If working a shift pattern, this is not adjustable and start/finish time must be met.

The flexibility culture is great. Generally fantastic though from a corporate diversity strategy perspective.

    First child in 1996, I deferred 2 weeks of vacation due to health complications. This was very painful and frustrating. Second child in 1999. Didn't try.

As with any job, it's important to have a great manager. Even the worse job isn't so bad, if your manager is fair.

    I think an employees manager determines the flexibility. The manager I have now is great at understanding we all have lives outside of work.

    When the TSA is over, help me get placed in another division of GE as a Program Manager or Scrum Master.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Not GE Capital Specifically since we are in the middle of selling this division. I'm hoping to join one of the other businesses later this year.

Very bright, dedicated women work in this facility. They are not afraid to ask for what they need. Everyone gets busy but if you require a meeting, you will get it/1

If you are interested in work/life balance and the flexibility to have a family, this is a great company for you. But if you want to climb the corporate ladder, shatter the glass ceiling, it's going to be a daily battle. There are not enough women in leadership roles, and while the company is working internally to change this, it's slow moving.

    The company is heading in the right direction, and there are certainly wonderful benefits to working here, but pay and promotion is a huge area for improvement.

Try to get involved with the Women's Network programs. If you did not go through one of the leadership programs, this may be your best bet to make connections to get ahead (if that is your goal).

    I find it difficult to advance in my career although this might just be an issue I am facing. Also, the company truly supports those people who go through the leadership programs. It you are an external hire, it is much for difficult to advance.
