IBM is a wonderful company if you can find the right role. Growth areas such as data analytics, cognitive computing, cloud, etc are hot items, and will receive good support within the company. 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.

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 took leave shortly before the leave was extended. I took the full 8 weeks offered at the time, and I took 2 more weeks as short term disability due to post-partum complications.

    Compensation is low across the board and benefits are not great. I would need both of those things improved for me to want to stay long term.

    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.

Having a female CEO really helps to instill the "sky's the limit" mentality for women.

    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.

There are no unwritten rules or conventions to get in the way of any man or woman climbing to the top of the organization. We have a female CEO and many female SVPs. The sky is the limit here.
