Long hours, hard to strike an acceptable level of work life balance; high expectations with too much on one's plate on a daily basis

    Ibm used to be very flexible... now they are going back to old models and discouraging flexibility like work at home options.

    Go back to how Ibm used to treat employees, with kindness and dignity. Now you feel like a number and if your skills are suddenly not needed you instantly become a problem

If your manager does not promote you, look at transferring to another department if you want to stay. I'd look to spend two to three years here for your resume and then leave to go to another company.

    Flexibility depends upon manager. Most frustrating is that I just discovered I was eligible for paid family leave despite being told over and over that I did not qualify for it. They kept it from me that I was eligible through the state of California.

    Maybe. If they are are a new college grad, working here looks good on the resume. How equal it is really does depend on the manager. But overall, I do not see much if any equality in pay and promotions, evaluations, and reviews. It is very difficult to get meaningful raises once you're hired in this company.

Ask for flexibility to accommodate your family schedule up-front, before you take an offer.

IBM's culture is built on respect for the individual, and has been for decades. Women do well here - our CEO is a woman, as are other senior leaders.

Currently the environment at IBM is one of flexibility, trust, and self-accountability. Employees place their whole heart into their jobs as they believe in the leadership of the company. Unfortunately there have been recent changes in middle management that are changing the philosophy to one of confinement and co-location.
