Leadership roles are certainly composed of more men than women, but GE has made a real effort to diversify. Maternity leave changed on 4/1/16 and is now much more generous: up to 12 weeks paid and an additional 4 unpaid. They are also very good about flexible work arrangements and offer wellness rooms at almost all of their sites. This is a review for GE Capital

GE has great flexible policies but the culture of the individual businesses still determines the how many employees take advantage of those policies.

Only been here for about two years. I currently feel like I have a skewed perception based on my site and business (and being in engineering).

My site is small and out in the middle of nowhere. It feels more like a small start up than GE, and while it can be a good thing, it tends to feel quite often like the boys club...

I've worked here for 9 years, and have seen some great examples of women in leadership, but there are not enough. Expectations are high, and to advance and gain recognition, you have to put in a lot of hours. I feel I have been treated fairly and given great opportunities. The company recently made some changes to allow for more paternity leave which seems to be a step in the right direction. This is a review for GE Aviation

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 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.
