I worked at GEH for 5 years. While some managers were inclusive and supportive, the only successful women were the ones who made the company their life. Working 70-80 hour weeks, moving all over the country for a position. I took the full maternity leave I was entitled to and felt that many were disappointed with me for it. My boss came back after 4 weeks. Review for GE Healthcare

I've worked here for 7 years and in several different sub-businesses. Generally, the industrial businesses have way fewer women than businesses like healthcare or capital. Also, women are typically in HR or communications roles in those businesses. I have been in countless meetings with 10 or more people (sales, engineering, IT) and I was the only female. There is a strong Women's Network that puts on programs. There have been recent changes & promotions at the very top level of the company and there are a couple of women who are now CEOs of sub-businesses. Perhaps that will make some positive impact.

    The culture can be a very "traditional"/"masculine". I have seen women vilified for being tough or "bossy". It's a big company so there is opportunity to change jobs once you're in. Experience is highly dictated by your manager/team. The maternity policy, while better now than it was just a couple years ago, is not comparable to other high-tech companies. If GE wants to compete for talent in this arena, they will need to upgrade.

Men and women are treated equally. While the female representation isn't high in all fields, the company is striving to improve diversity through recruiting and retention initiatives. I took my full maternity time & had the full support of my manager and team.

The company is diverse and does treat women fairly. Be aware the competition and expectations are high. You will be working extra hours and the life work balance is off. Weekends and evenings happen often. Review for GE Aviation

I´ve worked at GE for 5 years and it´s a great experience, the benefits for employees are really good and the flexibility is incredible! I think is one of the best company for women!

I generally believe women are treated fairly, but it is a male dominated culture and I'm unclear on how new review systems will impact career progression for women.

Women going through leadership programs or hired into leadership roles can have a fulfilling career. All others will need to find outside opportunities to advance. Work/Life balance depends upon whom one reports to.

I've worked here for over 10 years, and have had great success. My value is not based on my gender, but rather the role I play for our business. I can't say for myself, or any colleagues that we've been overlooked due to our gender. Although I think we may make slightly less.

It feels like a gender balanced environment, and in my experience, support of working moms. I am not one myself, so I can't say for sure.

I've worked here for almost a decade and I think it is hard to give an answer to this question that would apply to all GE businesses. They all have their own culture. It seems like men advance more quickly than women (mostly because they do). The Women's Network has never seemed like it benefits anyone to me. Like others said... Boy's Club.
