    Improve the morale by not laying people off constantly but never backfilling those positions and expecting others to take on way more work.

Be vocal about and advocate for your needs - it's there for those who ask, but you do have to ask (or make a plan that works for the team).

    Added my personal vacation time on to maternity leave; policy and practices vary widely by manager and by country. They also have an amazing program in the US for moms recently back to work to ship breast milk home whilst traveling.

They are very keen to encourage more women to apply so put effort into understanding what is important to them.

I had a great experience in the Marketing department at IBM with some wonderful managers. I worked really hard from home. However, the new CMO has recently called the entire marketing department back into the office. Everyone in Marketing must work in one of the six colocation marketing hubs. I was asked to move to NYC but I declined. Therefore, I am now looking for a new job.
