GE is a great place to work for a women. Truly believe in balance the equation and promote women for leadership roles. It is an intense company so the next step would be to develop more flexibility to improve the work life balance.

This is a great environment for women, however there are some old-school leaders still around who don't get it. Their voices are mostly drown out by the good ones though.

The company's policies are in general pretty good at industry average or above (although the industry isn't the most progressive one in terms of gender balance). However the experience varies greatly depending on who your boss is. I've worked for some amazing bosses who cares to develop his/her team, and I've worked for some not so steller ones.

The policy isn't the same company wide. Depends on which unit of Siemens, the policies and degree of flexibility varies.
Maybe. Depends on the person, the position, and location.

- GE is an amazing place to learn and start your career - Excellent family leave policy that has improved greatly over the years; however, for variable compensation employees, they do a poor job of educating and administiring the policy while on leave.

Great plan, but poorly administered for variable comp/commercial talent. I spent hours to verify and understand the policy and ensure that I was appropriately paid.

Great parental leave policy. Depending on your position /manager/location, there could be a great deal of flexibility for high performers.

Stop misogynistic and hegemonic practice during meetings, interrupting women, making crude jokes. Insisting women stay at home.

Overall great benefits and opportunities to be flexible. Your manager and particular role will influence your ability to leverage some of these.

I see women in leadership positions but many are married with a spouse who works a more flexible job or stays home. Difficult to see how it can be done with competing careers.
