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.

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

This is a reviw for GE Capital Corporation. This is a very competitive company to work for. If you are not a type A personallity it may not be the right environment fo you. With that said I will say that all of the woman in senior leaders do particpate in a lot of mentoring as well as helping other woman move up the coroporate ladder.

    My current manager is all about work life balance. It is so refreshing. Having the flexibility to be able to balance this has been remarkable. It actually makes you work even harder as you don't want the perception to be that you are taking advantage of that flexibility.

    Unfortunately GE Capital is in the process of being sold off so there are very limited opportunities to stay within the company. If this was not the current situation I would say that compensation would have been my choice.

GE offers great flexibility and parental leave plans. But, if you don't want to work all the time, then you need to set strong boundaries on your workload.

    Flexibility is great, but sometimes the workload is very large.

    Maternity leave plans have further improved since I took maternity leave. Now 12-14 weeks for both moms and dads.
