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

There are so many programmes to encourage and promote women into leadership roles... right from joining as an early professional or an experienced hire, there is always the support network and the mind-set of wanting women to achieve just as much as men throughout their career at IBM.

    It can depend on the role you are in and the client you work for - but all in all the culture at IBM is very open to flexibility, as long as you are performing well in your role and getting the job done!

The people you work with are fantastic, I joined IBM as a student in 2007 and re-joined as a graduate in 2009 and have worked here ever since as the company really supports and develops you

Work-life balance is excellent, with the option of working from home occasionally for many roles, and often the flexibility to manage your own schedule around your own schedule.

    My role is very flexible, it allows me to work from home or the office. The technology I use in my role, such as video sessions allows me to have a great working relationships with my colleagues who work in the office and those who work from home. IBM are very flexible and understand and support personal matters can some time pop up in all our lives.

    Depending on the team, the company is very understanding on different needs, and the overall culture is that I don't feel anybody else would ever question why you have slightly different working hours.

    I am recently a new IBMer on my placement year and love how flexible the work/life balance is here at IBM. This is now definitely a quality I will explore and ask about with future employers as I think it is very important!

IBM is definitely a great place to work and the opportunities are endless, you can decide your own destiny. With access to mentoring, education, etc., as a woman, I do not feel (nor have ever felt) that women and men are not treated equally. You decide where you want your career to take you. Working for such a large company as IBM, you can try your hand at many things, and even make a complete change in career paths if that's what you want to do. Diversity abounds at this company, giving you the opportunity to work with a vast range of intellectual, insightful, individuals who offer so much to the success of IBM. My only strike would be that although the flexibility is great, the jobs are typically demanding and the "work" piece can sometimes outweigh the "life" piece of "work-life balance".

    In my years at IBM, anytime I needed flexibility in my schedule, whether daily (drop/pick my children up), family emergency, etc., my management has always been incredibly flexible in letting me work my schedule around my family needs, which is critical for me, as my husband does not have the same flexibility.

IBM is excellent on gender issues, really and truly, but sadly layoffs mean this is not a great time to be an IBMer

    There has been a back to the office push, but it varies by department. In my experience, at most, you need to have a reason to work from home and do it once a week or less.

    Maybe. IBM is really good at gender equality and excellent policies, and it was a great place to be a female engineer, but the scale of layoffs recently is alarming.
