There are parts of the organization that have a male-dominated culture and your voice as a woman is not always heard.

Networking and ability to influence others is key for women to grow in this company - technical skills and merit alone won't get you at the top. Need to be smart to handle internal politics. Environment favour more extroverts. Great opportunities to learn.

That the culture around permissive leave and flex time is great. I can do my job nearly anywhere and can take the time I need for family items without question.

This a great company to work for particularly if you are an early-careerist, as the company has leadership development programs and associate development programs that serve as a great source of career trajectory. I would suggest for any woman to consider the programs to build their career foundation and to foster their professional network.

You will feel out of place, its very men driven. Ge has policies in place however its up to the managers to drive it and embrace it. Depending on your manager will determine your experience.

    Maybe. Very demanding, high volume with tons of changes. If you have a family your career maybe limited because you need to be mobile and the options to work from home, flex exist but not embedded in the culture.

Permissive Time Off is great; be prepared to work hours outside of a normal work day...10-12 hour days are not unusual, it's generally expected at least 1-2x a week.

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.
