    It's manager-dependent, not just about the policy. Although policies are flexible, some managers will not deal well with you taking advantage of it... (others are great)

    the main issue at this point is the overall culture and confidence in leadership.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Depends on the manager, the position, and the woman's goals. Not a bad place over all, but not right for everyone.

Over the past few years, I've seen more and more women move up into section lead and other leadership roles. I would say that 30% of my peers as a manager are women. Yes, there is an imbalance of women in the workplace AND in leadership roles, but that's because engineering is a male-dominated industry!

    I can't imagine an employer being more flexible with work hours. We have bi-weekly pay periods, which means we can flex our 80 hours of work over two weeks. We have every other Friday completely off from work. Most managers will flat out tell you that personal commitments hold equal, if not more, priority than your job. If there's a family emergency, go! If you need to come in a bit late to drop your kids off, or leave early to pick them up, do it, as long as you can make up the hours elsewhere.

My voice is heard and actions are taken. It's not taken for granted and I can't express how much I appreciate that.

    Maybe. I believed and still do believe that the leadership does care about diversity and works to move the company forward. However, they had some blind spots that they did not fix until ultimately my exit from the company, followed by another female engineer right after. It broke my heart to have to leave. However, things did change for the better. And think it will continue to get better.

The company offers a very broad range of career opportunities with its diverse portfolio. There are women at the officer and board levels. We understand that our biggest issue with increasing women in leadership positions is the mid-career opt-out, and we're actively working to fix that. I love that GE gives me the opportunity to take on leadership positions outside my regular job such as within the Women's Network and other affinity groups so I can grow my skills. It also allows me to volunteer to serve on the board at my university alma mater as well as recruit there and at other universities. Flexible work arrangments are available, and it's up to me to work out with my manager what makes sense for my role and my personal goals. I feel fulfilled at GE, and I hope to continue on this path for a long time.

Engineering Manager

I've been with the company for more than 10 years in various positions across 4 divisions. In most of them I didn't feel like being a woman was a disadvantage. In fact, my skills at building teams and meeting deadlines put me on a fast promotion path. However, my current organization is an old boys club, where promotions, projects and bonuses are based on popularity contests, not on actual results.

Every time they talk about hiring more women, they frame it as "lowering the bar". I have never worked anywhere with such a low ratio in my engineering department.
