    Current Employee in Cincinnati, Ohio

    Worst thing is it has been nothing but take aways for the past 5 years

    The flex time is great because you can bank your hours and use them towards vacation later. However, if you resign, not only will you loose the compensation for the hours that you worked, but GE will not allow you to take a vacation or take pay once you have put in your notice. I would not recommend telling GE that you plan to quit until you have sued up your flex hours.

    A fairly average benefits package. 401k offers reasonable matching through Fidelity which has a good array of investments available. Time off is up to 3 weeks from the start which is a huge improvement. Be wary of relocation benefits through Cartus as they come with a 2 year retention agreement and are frequently poorly managed.

    Health Insurance is the worst benefit. Time off is a close second since there is an expectation that you will work around the clock.
