    Annual revenue derived from diversified businesses in numerous markets thereby minimizing risk.

    Stock performance has been abysmal since late 2000 and is currently trading down 57% vs late 2000.

    I have been working at GE full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible, good technological information, average salary, good benefit package.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy, too many managers, too much ficus on internal development, rather than build solid customer relationship. Focus on developing device technology to meet industry standard is not very strong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Client or customer focus is key to sustainability.

    Pros

    great people; very smart, highly self motivated & technical with deep expertise who are very professional; no small office gossip; office setting is low stress, no micromanagement

    Cons

    trying to keep tabs of who the company leaders/ executives are at the time... they seem to change annually; leadership seems out of touch with the foot soldiers sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't let the pursuit of $ blind you into letting go of highly productive, good people.
