It is a great company and in my time I have seen more women get promoted into leadership positions. Overall management has a flexible work-life balance and culture, but there are occasional managers you stumble upon who are old school and less open to flex policies. Most are great though.

GE adopted permissive leave several years ago. What that means is that there is no accruing of time with a PTO bucket. You take what you need. They are also very flexible with appointments and working from home when needed.

This is a good place to work, if you find the right team. Depending on the sub-business you are in within GE the work/life balance along with respect and equal promotion of women and minorities differs.

It can be tough to break in mid-career, but there are lots of opportunities once you are in. If you are in college, GE has some targeted colleges they recruit for interns, and internships help to pave the way in the co.

    GE has changed to offer a generous maternity/paternity pkg.

    It's a great place to work. More money for a job well done always puts more icing on the cake.

It is a fair place to work and maternity leave is decent, but a lot better internationally.

We do actually have a wonderful maternity & paternity leave. However, I think there is an older culture problem when it comes to time off for family/vacations, etc.

    They pay well starting out, but often times it seems that one has to come from the outside or leave and come back to gain significant raises.

GE is becoming a more progressive place for families, there are many diversity groups, but women in leadership positions is taking longer than one would like.

I think this is a wonderful place to work for women. There are many opportunities for women and being a hispanic woman, I've never felt discriminated against.

In certain functions like HR, you see a lot of women leaders BUT when it comes to the technology area (engineering, product management, sales, etc), there are fewer and fewer women in middle/upper leadership positions
