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 worked here for 7 years and in several different sub-businesses. Generally, the industrial businesses have way fewer women than businesses like healthcare or capital. Also, women are typically in HR or communications roles in those businesses. I have been in countless meetings with 10 or more people (sales, engineering, IT) and I was the only female. There is a strong Women's Network that puts on programs. There have been recent changes & promotions at the very top level of the company and there are a couple of women who are now CEOs of sub-businesses. Perhaps that will make some positive impact.

I've worked here for 25 years and I'm energized by the people around me. Really top level talent and performers. In the right situation, employees are really empowered to make decisions. In some organizations, it's very political. I'm currently in one that is almost exclusively male run. This group is one to avoid. Overall, I've really enjoyed GE, had a fabulous career, and recommend it. But know that many of the attitudes are set. Promotion is based on who you know. And get to know a lot of men.
