GE is a great company to work for in terms of flexibility. I feel like it would be a great company if you had a family or planning to have a family. Not all GE businesses allow permissive time but majority of them do. This means you do not have a set number of vacation/sick/personal days. It is unlimited as long as it is approved by your manager.

It is definitely a meritocracy and generally has family-friendly policies in (but this is manager-dependent)

Be bold - speak up and let your voice be heard! Don't wait to be asked to join a team or a project, you need to take the initiative and ownership for your own growth.

    I make my own schedule and am very autonomous in my role. I work from home whenever I want. I have heard this could be different for people in other functions, locations or levels. We have a great vacation policy as well.

    Maybe. As a woman in the Tech industry, I think GE is better than most corporations of it's size and global footprint. It is so large and complex that the pay and promotion opportunities depend on your company, function, location, team and most importantly your manager. It can be inconsistent. I've had good experiences in some areas and bad in others and I've heard lots of stories both ways. There is a public initiative to 'balance the equation' endorsed by the highest level. Hopefully they keep up the momentum. I work with a lot of wonderful smart women. We have fun at work everyday and the flexibility of working here is amazing. On the flip side, I tend to see more men getting high visibility projects and promotions on other teams.

not a lot is written down in terms of flexibility but a lot is possible; it really depends on your manager and team
