Chicago is home to GE Transportation's global headquarters located in the downtown area. Part of the commitment to Illinois includes GE Transportation's active participation in the Get Skills to Work initiative, a coalition aimed at closing the skills gap and specifically, to supporting veterans as they transition to careers in advanced manufacturing. A recently announced partnership will help the state’s 76,000-plus new veterans pursue and fill open advanced manufacturing jobs by providing training to gain skills certifications.
GE is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We offer a competitive salary, outstanding benefits and the professional advantages of an environment that supports our employees' development and recognizes their achievements. GE fosters an inclusive environment where employees have the opportunity to succeed and diversity is embraced as a competitive advantage in the marketplace. The passion that our people bring to their work extends to their private worlds, and GE encourages a healthy balance between the two. GE values education and is dedicated to providing the tools and training for our employees' professional development.
Operating with Integrety
How we deliver results is as important as the results themselves. GE seeks to lead in workplace and marketplace integrity by respecting the human rights of everyone touched by our business, and by enforcing legal and financial compliance.
These commitments are detailed in our integrity policy, The Spirit & The Letter, which every employee supports with a signed pledge. They are further enabled by our ombudsperson process, which encourages any employee to report integrity concerns without fear of reprisal.
Work and Life Balance
Naturally, the passion that our people bring to their work extends to their own private worlds, and GE is committed to enabling a healthy balance between the two. GE encourages our people to meet their work commitments while balancing their own life responsibilities.
To support this balance, flexible work arrangements are an integral part of the way we conduct business. The Company also offers many programs and resources to support employees including financial management, family counseling and more.
