    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.

There are so many opportunities for males and females, and I have never felt hindered from taking them.

    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.

IBM has been an incredible home for me for 23 years. I have been given significant freedom and opportunities to grow while also being given respect for my husband and two children and the time I need with them.

Balancing personal life and work life is not an easy task. In fact many times the two can become one. Having an employer who encourages flexibility is critical. As an IBMer, we are fierce in our commitments and passion to deliver great work, but are equally passionate about delivering that in our personal lives too. I truly beleive IBM respects that and encourages a focus on resilience practices so we can refresh and take care of our selves to give our best inside and outside work. The key to remember is that we have to honor ourselves with boundaries and utilize the wellness tools that are available to us.
