    Continuously Challenging

    IT Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Belleville, MI

    ProsLots of opportunity for exposure to the cutting edge technology. Full ownership of program or projects.

    ConsBecause of the enormity of the organization, it is sometimes difficult to implement major changes and improvements in processes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpportunities for promotions may be somewhat limited.

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

    Good experience

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    Stamford, CT

    ProsGreat brand and reputation. Excellent training programs. High quality people throughout the organization. Even if GE is not for you long-term, it's a great stepping stone to other opportunities.

    ConsBureaucracy, which would be virtually unavoidable in a company of this size. GE handles it pretty well though, all things considered.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJunior employees are eager to make a meaningful contribution and would benefit from more opportunities to do so.

    ITLP at GE

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosexposure to leadership, training, good pay

    Consbig company so there is a lot of bureaucracy, locations could be better

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen hiring/interviewing, let prospective candidates know about the work locations that they'll likely work in and where most of the jobs will be off-program. Some assignment leaders are better than others and having a good assignment leader makes all the difference if a rotation ends up being a good one or not. The screening process to make sure assignment leaders are good enough should be more rigorous.

    Potential for Extra-Ordinary growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Ramon, CA

    ProsI have been working at GE in San Ramon for over a year and have witnessed unprecedented growth. While most of the product work is in the build phase, one can see the imminent monetization phase materializing pretty soon. It will the place the company in an unimaginable growth trajectory. You would want to be a part of this explosion - work on state of the art technology, solve problems at an amazing scale and get rewarded. Great benefits to go with it

    ConsNo upside for the employee in growth

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company should follow the west coast trend and allow employees who contribute to this growth, benefit from it - introduce RSUs.

    Good company and department. Benefits are good.

    SPB: Manager (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsYou will be recognized for good work and also for not so good work. You do need to perform to do well as General Electric.

    ConsFairly old school management style; focus on short term goals perhaps in spite of long term success. Systems could use some updating.
