Very fast paced environment - but they offer flexibility in work hours, part time and have been very supportive. While the company offers this type of flexibility - your satisfaction with it will ultimately depend on your direct manager and his/her expectations.

If you're an expert, your gender doesn't matter - career oportunities are equal.

Medical benefits and retirement has declined tremendously; Caters primarily to millennials (who are still on parents health plan), which is convenient for GE for it seems to prefer short time employment and little incentive to keep employees long time---thus little investment to the "care and feeding" of employees.

Great employer that respects work life balance and is a meritocracy until you reach the higher management levels then the number of women senior leaders starts to drop off

Good woriking hours. You have flexibility with your job (of course depends on position). Benifits such as shorter working days, paid docktors apointment, flex hours. BIg company so you have oppertunity to develop! Big company so it takes time to make desitions here. Bad sallery development!
