IBM is a great place to work. I highly appreciate their flexibility in work hours.

IBM is a great place to work. They have great opportunities and promote training. They provide flexibility for working from home or coming into the office.

    In my experience, I agree that there is flexibility and policies have been adapted to provide a very favorable work-life balance. However, there is conflict between the employer's policies and he reality of project delivery.

    I believe there was a promise made that projects would be required to have a balance of men-women. That has yet to be implemented. Accountability is lacking.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. 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).

Women can and do progress just as do men. We have many women in management and leadership positions.

I am able to work from home a little over half time at my current client. This affords me the ability to schedule home maintenance, activities with children etc. during my work from home days with minimal impact to my schedule.

    The flexibility that I am afforded had more to do with the client organization than with IBM itself.

One of the things I loved the most about coming to IBM was that when I on-boarded the group I came in with was mostly women. This was surprising to me because when I was in school most people in studying in my industry were men.

    You can take ownership of your own flexibility, meaning, through open conversations with your manager, you are encouraged to do what is needed to take care of self. One has to ensure their are accountable for their work, but also their health.
