For women IBM is one of the best places to work with. Depending upon her area of work she may opt for work from home option. IBM gives great work life balance.
As such their are negligible cons as it depends on what project one works for but, IBM has very good policies and helps women to excel in their career. I recommend without a second thought one should say yes to IBM for great work life balance.']
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 ..
