Corporate divisions tend to be gender-neutral. P&L divisions have a little more gender discrimination, although very subtle.

Software Client Leader

Software group

In my experience, IBM does a very good job of encouraging employees to maintain a healthy work/life balance. Vacation and family time are respected and encouraged. As a work from home employee who is responsible for arranging my own calendar, I am able to manage my responsibilities with relative ease. Women are a minority in the company (nature of the history/industry) but that is slowly changing. Overall, a good place to work.

It's changed. You can't disappear for a year and be confident your job will be waiting.

Flex time, part time work, and work-at-home possibilities can be very beneficial. However, often times weekend, on-call and long hours are required which can interfere with work/life balance.

I've only worked here for a couple of years and so far I've been impressed with the work to life ratio. Unfortunately, I've been thoroughly unimpressed with the bonuses/pay raises, etc.

While there they were good about working with your private schedule if things came up. This was dependent on what manager you had. When getting hired, ask for the pay you deserve and what men would normally get.

I have worked for this company for almost 5 years. I have stayed after having 1 child, and am pregnant with my second. I will most likely switch jobs when we move to new city in 11 months for a larger salary.

18 years; most recently they have put me in non-travel role due to me having young children. Opportunities limited if you cannot travel.
