    Pros

    expected to perform to a high standard, everyone is smarter than you so you learn a lot and you're challenged to keep improving and growing

    Cons

    each business unit has its own sub-culture so sometimes those are tougher to survive in especially if the industry is going through a tough cycle or it's not as mature as some of the others

    Advice to Management

    continue to move faster on the culture changing things you're trying to do -- invest in your SPB and LPB now more than ever

    Pros

    GE has evolved! It has grown from a 'corporate company' to a culture that encourages individual thinking. I have never worked at a company like GE where you are rewarded for your accomplishments and work. GE is evolving their culture to be a modern company and to build an environment where I can have a great work/life balance and therefore bring my best 'self' to work.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that working in a large company you do have to figure who you are and where your career should go. It has to be a personal decision and push. GE will help but you have to be driven in a big company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive evolution we are seeing!

    Pros

    Great town. Minutes from the beach and 2 hrs south of Raleigh, NC. Great management and the teams are very helpful.

    Cons

    Seems to be a bit of clique-ish. They have their circle of engineers they know and trust and then there is all the rest trying to get in the "inner circle".

    Advice to Management

    Allow all engineers to learn more about the various aspects involved on their team and not just........."Bill is our best engineer at this so he does it for all the projects."

    Have to be on top of your trade all the time. You go down on ratings if you even take a bit of a breather
