    Manufacturer of Medical Equipment

    Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee)
    Madison, WI

    ProsThe process and the products mostly top of the line. The set up on the production floor is very advance. Very clean work environment. Good place to learn new stuff. Got a lot of experience in lean.

    ConsExtremely structured company with virtually no flexibility in what you can do. A lot of politics and you have to play the game if you want to stay employed. Big focus on outsourcing and moving production out the country. Low job security.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould promote people base on their performance, skills level, expertise, not based on the notion who can play politics better and who can support top management regardless the outcome.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good to average place for a global company experience

    Product Surveillance Engineer (Current Employee)
    Waukesha, WI

    ProsGood career growth opportunities. GE is not very orthodox from career perspectives. If you are striving fro growth, this is the place. You may jump from function to function, from one business segment to other, or definitely you may go a step up the ladder.

    ConsWork-life balance is a major thing to consider. You may be spending some extra hours or working from home during your vacation.

    Standard of benefits have reduced over years. The health insurance that GE provides is totally messed up. You will end up paying almost everything out of your pocket with high deductibles.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not the Best Company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits were good. Salary was good. Hours were good

    ConsToo big of a company. No loyalty to their hard working employees. Lay off abound.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare more about your employees than the bottom line.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Just another Corporate giant

    IT Lead Technologist (Current Employee)
    Wauwatosa, WI

    ProsHuge projects, large teams, and very impactful work. Tons of scale and negotiating power when working with vendors. The top 10% of the employees are extremely sharp people.

    ConsVery conservative, very old school. Risk averse. Office culture is highly competitive and cut throat. Management is mediocre at best. Bottom 50% of employees/contractors are lazy and unskilled. GE is a manufacturing company at heart and tries to apply manufacturing principles to other departments, only making things worse.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSet clear direction, bring the talent in-house instead of outsourcing to the lowest bidder, and stay focused on the customers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Be productive, contribute, and solve problems so they keep you around.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits, healthcare, 401K, time off, ability to apply/transfer for a job at any GE facility in the world.

    ConsJob security is always in question. They can sell a company or buy and move a company in order to consolidate and cut costs which seems to be what they are all about, the bottom line. Too many mid-level managers that are off-site too.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't dictate from afar, talk to local management before making drastic changes.

    Electrical Engineer

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsReally great technology, Interesting lectures and information sessions. Employee discounts on GE appliances. Lots of great people work there. If you survive the contract phase you will have a full time job. The cafeteria is nice but overpriced and the gym on campus is very nice.

    ConsYou have a choice between working and being promoted or having a life. Middle management plays favorites and constantly pits employees against each other. They do not train you very much at all. Often times they will sit you in front of a new piece of equipment or software and tell you to fix it. The FDA buries you in annoying, cumbersome, irritating paperwork. The layoffs are frequent I have been there over three years and there have been 7 layoffs all of them small but unnerving. Upper management is nice to your face but utterly ruthless and care about nothing but money. No bonuses until you make it to upper management. Salaries are mid to lower end of the spectrum. There are a lot of people so they care less about you hanging around. They treat their contractors like dirt.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCongrats you made it now get over yourselves. Stop trying to squeeze money out of things that cannot be squeezed anymore. if you refuse to hire anyone to replace those who left than expect things to be late. Train your employees and you might see happier less frustrated people.

    Evolving to simplify ability to act while easing access to large company resources and expertise.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe quality of the people. In my experience, free of 'deadwood.' Great training opportunities and attention to career path. Clear vision.

    ConsCulture of on-call 24/7 for work and issues that aren't urgent. No on-boarding provided for mid-career employees new to GE, which really hurts productivity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExcellent vision, clearly communicated. Stay conservative on budget, but give the product development teams enough to achieve that vision in time to be competitive. You aren't getting the benefit of the fresh perspective outsiders can bring. Help them to hit the ground running. The turnover you currently have among this group has got to cost more then would an on-boarding program.

    bureaucracy can be frustrating

    Global Product Manager (Current Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    ProsInteresting technology and well respected in the industry

    ConsBudgets are always tight and limiting

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more forward thinking and less reactive

    Simplification

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsStrong Company. Great Pay. Great benefits. Lots of room to move to other departments. A clinical background does not hinder you you if you want to step out of that roll and move into another.

    ConsMatrix structure is mind numbing. Close minded european engineers. HQ is in France. Simplification. Only want to hear the good.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour concept of simplification has gone astray. For those who do not work in the US home office it is a very difficult adjustment period for those not used to a company of that size. If i hadn't had a friend on the inside, i would have never gotten anything done and would have taken 10 emails to find out who i needed to confide in to resolve an issue. I started, a day and a half orientation of how to use the Secure system, then cut loose. My practical working knowledge of how a hospital environment works was often ignored. Your European engineers are too busy trying no to be "ME Too". Meaning they develop Software that has no valid use in. Developing a product because you can, does not mean you should. You are wasting money chasing the rabbit. You should be working on the core reason why you are #3. The Hardware. That is why you are loosing. I've worked for small, medium, now large companies. The larger you are, the more out of touch you are with what the client demand. To innovate, you have to listen.
