it's a very inclusive and equitable place to work ... I have never once felt discriminated against for for gender reasons.

    I think IBM policies and management are overall flexible and supportive of work life - the challenge in finding the balance is managing an enormous work loads with a lack of support for heavy administrative burdens - very typical of IBM roles - in particular as you move up the management chain.

My experience working at IBM has been great. As a full time IBMer , I have had the flexibility needed to be successful in career and at home. Being a mom of 2 is always a juggling act, but having flexibility in where and when i work has made all the difference.

If you have young kids this is not the place for you. A lot of the employees there are older (kids in college) or very young (just out of college no kids) so they expect everyone to have the same time abilities as they do

    I have been able to balance the many different stages of life at IBM. From an infant, to a teenage, to elderly parents. The culture allows for flexibility and managers supported.

    However, that was many years ago. Today our policy is 20 weeks.

IBM is great place to advance your career - both as an individual and as a woman. In my 15+ years in the company I have never felt that my gender has held me back or prevented me from going after (and usually getting) and opportunity that I pursued. We have a strong culture of inclusion and continuous learning, and opportunities to do new things and advance in your career are available for anyone who has the aspiration and ambition to go after them. The maternity (and paternity) leave policies are also very generous, and actually doubled last year, which makes it a great place to balance a career and a family.

    IBM has a long history of valuing work life flexibility, and while the responsibility for defining exactly what that means for each person largely falls on the individual, the company as a whole has a culture of supporting and respecting the individual needs of it's employees in this area.

A great place, where my opinions and ideas are always heard. The best part of IBM is the people and the flat hierarchy, everyone is committed to progressing one another and always happy to grab a coffee to learn about other areas of the business.

    IBM are great at recognising that everyone needs a work life balance, particularly for parents with children who are needing to do the school run etc. Opportunities to work at home etc.

Maternity leave is at your manager's discretion, but you get 12-14 weeks (6 or 8 depending on delivery form (natural/cesarean) plus another 6 weeks of bonding time). You still have to do any training that pops up during that time, so I ended up working during my maternity leave instead of focusing completely on my baby and me.

    I was severely underutilized. After being brought into a specific role from outside IBM that took advantage of my skillset, I was moved through a series of reorganizations into a role that was not a good fit, despite my attempts to move to a more appropriate role. Upper management needs to consider their subordinates' qualifications and experiences (that includes industry contacts) when making changes, and not move people around like checkers on a board for the sake of moving them around for headcounts.

    Maybe. Depending on the business area they would be joining. I believe women are treated differently in different areas of the business.
