Interesting company, lots of challenge. The only draw back is there is a bias towards selecting male leaders who fit the program mold.

    There is flexibility as a corporate offering but the reality is that most cannot take it.

  • Recommend to Women?

    A lot of focus on women's initiatives but still at the top there are always the pre-determined roles that the men get considered for. The CAS (program) is more "male geared" and so that style gets picked first

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Promote more women into leadership positions

Depending on the job, GE offers great flexibility where it's permitted. Overall, it's an ethical that values work-life balance organization

While it always comes down to your manager, I do believe that in GE there is a push for equality between men & women. You will always feel that even if your manager doesn't respect you as a woman, the company will back you up, if you choose to fight it!

    flexibility is greatly dependent on the manager - other groups/people have much higher flexibility than I and most of those in my group experience

Not every position can offer the same daily schedule flexibility or hours per week (reduced hours/part-time), but many can.

GE's Leadership through Storytelling Initiative by Cate Gutowski has changed my life, it was the most transformative training I've ever done in my entire career. Programs like this provide connection, inspiration and empower us all.
