Whilst GE's current drive to improve the gender gap in technical roles, this is not being replicated across the entire organisation or up to board level. Feels a bit like talking the talk without walking the walk. Low levels of females in middle management also.

    Whilst flexible working policies exist, they are very much dependent on manager's discretion and biased towards mothers, and not women without children ie it's still discriminatory.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Low levels of women in senior management.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Promote more women into leadership positions

Great parental leave benefits and support. Strong professional women's network with resources to mentors.

Working for this company has been better for me and my family. I am not made to feel guilty about picking up a sick kid from daycare or taking an afternoon off to attend women's networking event. My boss has repeated multiple times that family comes first. I feel that my company believes that if our home lives are good, we will excell more at work.

    From what I have heard (I am relatively new to the company) my department seems to be more flexible than some other departments. It works out great for me, but now I have to think about the flexibility if I want to advance my career and move to a different department, because it doesn't seem to be the same everywhere in the company.

Policies are good, but overall tone and mood of the company is not. With the re-orgs, synergies, and cost outs, employees are left consistently wondering if they'll have a job.

    Flexible with hours and leave. Not flexible with location. Often, off-hour flexibility is entirely dependent on the manager.

  • Recommend to Women?

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Good from a benefits perspective. However, leadership as a whole is disorganized and inconsistent.

GE is very diversified as far as gender, culture, sexual orientation. I have been working remotely for the past 11 years.

GE cares about gender diversity and is a good employer so I would recommend but I would also recommend that people spend the time to understand the values and leadership style of any particular manager and organization.

    I think the company has good flexible policy but when I speak to women deeper in the ranks it seems to become more manager specific
