    Little consideration of the employee that has the knowledge of what's going on.

    I have been working at GE

    Pros

    local, decent pay, people are ok

    Cons

    I have worked for GE in 4 different states, and their M.O. is always the same...they take into consideration "newbies" straight out of college with no experience, long before they give consideration to the employees that have made them a business in the past. Likewise, when times get a little tough on their books, they, without advance notice, chop the obvious....the higher-paid contractors, who are, most likely, the ones that made their product work to begin with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the people (regardless of direct-hire or contractor) that contributes the most to your program, before you simply cut back on the higher-paid people. Getting rid of people who know what's going on, and substituting a cheaper south-of-the-border employee is NOT the answer to making money.

    I worked at GE

    Pros

    Word class tools and training- will take you very far. Good Compensation.

    Cons

    Bad benefits. Extremely cutthroat. No team environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    High level management needs to see what happens at the lower levels. It's managed like th1950's. Needs to grow and change with the millennium.

    Former Employee - Human Resources Manager in Milwaukee, WI

    I worked at GE full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Variety of projects at any one time, extreme rigor and process orientation, great colleagues (really smart people) and global growth opportunities, strong affinity group presence and mentor opportunities, leadership development programs are top-notch.

    Cons

    Political maneuvering was prevalent, weak performance management (slow to act on mediocrity, at least in my function), huge company (difficult to feel like you have an influential voice), many actively disengaged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to get to know employees a little better, review market compensation for HR, don't reward people who elbow their way to the top in spite of others (very limited teamwork and collaboration)
