GE can increase the number of women in leadership overall however they have programs in place to do that. I have seen great progress over the years and know that will continue.

Its a very diverse company in many aspects, from the employees and culture to the portfolio of businesses and products it owns. It is also a company that has a strong foundation and strong values.

The limits on work life balance is set by the individual. The policies support great balance, however not everyone takes advantage of them.

Great work/life balance, although full flexibility may vary based on leader.

The company offers a very broad range of career opportunities with its diverse portfolio. There are women at the officer and board levels. We understand that our biggest issue with increasing women in leadership positions is the mid-career opt-out, and we're actively working to fix that. I love that GE gives me the opportunity to take on leadership positions outside my regular job such as within the Women's Network and other affinity groups so I can grow my skills. It also allows me to volunteer to serve on the board at my university alma mater as well as recruit there and at other universities. Flexible work arrangments are available, and it's up to me to work out with my manager what makes sense for my role and my personal goals. I feel fulfilled at GE, and I hope to continue on this path for a long time.

GE has done a lot to improve benefits for working parent, including parental leave. Could do better in areas of work-life balance.

In my experience, your day to day work life balance depends on your manager and which business within GE you work in. Certain professions (engineering for example) are also male dominated at the higher leadership levels.

To get ahead here, one needs to make some significant work/life balance sacrifices
