I would say it depends on project as well as location. I was lucky enough to get work from home facility during my pregnancy. But few of my friends had to resign because their projects demanded them to come office everyday.
Once you are comfortable in the project, they provide work from home facility.
Pros: in same project, team members work from different locations. It is very easy to relocate from one place to another.
Cons: salary is less. In appraisal, hike is very low.
Pros: Work from home for certain designations, support women and protect them against any sexual harassment (IBM is best in this case)
Cons: Not anything specific to women. you cant carry your child along. Though they have flexible hours culture depending on the manager.
On paper, the policies are extremely women friendly, however with personal experience, it all depends on the manager the employee is reporting to.
Pros: Work from home option is provided for quite a lot of projects, cab service is available for projects with shifts, paid maternity leave and unpaid year long sabbatical is provided.
Cons: work from home depends from on the project and clientele, cab isn't provided on individual basis and is dependant of availability of service respective to the location.
In the location that I work in, IBM provides no creche or day care facilities. However, what it does provide is a flexible work option. I can work from home maybe twice a week..
I guess IBM is women friendly ..
