"You will find the greatest support to flex as a working mother, but be prepared to have your contributions discounted *because* you actually flexed and therefore didn't put everything you had into the company at the cost of your family, like *men* do. Probably just the usual male bias rather than something specific in GE."

"Although General Electric has a permissive leave policy, taking any time off is frowned upon. Women in leadership roles at GE can struggle with work life balance due to the endless demands and the expectation to always be available. Many talented leaders have recently left the company, leaving amateurs at the helm. These new leaders have not maintained the culture of engagement, inclusiveness, safety, and work-life balance that I once valued."

"The work is good, the pay stinks. 38 pages of things you have to do in order to get a promotion. This is based on whether you have good or bad parts. Each step is page full of things you have to do. Unfair and ridiculously set up. I believe they do this to keep pay down. I have been with this company for almost 3 years, I will retire next year I know I will not see one promotion before I retire.

"As a woman in the Tech industry, I think GE is better than most corporations of it's size and global footprint. It is so large and complex that the pay and promotion opportunities depend on your company, function, location, team and most importantly your manager. It can be inconsistent. I've had good experiences in some areas and bad in others and I've heard lots of stories both ways. There is a public initiative to 'balance the equation' endorsed by the highest level. Hopefully they keep up the momentum. I work with a lot of wonderful smart women. We have fun at work everyday and the flexibility of working here is amazing. On the flip side, I tend to see more men getting high visibility projects and promotions on other teams."

"lots of growth and networking opps as it is a matrixed environment. Women at same level tend to still be the "doers" or executers of actions but I am personally okay with that as I like understanding the knooks and crannies of process at a very granular level so that I know when someone is telling me the truth, if I am making a good recommendation for the business and so that I can have productive conversations at a granular operational level for improvements."

"My husband is active duty military and my leadership is perfectly happy with me working remotely 100% of the time so that I can move wherever he is stationed. At least in my function and business, since my leadership believes in my potential they have the ability to be flexible with me so that I can keep working in the company. "

"It's a great place to work. GE does well at promoting women in management. However, there is a huge discrepancy in the technical track where I am often the only woman in a meeting (>95% time). That may be due to limited number of women in the technical talent pool. However, I've never felt I am treated differently because I am a woman."

"Great company, great people. Many groups have flexibility with work hours and working from home. Permissive PTO approach is beneficial if you utilize it, although the policy is based on manager discretion. Initial starting pay is fair, but increases are not competitive with the market. Many women in leadership roles."

"Great gender diversity polcity, and is strict on gender discrimination. There are management career path and technical career path. It is easier in the management role for women, and it is still difficult in the technical role. Women engineers are still constantly overlooked or spokenover when in meetings, when decisions are made, and when opportunities present. "

"To be ready to see very few women in technical or upper managerial positions. Of my group, there are 5 managers and 1 is female...and she is the manager of training, not of a technical area. There is a lot of policy and documentation around equality and goals for equality but anytime you look at management it must not really be happening...unless the position is a soft one such as HR or Training or Marketing. This is the same with other minorities...minorities are rarely seen in upper management. Of the 5 managers in my group, 1 is a minority (and it is not the female). It can be demoralizing to see that strides are not really happening when you look at the executive level and see minimal females...minimal minorities."

"Depending upon the level of the role you have, you have more or less flexibility. Upper management has incredible flexibility but entry level or field positions may not have much at all. It also varies by manager. Some provide support for flexibility and some rule with an iron fist."

"Regarding question #3, it is specific individuals who do not treat women and men fairly and it is very subtle, at my level. But it looks obvious at the executive level as there are barely any executives who are female...or upper management. At my level, it is in the language spoken, it is in how people are chosen for projects/assignments, it is in hiring. They have policies in place about equality and it would be very difficult to prove it is happening. If more women worked at GE and if more women were in positions of executive or upper management with actual power then things would certainly improve...so I would recommend this company to anyone who is also looking to be strong and stand up for more change to happen."

"I am a new employee in an all male small dept. My mgr is very nice, very conscientious and very professional, but I find that many times he doesn't seem to know what to do with me. He has said more than once that I'm more 'verbal' then he is. When we communicate via IM, I also seem to overwhelm him and he just stops responding in the middle of a conversation. He allots :30 every 2 weeks to 1on1 time, and we always go over. So he says he never schedules anything after our call [but he also never extends it]. I genuinely don't think I talk too much. I'm a new employee with questions. Others don't seem to feel that way at all toward me? I hate to call this a gender gap, but I think it might be?"

"Whilst GE's current drive to improve the gender gap in technical roles, this is not being replicated across the entire organisation or up to board level. Feels a bit like talking the talk without walking the walk. Low levels of females in middle management also."

"Working for this company has been better for me and my family. I am not made to feel guilty about picking up a sick kid from daycare or taking an afternoon off to attend women's networking event. My boss has repeated multiple times that family comes first. I feel that my company believes that if our home lives are good, we will excell more at work."

"From what I have heard (I am relatively new to the company) my department seems to be more flexible than some other departments. It works out great for me, but now I have to think about the flexibility if I want to advance my career and move to a different department, because it doesn't seem to be the same everywhere in the company."

"There has been a lot of good policy improvement in the last few years (Maternity leave, milk on the move etc). There has also been a big media push to hire more female talent and 'balance the equartion' but it doesn't always seem that what is being said externally is being put into action internally. It doesn't really feel like the leaders are truly trying to change the traditionally male dominated culture. There are still VERY FEW women in non-HR, non-marketing, non-communications exec roles. "
