I think that GE is heading in the right direction for women, but there still is a long way to go.

The flexibility depends on your job, but as an employee in the manufacturing function, I work very long hours with very little flexibility.

I don't feel my time off is counted. I feel like I am expected to accomplish my tasks but if I have something that I must do personally I feel like I can adjust my schedule to accomodate both. I don't feel like I work with a lot of women but I also don't feel like I am the only one.

It's a tough environment, dominated by men, working at the Service Center.

Please demand the pay you are worth to do your job in a frustrating environment. I earned 1/3 of the salary my male counterpart did, while doing more of the work and having more skills. (i know this because the payroll sheet got accidentally filed into a folder i received)

The pay is good. The hours tend to get long. You have ample opportunity for over time but, they tend to expect you to put your family on the back burner for the company, if need be.

Speaking up doesn't get you any where. It only hurts you.

A company as a whole I am not sure about, however at my location in Alabama I would say stay clear. Currently there is a married supervisor who sleeps around and hints at that in order to get in good with the company you need to entertain his affections. Lately, he has one girl in particular who is close to him and she and her friends have openly discussed him and his tendencies for months. You get a feeling that this behavior is a norm and is overlooked by the union and HR. Privacy of ones life is not a priority and is discussed like gossip from middle school. The culture is that if you do not belong to the PC&L office group you are talked about and potentially blackballed from moving up in the company.

Safer environment where one feels they can be promoted fairly without have to spread her legs or sleep with certain supervisors to get a leg up.
