    I worked at GE as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good Co-Op Compensation
    - Good Location
    - Accessible Executive Team
    - Good Work-Life balance (if you're a co-op and it's against policy for you to bring your work home with you, that is)

    Cons

    - If you are looking for a 'Financial Management Program,' this is not it. You will be doing accounting the entirety of your stay here
    - Skeletal Management Structure
    - Completely mindless grunt work
    - I was paired with the world's worst supervisor, obviously not reflective of all experiences

    Advice to Management

    360 feedback. Allow your co-ops to evaluate their management, and eliminate positions where co-ops are frequently unable to succeed.

    Pros

    I believe GE is s company with integrity

    Cons

    my experience with management revealed a complete lack of integrity. Big hype with no support. I received few hours of training, but I had questions that they glossed over by saying no one ever asked that. And I just throw you to the wolves, sink or swim. They are an employee mill, constantly hiring and blowing through employees hoping to get a few sales out of them before they leave.
    I brought in a couple large accounts that they didn't want to even try because it required some work on their part

    Advice to Management

    Greater oversight of managers

    Pros

    Recruiters were great to work with.
    Great benefits
    Large hiring bonus

    Cons

    The job I was recruited to do went away due to internal reorganization less than 6 months after I started. GE really recruited me hard and I left a company where I was highly successful then pulled the rug out from under me. When the reorganization happened my boss essentially said "you'll figure something out" before heading off to his new assignment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your promises.

    Pros

    Interesting work and I liked the people.

    Cons

    I know it is not fair to judge a company the size of GE by the small part I saw. However, I will never work for GE again.

    I was in their complex in Louisville, KY. My office was next to an assembly line. The noise was horrific. The place was also filthy dirty. We all had respiratory issues due to the conditions. Was also told by maintenance that only about 40% of the building's ventilation system was working.

    I went up stairs to escape these conditions only to find the dust was just as bad plus the carpets were dirty., moldy, and infested with vermin. At least it was quiet.

    I left after 11 months because I could not do my job in that environment

    Advice to Management

    Spend some money improving working conditions. You could save some on attempting to cool the place by painting the roofs white. At least it wouldn't be so bloody hot in the summer
