Manager - Technical Writing

Engineering

January 1970

The sub-business that I'm in is mostly made up of STEM roles and is male dominated; however, the company as a whole is driving initiatives to get more women into the business and has a mandate for gender equality in the entry level leadership programs by 2020. It's a tough initiative, but I do give them kudos for it.

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.

    Note that the 6 weeks paid leave is AFTER paid disability leave - I did not incorporate that into my response. I had 8 weeks of paid disability leave as well.

Customer Service

January 1970

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
