They've been voted as one of the top 5 companies in the world for women. Their flexibility allows support of school hours for families.

    I think we have good policies in place in theory but in practice it's still very dependent on your manager.

  • Recommend to Women?

    A great place if you have the right boss and a sponsor.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Enable more flexibility in where global roles are located.

It's a great place to work. GE does well at promoting women in management. However, there is a huge discrepancy in the technical track where I am often the only woman in a meeting (>95% time). That may be due to limited number of women in the technical talent pool. However, I've never felt I am treated differently because I am a woman.

    Very flexible hours to support family. . .as long as you get the work done. There are good tools to allow work out of the office so that you can get work done even if you can't be in the office. This is was very helpful when I needed to deal with elderly parents recently, as well as when I had a young child at home.

Like any large company, it helps to build relationships with leaders who will advocate for you and to seek mentors familiar with the organization. Otherwise, with the change in strategic focus from manufacturer to digital industrial, you risk getting lost in the constant shuffling of resources and projects.
