There is a genuine focus on promoting and keeping highly talented women.

The Healthcare part of the business has many strong leaders. the Women's Network across all businesses is active and provides opportunities to network and develop different skills.

    Again, being part of legacy Alstom Power C&G, there is an inflexibility regarding hours and culture.

    Help me find my next opportunity within GE since they are closing down my division and I will be laid off in June. I have reached out to Women's Network, but have heard nothing. I am uncertain how to move forward.

  • Recommend to Women?

    The organization I was hired into was acquired by GE and was never integrated into the GE family. Although GE acquires a lot of businesses, integration of those employees into the GE family is poor. Had I been hired into the GE family outright, my experience may have been different.

I think GE has one of the greatest cultures I have seen and there havent been instances of blatant discrimination that I have seen. However, there continues to be a subconscious bias towards women & the responsibilities they should be taking.

    I think there is flexibility on location, but little flexibility on time off/sick leave. We are told we can take time off, however, when we're off we are constantly contacted & expected to answer. If you take sick leave, it is held against you during performance reviews.

Be authentic, be yourself. Speak up, have confidence in yourself as you would not have been chosen if people didn't believe you had the qualifications and abilities to excel.

    The corporation level stats would probably differ from our interpretations in the trenches. The Boss I have today is one of the best I've had in my 30 years. It's nice also, that she's a woman!

In most cases, you are the only one looking out for you. We'd like to believe that employers would act fairly, but many are only looking at the bottom line.

    I was told there was no negotiation for my pay for my position, and I was told to ONLY apply to the lower level lead position as it would "mess up the system" if I applied for the Sr. Training Manager role that is an excellent fit with my career level of 17 years. Also, I thought it was dirty, that there were 2 of the exact same JOBS, 1 only ran internally same EXACT words, only thing different was the education. Internal job said "Masters" paying 96-116k, and the external that I could apply for said "Bachelor" paying 90k. I have a Master's degree, why am I not paid for that? I have proof of this.

    They're headed in the right direction, so I am hopeful. I haven't seen as much "action" in terms of transparency of pay that I would expect.

I would say that women tend to represent about 1/3 of leadership.

Involvement with Affinity Networks is key to helping navigate the gender Gap. The corporate leadership team is making efforts to close the gap and have a goal of having 20K women in technology positions by the year 2020.

    It's a male dominated workplace. Sometimes navigating through the gender bias with peers can be challenging.

Leadership development and promotion opportunities are available for women. The company is very focused on ensuring women are well represented in leadership and compensated fairly and equally.
