There is nothing more inspiring than being at a company where the most senior leaders are women, and there are lots of wonderful programs underway to support women at IBM.

    There are great opportunities for flexibility at IBM, however, in the consulting organization, most positions require 80%+ travel.

    It is so inspiring to see women in the most senior leadership roles! Would like to see additional women in middle management. Wonderful to see initiatives by Kelly Chambliss, GBS North America Managing Partner, to increase gender diversity in North America Consulting leadership.

I would tell another woman that the IBM environment is very fair to women and all progressions are not based on gender, but that progressions are made from anyone striving and making changes to further their career.

    As salaried employee, I have the freedom to make mid-day appointments without fear of repercussions from management. There is also incredible flexibility in terms of winter blizzards and ill children. IBM cares for all employees and is a great place to work.

After over two decades at IBM, I have always felt supported and encouraged as a women. Gender, truly never seems to play a role in any decision or strategy - at least, not in a negative way. There are several policies to encourage and promote women internally. IBM has all the resources and support to raise great women leaders - Ginny is a fantastic role model.

    I have taken 3 maternity leaves at IBM. In Canada - women are entitled to one-year of maternity leave with capped government financing available. IBM supplemented the government support each time to raise me to 80% of my salary for the first 6 weeks of the one-year leave.

    Flexibility has to be driven by the employee in terms of what is required/desired and supported by managers. Of course job committments need to be met - but the women who balance all three do very well.

Your work/life balance and flexibility mostly depends on the clients you are working for; often if they do not want you leaving the office, you have to abide by their rules and not IBM's more flexible policies.
