Love working here. My boss is a female, and she supports the need for flexible hours.

There are women in leadership roles as well as individual contributors. Generous family leave policy , and perks/benefits for new and expectant mothers such as designated parking spaces and pumping rooms, and paid shipping for breastmilk for travelling moms.

Lots of excellent female mentors and ethical managers, good salaries, and flexible hours. Sometimes high expectations and lots of meetings.

Save you money as the severance is horrible. Other than that, just a fair warning about having to work extremely hard to maintain the same job as a man.

    I worked remotely and very effectively along with many others for most of my career.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Lacked in gender equality and no loyalty to long time employees.

    Too late :) I agreed to my lay off offer this past August. My only option would have been to relocate to Raleigh N.C.

Amazing benefits and parental leave that is flexible for 12 months post delivery is awesome. Over half of my team and superiors are women.

IBM has been a boys club and still remains one today. Many talented women are overlooked for job promtions and leadership positions based on a internal network that reminds me of high school. If you are not one of the them you will struggle to get an inside track.

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).
