    IBM believes in work life balance. The best thing about their benefits is there maternity and paternity leave. Fathers get up to 3 months of paternity leave and the months get about 4.5 almost 5 months worth of maternity leave. They understand that family is important.

    they're great! 401k matching, donation matching, competitive healthcare options, and flexibility to work from home whenever.

    IBM has just recently added 6 weeks of maternity leave in the US on top of the existing 12-14 weeks, which is amazing for new moms. Partners also receive 12 weeks off, which is also extremely generous compared to most other companies. Lactation rooms are also available for nursing mothers which makes returning to work easier. When I joined IBM out of college, this was not very important to me, but when I started a family, these benefits became invaluable. IBM also has good healthcare plans, 401k matching up to 6%, ample vacation time and paid holidays. I am very happy with the benefits package at IBM.

    Health benefits costs are expensive but that's not unique to IBM, and at least there's the option to get them. There is no retirement plan but there is a company match for the 401(k) plan. The catch is you have to be employed at year end to get the match. I love the option to participate in a wellness program that includes a discounted fitness tracker each year. It would be even better if the device was free like it was initially.

    Decent Medical, typical Dental, 401k I would rate as poor because you need to be employed for a year and then they match once per year so I wont see anything for 2 years.
