Some parts of the business are more accepting of women than others. In some of the services and manufacturing spaces, it is still very much a "man's world." However, the Company is making strides all the time to make improvements and encourage diversity.
GE has been a great place to work for my first internship experience! GE is also doing a great job of continuing to hire women in engineering 4 of the 5 people on co-op with me are women which is usually unheard of!
Opportunity to work with very smart, driven and creative people on cutting-edge work balanced against high-degree of politics and hierarchial decision-making that does not foster transparency with regard to information and professional development.
GE has provided an incredible career for me spanning multiple internal businesses (GE Aviation, GE Power, and GE Digital). The ability to transition to new positions has allowed me to continue to improve my business & technical skills and still have a consistent job with the same employer. They believe in growing all of their employees skillsets and have continued to invest in me with continuous training programs.
The sky is the limit. With locations and positions worldwide opportunities abound for talented, motivated individuals. You will be challenged to your limit. The culture supports flexible work arrangements such as part-time, working from home, non-standard work schedules, and transitional work following maternity. Leaders tend to be capable and bright; mentors and countless networks are available. The work environment is intense with a direct correlation between results and recognition.
