They are supportive of worklife balance and the maternity/paternity leave has increased to about 4 months in the US. but the HR policy websites and directions are very unclear. Like they don't want you to take it. You also tend to get held back from promotions once you have kids depending on your manager even if you working twice as hard as others.

    it can be flexible but it depends on what department you work for. you can go out in the middle of the day for dr appt etc but have to work late to work with other country timezones on your team. that eats into family time.
  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    16 paid / unpaid

    They have increased the amount of paid maternity leave twice since i've been with this company. both while I was actually out. so they let me use it anytime within the next year. going on unpaid leave was a nightmare. very bad process, you have to get billed for your insurance benefits and it's not clear.

Lots of excellent female mentors and ethical managers, good salaries, and flexible hours. Sometimes high expectations and lots of meetings.

overall I would say this is a good company for woman to work with. It allows flexible working hours and doesn't require you always at the office. As far as you can be reached whenever the manager or co-worker needs you, it is ok for you to work remote.

I have worked for IBM for 28 years. I could have accepted a job anywhere, but I was promised "full employment" and "respect for the individual." We were told "family first, then God, then work." My how things have changed. I pay $1400/mo. for benefits that have high deductibles and co-pays ... management does not care about their employees anymore .. the future is bleak. I have to say, the first 20 years were pretty great .. management was very supportive of me being a working Mom. When our department got downsized, I was forced to move to a new area. It is a sweatshop. Management does not care about their employees, or give any appreciation for all of the hard work that is done. (I'm not talking monetary bonus, I'm talking "good job.") .... I plan to start looking for another job .. I'm just too miserable here
