    Many, many benefits are offered however the one like the best is the ability to work from home and flexible hours allow me to manage my own work/life balance.

    Former FP&A Manager in Atlanta, Georgia

    The benefits at GE use to be absolutely amazing, but then they cut the pension vesting all together and the healthcare plan became a high deductible plan focused on preventative care. 401k matching was very good. Vacation time was reasonable. Believe there were a lot of other opportunities / resources for employees as the company is so large, but never used them.
