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.

    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.

GE is a great place to work for a women. Truly believe in balance the equation and promote women for leadership roles. It is an intense company so the next step would be to develop more flexibility to improve the work life balance.

This is a great environment for women, however there are some old-school leaders still around who don't get it. Their voices are mostly drown out by the good ones though.

- GE is an amazing place to learn and start your career - Excellent family leave policy that has improved greatly over the years; however, for variable compensation employees, they do a poor job of educating and administiring the policy while on leave.

    Great plan, but poorly administered for variable comp/commercial talent. I spent hours to verify and understand the policy and ensure that I was appropriately paid.

Great parental leave policy. Depending on your position /manager/location, there could be a great deal of flexibility for high performers.
