There were no extra consideration to take in to account when I worked there. It was a very nice and friendly working environment.

Great company in every way. It is a male dominated work place from a numbers stand point but that's the nature of the industry.

There are many women in leadership roles and there is promotion for development and furthering education and career however working for the government requires adherence to many policies and there is not room for too much freedom.

    Working for the government has some flexibilities but there are a lot of policies and procedures which limit flexibility.

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. I have been at this company for a few months now. So far, I have found that there will be a lot of travel working for the government which might not be favorable to many women who have families and children. As a young woman looking to start a family, I have turned off by this.

Everyone has a chance to have their voice heard. Policies and flex hours are amazing for work/life balance.

Although there is a large gap between the number of men and woman at GM, I see women rising to various senior roles and feel very supported in my career. Mary Barra is a great role model.

    A woman in my previous group was able to work flex time with a toddler and new baby at home (T-R) and was still a valued contributor.

Unfortunately it is a common evil that exists everywhere. Sometimes I think men fear us.

Only been here for about two years. I currently feel like I have a skewed perception based on my site and business (and being in engineering).

    Maybe. My site is small and out in the middle of nowhere. It feels more like a small start up than GE, and while it can be a good thing, it tends to feel quite often like the boys club...

There has been a big push towards diversity here as of late, and a big effort to bring up the number of technical females working here. Some people are not too happy about the gender preference during the hiring process and I can understand why, but once hired I think everyone is treated fairly equally. I did get a few ignorant questions when I first started but only from a select few older males.
