Very good benefits, especially regarding family leave when adding a new family member. Very supportive of life as a mother. We are making an effort to increase gender diversity.

    Some departments and people are more respectful of time zone differences than others. I feel like there should be exceptional cause to schedule a meeting for required attendees outside their local hours of 8AM-5PM. This should be some sort of company - managed, at least communicated, expectation.

    I had 2 pregnancies with this employer. The first one I took just 6 weeks - it was just a medical leave at the time. The second one I took 10 weeks including 6wks medical and 4 wks parental leave.

    More flexibility in where I live, considering my job is more than 50% on calls with people not at one location.

There are many women in leadership positions within the company and your growth is encouraged both personally and professionally.

    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?

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.

    Maybe. 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.
