It's all about the people you're working for. Some environments are great, some not so great.

With a few of the most senior positions in the company filled by women at the top, it's hard for anyone to suggest that women's careers here are not nurtured. The support network is great. Yes, it's a tech industry and there are a lot of men in tech. But the company walks the talk on flexibility and always has.I worked part-time for 13 years raising my kids, and it didn't hurt my career. Women are not judged harshly for also taking care of responsibilities outside the office.

Both men and women are treated equally for the most part. You will still get those instances of having an idea and a man not listening at all or later making it seem as if it was their idea.

IBM is still under 30% for women in leadership positions. While they have many programs to help women move up in the business, it's still challenging in the culture.

IBM is, at least in the area I worked, a place where women are hired, mentored, sponsored, and promoted fairly. While the current outlook at the company isn't so hot (general morale is down, no matter which gender you are, which I why I didn't give it a top rating), now that I've been away from IBM for a couple of years, I realize how spoiled I was by the excellent gender equity within my organization compared to my current employer. Many companies *talk* about gender equality in the workplace, but in my experience, IBM actually *walks* it. At IBM, I had female role models in all higher-level positions (at one time having all female managers: first-line, second-line, director and VP - in a VERY technical area!), and the women's networking, mentoring, and sponsorship efforts are plentiful. I worked from home for over a decade and still felt connected and respected by my peers. Finally, when I told my manager that I wanted to take seven months of maternity leave (most of it unpaid, of course), my manager didn't blink an eye...and my job was still there when I returned. I will forever be grateful to IBM for allowing me that time with my son without forcing me to step completely off the career track.

There are MANY pros for working for IBM: the benefits are incredible, the 401k is too, I made very good money in my role, I worked from home, and I worked probably 4-5 hours on an average day (of course I worked occasional 10 hour days but it probably averaged out to about 5 hours a day). That being said, I experienced a few negatives as a female. I was the only female on my team for a year. I was also the only person under 40 (and I'm way under 40) on the team. I experienced numerous inappropriate comments from the men on my team, and my manager was the worst offender of them all. That being said, I do not think my experience was typical - I have many female friends within IBM who never experienced anything of that sort.
