Engineering Manager

Engineering

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 could not recommend the company more highly for women. Obviously GE is huge and everyone's experiences aren't the same, but my leadership is incredibly supportive, actively promotes me and gives me opportunities to shine, and is flexible and understanding about my personal life (I'm a military spouse). I feel incredibly lucky that I found a job that I'm excited about and engaged in, that allows me to continue my career no matter where we get stationed.

Very good benefits, especially regarding family leave when adding a new family member. Very supportive of life as a mother. We are making an effort to increase gender diversity.

There is a new initiative focused on encouraging more women to take and maintain roles in technology- essentially acknowledging that this has been an issue in our field and committing to do something about it. Leaders are engaged and processing are beginning to change.
