Policies are good, but overall tone and mood of the company is not. With the re-orgs, synergies, and cost outs, employees are left consistently wondering if they'll have a job.

    Flexible with hours and leave. Not flexible with location. Often, off-hour flexibility is entirely dependent on the manager.

    Paternity leave is 6 weeks. Very good.

    Good from a benefits perspective. However, leadership as a whole is disorganized and inconsistent.

GE is very diversified as far as gender, culture, sexual orientation. I have been working remotely for the past 11 years.

GE cares about gender diversity and is a good employer so I would recommend but I would also recommend that people spend the time to understand the values and leadership style of any particular manager and organization.

    I think the company has good flexible policy but when I speak to women deeper in the ranks it seems to become more manager specific

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.

    My role is very flexible, but many others do not have as much flexibility

    11 paid / unpaid

    I had to use vacation, but it was 11 weeks paid. Policy has changed since then to 4 months paid.

Ask a LOT of questions about how the manager feels about his/her team, the culture, strengths and opportunities for the business and the outlook.

    Culture changes - more open, collaborative, long-term strategy vs. short term returns

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Depends on the woman, her values and personality, and where in the company.

I would tell a woman who is early in her career that this is a terrific place to work, especially for STEM. For women who are more senior in their careers, I would say that the ability to get the top jobs is still very challenging.

    Depends on individual's team ... but generally you find flexibility (not necessarily work-life balance) is supported

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. In my division, the leadership is still exclusively white male (one white woman) and has been for the past several years. The glass ceiling is just tough, so wouldn't recommend for senior executive women. They are one level down, but don't get the top jobs.

There is a good deal of opportunity, but it is difficult to maintain a good work/life balance due to the amount of hours needed to work to be successful
