Interesting company, lots of challenge. The only draw back is there is a bias towards selecting male leaders who fit the program mold.

    There is flexibility as a corporate offering but the reality is that most cannot take it.

    Maybe. A lot of focus on women's initiatives but still at the top there are always the pre-determined roles that the men get considered for. The CAS (program) is more "male geared" and so that style gets picked first

While it always comes down to your manager, I do believe that in GE there is a push for equality between men & women. You will always feel that even if your manager doesn't respect you as a woman, the company will back you up, if you choose to fight it!

    flexibility is greatly dependent on the manager - other groups/people have much higher flexibility than I and most of those in my group experience
