Senior Technical Staff Member Job Reviews
Lady Network Geek
Senior Technical Staff Member
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.

Recommend to Women?
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.
