    Unbelievable Internship Experience

    HRLP Intern (Current Employee)
    Cincinnati, OH

    ProsEnormous amounts of responsibility and extremely challenging projects, but you are also given the support to succeed. Company is filled with tons of brilliant leaders, you never feel like leaders don't deserve their spots. Surprisingly not very political, it's a great culture where everyone is extremely driven, while also being nice and helpful. I could not ask for a better learning experience or place to begin my career.

    ConsWorking in such a matrix heavy environment can be tough. Work-life balance isn't the best.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the simplification efforts, they are working!

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

    Great company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits excellent. Time off policy very good. Able to research and apply for positions throughout the company in all divisions and subsidiaries. Leadership training very good. GE employees are looked at by other companies and recruiters.

    ConsVery high expectations so be ready to put in some long days. In some areas there is management overkill.
    Too much training overlap in some GE business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStay in tune with your co-workers. Remember they work for GE, not you.
