They've been voted as one of the top 5 companies in the world for women. Their flexibility allows support of school hours for families.

It is a good company, with fantastic values. And you will learn a lot and be pushed (in a good way to develop). They incent leadership to develop and promote their people. Compensation (especially promotional compensation once you are in the company) is highly constricted with red tape. So push hard for what you think you deserve before you walk in the door. They WILL pay it, but you won't get much once you are an orange apron.

Flexibility was all about where you were and what you could negotiate for yourself. I was lucky that I was in a highly vital, critical leadership position. Because I had proved my value I essentially came in when I wanted and left when I wanted. I believe firmly in a 40 hour week unless there is an emergency, so I was able to also offer this to my direct and indirect reports.

Inequality is a part of the culture, and while it's changing, it's a slow change. Women are in prominent leadership positions, and are typically respected, however there are enough good 'ol boys to constantly question yourself. I would say the company is more age-gender in-equal than gender specifically. There are a good number of late 40s to early 60s men that display hostility to young, assertive women. That being said, it's a great experience to understand better how to navigate this fact of life.

GE offers great flexibility and parental leave plans. But, if you don't want to work all the time, then you need to set strong boundaries on your workload.

Maternity leave plans have further improved since I took maternity leave. Now 12-14 weeks for both moms and dads.

Ask for higher salary for your first job at GE. Once that number is set they will only give you 2-5% increase regarless of position or any improvements you have done. In my last role I received my Black Belt and my PMP (Project Management Professional) certificates and it did not mean anything.

It depends on your manager. My last manager tied me to my desk eventhough I have been in the workforce since 1994. My current manager does not care where, how and when I do my job as long as it is done.
Maybe. As a last resource.

Good benefits like paid parental leave but hours can be long. Not a great deal of diversity.

there was no paternity leave offered when i had kids. Also, we did not have permissive leave which might have allowed more time that was paid.

I was physically and verbally assaulted by a coworker. I reported it to my manager who did absolutely nothing. When I saw him physically and verbally threaten another coworker in much the same fashion, I reported it to HR. The HR rep told me he has a hearing problem and that "I misinterpreted the situation." They did not at any point offer to move the offender to a desk away from mine, nor was he reprimanded by management and it was not made to see any consequences for repeatedly verbally and physically threatening female employees. The Vice President of my vertical told me "if you don't like it, you can quit." So that is what I did. Stay away.
