IBM is a very innovative company working with the great new technology and projects that are leading edge. This helps me to accelerate my skills and build experience in the most innovative projects in the world. I have the ability to work with a very diverse group of colleagues all around the world which makes me a proud IBMer.

I think for working parents (not just mothers), IBM is a good place to work because of the flexible hours. Most people at IBM understand the importance of raising a family and having a career. It helps to see mothers and fathers in lead roles, as well. They inspire younger working parents and they usually are empathetic to sick days, carpool schedules, etc...

    It often depends on the manager, not all managers are leaders in flexibility. But IBM as a whole pushes for work/life balance.

There are a lot of great women here that want to help other women succeed. I'm very impressed by the amount of leadership and influence that's held by women here at IBM, and have witnessed these women in leadership roles mentoring and raising up others. I feel as if my opinions and ideas as a woman in tech are valued and encouraged - and that says a lot about the value of this gender-diverse culture.

    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.
