They are pushing to reach a 50/50 representation of women and men in the workforce by 2020. Even with the work reduction, they have reiterated this goal still exists and will be pursued.

Network because so much knowledge is in people's heads, not in process.

    Maybe. I would but sometimes the company or management can very inflexible. The company doesn't have good leadership at the location I worked but its that way at every division.

    Maybe. The company can be very cut-throat but not all GE companies. The division I worked for was this way but I have heard other GE businesses to operate differently. This is a lack of significant good leaders and team work.

The company stands behind diverse candidates of all color, religion, sex, sexual orientation/identification, etc., but there are still too many white men in senior leadership positions. We need to move faster to diversify thought and decision making across all leadership levels.

There are an increasing number of women in leadership positions, from local managers, to global corporate-wide positions. There is a strong women's network and flexibility to accommodate childcare, maternity leave, family balance etc is good.

It's only good for women if you're young. Age discrimination is real as well as discrimination against women. I don't recommend GE for anyone.

    They say they are flexible, but it will hurt you if you use it.

    Regarding question 13. below. You don't have an answer that works for me. I'm eligible for a bonus, but my bonus = $0. Technically I'm at $0-$10k, but I won't select that as it's $0. I've worked there for 17 years and NEVER received a bonus.

    I don't believe the company is stable and is about to tumble. Management needs to manage and NOT drink the Kool-aid. Need to treat people well. (I loved my work, but it was all outsourced to other countries.)
