Be actively involved with your career, be proactive, learn everything you can, be independent as we do not have a culture of administrative support. you become a Jack of all Trades in addition to your role.

    It again depends upon your role and immediate manager. Some are driven by 8-5 must be in the office in a chair vs remote, global digital team collaborations.

    we need better sales processed in place to help make us more efficient.....that would help tremendously with balancing time.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Too concerned about business/job stability to recommend anyone at this time.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Performance development seems none existent unless i'm driving it. We think the GEPD system is working, but it isn;t.

    Have women who are doing higher level work in a lower level job be recognized and promoted to those level jobs. Definitely the good ole boys club still in existence.

GE does a pretty good job of catering to flexibility for its top performers. But for the rest of the 70%- I would say it is very job and manager dependent.

It is a challenging place to work. There is not room to hide. If you work hard and rise to the occassion, you will be rewarded. It is a meritocracy.

If you are looking for flexibility and work life balance this is the place to be, However, women do have to work harder and push harder to rise to leadership roles. Much harder than their male counterparts.

Great benefits and flexibility. You have to want it though. Although many women leadership position, in comparison to others, there is still a gap in the technical side of leadership positions.

    I think flexibility is great, especially when compared to what I hear from other people in other companies. This has been the only company I have worked for, 13 years and counting. With that said, although there is a lot of flexibility, I still believe the expectations of AMOUNT of hours that are required to be successful is still very high.
