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.

    Maybe. 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.

    Maybe. 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.

Do not judge the company by the actions of one manager. Managers come and go and some are worse than others in regards to gender, flex time and family life. Working with HR to correct issues is the way to go.

    The company boasts having a flexible work schedule, but I find that a lot of times that is simply not the case. For example after putting in your 40hour week I have had to spend additional hours on a Saturday doing testing that was mandated by a manager. Actions and words do not always align.

    I will be taking my remaining 4 weeks throughout the first year.

    Maybe. Equality is really based upon the hiring manager, it does not seem to be company wide. So depending upon the department I would be cautious about suggesting other women apply.

Be yourself : it is really easy to fee yourself forced to adopt some behavior and mindset to adapt in a new environment. In GE the only recommended way to pursue some carreer is to stick to your value and be flexible on customer goal only.

    Flexibility really depends from your management. My last manager was really inflexible on time management and face time. But it is really unusual inside GE to have such behavior.

Overall, good. It is not the worst but could be more flexible with work from home options for more people.
