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.

    Maybe. 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).

    Maybe. 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.

Good benefits, room for growth, personal development opportunities, not as many women leaders with families as I would like to see.

GE benefits such as "Permissive Approach" to paid time off and there is capability to work remote with flexible schedules. The paid parental/maternity leave is great, especially for new mothers.

    Maybe. This is a review for PII Pipeline Solutions. I would recommend GE, but not PII Pipeline Solutions (a GE joint venture company). The company was acquired by GE 7 years ago and there are employees here that don't work the "GE way". There is a lack of professionalism. Managers and HR are don't practice accountability. On the plus side, the site implements all of the great GE benefits such as "Permissive Approach" to paid time off and there is capability to work remote with flexible schedules. The paid parental/maternity leave is great, especially for new mothers.

Most managers are willing to work with your schedule and be flexable. Being open and honest with them really helps. As long as you are performing at your best and getting your work done, they will work with you.

It's a meritocracy, do better then the other person and make sure you market yourself and you can go pretty far. There are still 'things' you'll run into that might become roadblocks - that's where you need to have a great network.

There is a great network of women at this company, but in looking at the Senior Leadership ranks it is filled with white males.
