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.

If you are OK with a lot of change and uncertainty, but like the ability to work on what matters & learn continuously, this could be the place for you!

    Huge place so flexibility very much depends on the responsibilities you have. Flexibility works both ways - our priorities change to meet new demands and needs, so we have to be willing to learn and grow at the pace the company is moving.

    GE Research - flexible for different ethnic /religious holidays, Permissive Time-Off for vacation, appointments, sick time etc. Flexible hours for start/end time for school children or elderly care, good time off for paternity leave and flexible when they can take it, so not necessarily when the baby is born but can be taken when parents leave and mom is now alone or when mom starts back to work, dad can take several weeks off during the transition.

I have had an incredible experience at my workplace. I came from a place that was not kind to women, was not flexible and was not supportive. I have found a totally different environment at GE and I am proud to be an employee here.
