it's great place for women to work at, as long as you are professional just like the men. whenever you have special situations, remember to communicate in advance, you will most probably get help!

This is a review for GE Energy Connections. It's great to work in GE, they promote equality between women and men and they do a lot of efforts to achieve this.

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?

    Maybe. 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!
