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.

Ask for higher salary for your first job at GE. Once that number is set they will only give you 2-5% increase regarless of position or any improvements you have done. In my last role I received my Black Belt and my PMP (Project Management Professional) certificates and it did not mean anything.

    It depends on your manager. My last manager tied me to my desk eventhough I have been in the workforce since 1994. My current manager does not care where, how and when I do my job as long as it is done.

You receive a lot of flexibility if you also show flexibility.

If you have a local site, GE is a great company. Great benefits all around and generally flexible for families.

    They are shifting to hub structures in the IT space and not being flexible to remote employees.

    The benefits have improved to the full 12 weeks paid since I had my maternity leave.

    Be more open to remote workers.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. I would recommend GE to YOUNG women. I don't feel they are currently looking out for their mid-career women.

    GE Capital is almost completely sold off. So unfortunately there are almost no job opportunities remaining.

There are posibilities but things don't come naturally. The problem is the country culture and not neccesarily the company culture.
