IBM has a strong culture of inclusiveness and respect to each individual employee. This company truly upholds to this principle. As a woman in the technology industry, I know that my work is equally valued and above all, in high demand.

I recommend IBM as a great place to work, especially for women. IBM is an example of a company that uses its size as a force for social good (check out IBM Policy Letter #4 on YouTube!) and is trying really hard to create delightful experiences for its employees. Not everything is perfect, of course - but I feel really good working for a company whose behaviors are based in a set of values and principles that align with mine.

    I REALLY appreciate the amount of flexibility I have at IBM. While it depends on your team/business - I've found my teams and managers to be very flexible and understanding of the crazy that comes with managing a life outside of IBM. While there is an expectation that I will be in the office most times, it's totally my call to define what those times are. I also find that I want to come into the office because I really enjoy spending time with my colleagues!

I have worked in other high tech companies and I've never seen one as committed to diversity as IBM. Not just gender, but all aspects. But if you just focus on women, IBM has a female CEO, numerous female General Managers, and hundreds of female VPs and Senior VPs leading everything from Watson and Research to Cloud and Cyber-security.

    There are many opportunities to move into new roles, teams, and technologies. And continuous learning is encouraged which provides you with added flexibility to work in other areas.

    I've been recommended for promotions during my tenure, although I chose not to proceed with one. I've also been on maternity leave twice with IBM MEA, securely returning to my position and promoted. IBM is flexible on working hours and mindful of my responsibilities to my family as well

    Although based in the Middle East, with limited legal obligation on maternity, IBM follows global guidelines over local policy for maternity and paternity leave.

IBM values diversity, and I've never seen any difference in how men and women are treated, promoted, or compensated.
