Men and women are treated equally. While the female representation isn't high in all fields, the company is striving to improve diversity through recruiting and retention initiatives. I took my full maternity time & had the full support of my manager and team.
The company is diverse and does treat women fairly. Be aware the competition and expectations are high. You will be working extra hours and the life work balance is off. Weekends and evenings happen often. Review for GE Aviation
IÂ´ve worked at GE for 5 years and itÂ´s a great experience, the benefits for employees are really good and the flexibility is incredible! I think is one of the best company for women!
I generally believe women are treated fairly, but it is a male dominated culture and I'm unclear on how new review systems will impact career progression for women.
Women going through leadership programs or hired into leadership roles can have a fulfilling career. All others will need to find outside opportunities to advance. Work/Life balance depends upon whom one reports to.
I've worked here for over 10 years, and have had great success. My value is not based on my gender, but rather the role I play for our business. I can't say for myself, or any colleagues that we've been overlooked due to our gender. Although I think we may make slightly less.
It feels like a gender balanced environment, and in my experience, support of working moms. I am not one myself, so I can't say for sure.
I've worked here for almost a decade and I think it is hard to give an answer to this question that would apply to all GE businesses. They all have their own culture. It seems like men advance more quickly than women (mostly because they do). The Women's Network has never seemed like it benefits anyone to me. Like others said... Boy's Club.
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.
Good company to work for as long as you are willing to put in long hours, Network, execute and impress the right people. If you are one of the favorites or have completed a leadership program you will get ahead. Minorities still have work to do to get promotions and equal pay.
