    Have women who are doing higher level work in a lower level job be recognized and promoted to those level jobs. Definitely the good ole boys club still in existence.

GE does a pretty good job of catering to flexibility for its top performers. But for the rest of the 70%- I would say it is very job and manager dependent.

It is a challenging place to work. There is not room to hide. If you work hard and rise to the occassion, you will be rewarded. It is a meritocracy.

If you are looking for flexibility and work life balance this is the place to be, However, women do have to work harder and push harder to rise to leadership roles. Much harder than their male counterparts.

Great benefits and flexibility. You have to want it though. Although many women leadership position, in comparison to others, there is still a gap in the technical side of leadership positions.

    I think flexibility is great, especially when compared to what I hear from other people in other companies. This has been the only company I have worked for, 13 years and counting. With that said, although there is a lot of flexibility, I still believe the expectations of AMOUNT of hours that are required to be successful is still very high.

    I could have taken up to 16, Did for other reasons other than employer.

I think that GE is heading in the right direction for women, but there still is a long way to go.

    The flexibility depends on your job, but as an employee in the manufacturing function, I work very long hours with very little flexibility.
