Procurement Buyer

ISC

January 1970

I've worked here for more than 2 years and there are a lot of women working here, but predominantly in support roles. Actually it would take quite long for one to see the big picture because each employee has limited work scope. Generally I believe male and female employees are treated fairly. It is a good company for females who may want to pay more attention to their families because home-office is allowed.

    Maybe. Depends on the team you are in. If you support an external client, it would be hard to expect work-life balance.

Very little work / life balance - you are expected to work long hours and put your job before all else to stay employed.

I was laid-off when my daughter was 18 months old. When I returned to work after maternity leave, I was diagnosed with Post partum depression and anxiety. I received zero support from the company - all that matter was my utilization numbers.

NA Learning Deployment Manager

HR

January 1970

I've been with IBM for 14 years and have had a pretty good experience, for the most part. I do feel women and men are treated equal; however, because of the role I was in there is a lot of travel required. This makes it difficult to have a family. The good thing, is that IBM is so big and there are other opportunities available with less travel, you just have to be proactive about finding those opportunities. Most of the women I work with, either have no children or their children are older, you don't see a lot of women with young children in my area. I think the travel makes it too difficult.

For consultants and higher levels, travel is expected. I, being an Executive Assistant, works well because I am a virtual admin. I work from home and can support Executives all over NA.

    Maybe. I would recommend IBM to Consultants or Management level I would not recommend to any Admin Assist because they are not hiring

The plus is that many jobs allow you to work from home. But you pay a price- you are expected to be available 24/7

I would tell myself to figure out what my strengths are and find a job the fits those strengths. Don't wait or hesitate because the opportunities are there if you go look for them.

Senior Technical Staff Member

January 1970

I've been with IBM for 20 years, and although technical men outnumber technical women by quite a lot, I'm happy to say I've encountered very few problems with sexism - the vast majority of people I've worked with have been respectful, and I feel my ideas and my work have been treated in a very gender-neutral manner. On the downside, I moved up the career ladder while also starting a family, and the amount of work and travel required have increased to the point where I feel I'm going to break. I just cannot recommend this job to anyone who has family responsibilities or doesn't want to live for their job.

    Maybe. Definitely would recommend to ambitious women who don't mind working a lot of hours. Would have reservations about recommending to women who have other responsibilities and require some balance between career and family.
