The ability to flex across functions, roles, locations or just stay in the same place is unique. For all stages of life there is a role for you.

Some parts of the business are more accepting of women than others. In some of the services and manufacturing spaces, it is still very much a "man's world." However, the Company is making strides all the time to make improvements and encourage diversity.

GE has been a great place to work for my first internship experience! GE is also doing a great job of continuing to hire women in engineering 4 of the 5 people on co-op with me are women which is usually unheard of!

Opportunity to work with very smart, driven and creative people on cutting-edge work balanced against high-degree of politics and hierarchial decision-making that does not foster transparency with regard to information and professional development.

There are pockets of wonderful! It really does matter who you work for regarding flexibiity and family friendly policies. The highest levels of the company are still an "old boys club".

    I adopted my child and at the time there was no paid leave for adoptive parents. This has thankfully changed!!

GE has provided an incredible career for me spanning multiple internal businesses (GE Aviation, GE Power, and GE Digital). The ability to transition to new positions has allowed me to continue to improve my business & technical skills and still have a consistent job with the same employer. They believe in growing all of their employees skillsets and have continued to invest in me with continuous training programs.

The sky is the limit. With locations and positions worldwide opportunities abound for talented, motivated individuals. You will be challenged to your limit. The culture supports flexible work arrangements such as part-time, working from home, non-standard work schedules, and transitional work following maternity. Leaders tend to be capable and bright; mentors and countless networks are available. The work environment is intense with a direct correlation between results and recognition.

Entry level training programs a great and a career accelerator. After that you are completely dependent on your manager for support/promotion. Once you get higher in ranks, pay differences/promotional opportunities are more limited for women.

    Policy is getting better, but ability to use it still lacking. Perception/reality that using full amount will hurt your career is still there.

    Maybe. Entry level opportunities are great learning experiences. Mid-career, depends on your manager.
