I don't feel my time off is counted. I feel like I am expected to accomplish my tasks but if I have something that I must do personally I feel like I can adjust my schedule to accomodate both. I don't feel like I work with a lot of women but I also don't feel like I am the only one.

    I did take maternity leave at GE Power (now GE Energy). I had 8 weeks paid disability leave plus 6 weeks unpaid leave for a total of 14 weeks. I asked and it was granted.

    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?

Corporate training programs, affinity networks, and improving benefits such as permissive time off are positive.

    Great flexibility policies - PTO, flexible hours and work arrangements, but those exercising the flexible arrangements were impacted by recent lay-offs.

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.

    Whilst flexible working policies exist, they are very much dependent on manager's discretion and biased towards mothers, and not women without children ie it's still discriminatory.

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.
