engineering manager Job Reviews
Women who are engineering managers have an overall job satisfaction level of 3.3, 25% of them believe there is gender equality in their firms, and make an average salary range of $100k-$150k.
I love everyone there, and do trust they'll find their way. Ask directly to see that it's what you want to do.
The company offers a very broad range of career opportunities with its diverse portfolio. There are women at the officer and board levels. We understand that our biggest issue with increasing women in leadership positions is the mid-career opt-out, and we're actively working to fix that. I love that GE gives me the opportunity to take on leadership positions outside my regular job such as within the Women's Network and other affinity groups so I can grow my skills. It also allows me to volunteer to serve on the board at my university alma mater as well as recruit there and at other universities. Flexible work arrangments are available, and it's up to me to work out with my manager what makes sense for my role and my personal goals. I feel fulfilled at GE, and I hope to continue on this path for a long time.
I've been with the company for more than 10 years in various positions across 4 divisions. In most of them I didn't feel like being a woman was a disadvantage. In fact, my skills at building teams and meeting deadlines put me on a fast promotion path. However, my current organization is an old boys club, where promotions, projects and bonuses are based on popularity contests, not on actual results.
Every time they talk about hiring more women, they frame it as "lowering the bar". I have never worked anywhere with such a low ratio in my engineering department.
