    There seems to be no problem for parents that need time to spend with or for their children but, what about the people that don't have children?

Women are not treated equally when it comes time for promotions.

It has been a good place to be - and provided many opportunities along the way to do a lot beyond the traditional career I invisioned when I started. While we can all complain about the day to day experiences, when push comes to shove, it has been a good career. I would encourage my own children to consider GE.

    My youngest children were born 18 years ago and the profile of the benefits has changed tremendously since then.

    I have been here nearly 28 years, as has my husband. This fall, we will have three kids in college - we are very likely to stay with GE until our retirement. However, if pressured to re-locate, we would strongly re-consider leaving the company.

Interview the hiring manager carefully and ask to interview other women in the department.

    It is really dependent on the group. My manager in the group I just left treated the two women employees as his personal assistant. My new manager is respectful of my position. I am paid $20K less than a peer who is male (I know because I helped to bring him in).

Top-down, the company is female-friendly, but internally there is still work to be done in terms of rooting out underlying attitudes. It's not perfect, but it's not terrible.

Seek out the opportunities to advance and grow- they are there, but you may need to be the one to initiate and take advantage of them.

    Varies from business to business, and in some cases by department or manager, but the company in general shows a lot of flexibility in work arrangements.

I work with a lot of female managers and staff, so from my perspective, there are a lot of opportunities for women. The fact that GE supports the fairygodboss organization and encourages us to participate in their teleconferences says a lot about the company's transparency and commitment to women's career advancement.
