also bait and switch these roles. Often advertising them as full-time roles then changing them to long-term supplemental once they offer the position. If you want to get promoted you have to align yourself with a female in the organization that believes and you and most of them don't because they are only focused on getting to the top for themselves. There is a lack of diversity and they are not even trying to increase diversity efforts at the senior levels. The company functions as an old ship, used to doing things the old-fashioned way and not willing to be innovative and step up and take a chance to be a 21st-century industry leader. Managers are also catty and unprofessional, and untrained on how to actually be people managers. The current culture is one of anxiety where everyone is anticipating getting laid off or team members are resigning left and right. "

"Transition is good to keep one's finger on the pulse of the marketplace. This being said, provide more support to employees to help them succeed in a constantly changing environment. Six managers in 3 years is extensive. And change in process is not always necessary, as a matter of fact, it can lead to chaos. Just because it's new doesn't mean it's better. "

"Change in mindset and attitude of higher leadership. It's only a saying that IBM respects diversity, but women pay for that "flexibility by getting lower ratings, lesser promotions, low pay. It's not a real flexibility, its a trade between a women employee and her personal requirements. I have myself been through cases where Male employees are not available in office hours, but that becomes ok for managers. But a women employee "coming early, leaving early" is seen as "unavailability" of that women."

"I would definitely recommend other women to join our company. There is less stress comparatively and also it is very flexible with time and work as long as the work is done. we have more options like work from home unlimited sick leaves, cab facilities and many more. we have IBM club which conducts several fun activities. IBM has very less tolerance to workplace harassment. With all these benefits it is really hard to leave IBM once joined. But the only thing that i found a little disappointing is the compensation."

"I have worked at this company for 9 years and have experienced many changes in that time. Recently, I have seen many strong and influential women leave the company to pursue other interests or positions, which has left a significant void of senior, high profile - high visibility women leaders in the company. I do feel that the company will address this, as diversity is a priority."

"I feel enabled to take time off to go to an appointment, or work from home when needed. My team is global and a lot of meetings are remote, so working from home when I need to is not a problem. Likewise, my manager operates in a trust-based way; he doesn't mind if I'm not at my desk strictly from 9:00-5:00 so long as my work gets done with quality. Definitely a plus. "

People at IBM are very supportive and there are numerous resource groups within the company to help you find your way"

"I have been VERY fortunate to have a completely flexible schedule, working from home and adjusting my hours as needed to address family needs. This, of course, depends on your job role, your management team, and your track record - but the potential is definitely here for work/life integration and support for family needs."

"I adopted, and at the time, adoption leave was only 2 weeks, so I took that plus 3 months of FLMA, unpaid. Since then, IBM has greatly enhanced their maternity leave policies so had I adopted now, I'd have gotten a much better leave, with pay!"

"My experience here has been that everyone (individual contributors, at least) is underpaid and medical benefits are not good. They did recently extend maternity leave to 12 weeks I believe, but it's still not great. My department has been great with flexibility but it's at manager's discretion so it really depends on whether you luck out in that regard. In addition, we were told there would be sexual harassment training coming last fall, but none has yet. I personally know of people who've dealt with this, and it seemed like HR treated the victims as the perpetrators. The lack of training therefore seems like a huge problem."

"Although we have flexibility, there is a huge concern from management about our timecards and how much time we bill to clients versus general work time. This makes it difficult to get involved with any internal groups (women's groups, etc.) that aren't directly related to a client. So they may support flexibility in some ways but they definitely hinder it in other ways."

"I think my particular department thinks flexibility needs to be fair across the board and doesn't take into consideration the employee necessarily. Someone with more tenure and demonstrates a high level of performance should be allowed more flexibility with work from home than those who have not been in the company long and have not "proven" themselves.

"The culture is extremely flexible, in that you are set up to be able to work from anywhere, with a laptop, cell phone, and various tools that make it easier to collaborate remotely. However, because you're so connected and accessible, it can be difficult to separate work and personal life. Many employees stay connected throughout PTO, meaning they don't get as much R&R out of PTO. "
