Does General Electric Have Good Work-Life Balance and Flexibility?
  • "Specially in the Latino American Region there are no women in HIGH LEVEL leadership positions, And there is no mentoring for us to get there" - Anonymous-12873
  • "Flexibility really depends from your management. My last manager was really inflexible on time management and face time. But it is really unusual inside GE to have such behavior." - anon3234
  • "The company boasts having a flexible work schedule, but I find that a lot of times that is simply not the case. For example after putting in your 40hour week I have had to spend additional hours on a Saturday doing testing that was mandated by a manager. Actions and words do not always align." - hockeygirl1018
  • "I was told there was no negotiation for my pay for my position, and I was told to ONLY apply to the lower level lead position as it would "mess up the system" if I applied for the Sr. Training Manager role that is an excellent fit with my career level of 17 years. Also, I thought it was dirty, that there were 2 of the exact same JOBS, 1 only ran internally same EXACT words, only thing different was the education. Internal job said "Masters" paying 96-116k, and the external that I could apply for said "Bachelor" paying 90k. I have a Master's degree, why am I not paid for that? I have proof of this." - hopeful46
  • "The corporation level stats would probably differ from our interpretations in the trenches. The Boss I have today is one of the best I've had in my 30 years. It's nice also, that she's a woman!" - Anonymous-14013
