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.

In my field you'd have a problem with kids and family if you don't have a support from someone else, even though company has 6 months of parental leave for women. In the beginning and in the end of months we work overtime, after 10 PM because we provide coverage for Mexico country (difference of 4 hours). We can work from home sometimes but flexible time is something we almost don't have (mainly because of our workload). However, if you're single and don't have kids, you have a great company to work at in matters of professional development (but maybe will also have issues with work-lige balance).

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

Good overall culture for women, however I travel a lot so that is something I will have to think carefully about when it comes to having family. I have however seen women helped to travel less when tthey have families, and I was enabled to work from home when I had an ill relative.

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.
