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 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.

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.
