    Pros

    great company, huge alot of ups and downs but overtime opportunity so sky is the limit with how much you want to make.

    Cons

    No family time due to the amount of hours that are required by the workload, alot of communication issues between departments.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see a resolution to the communication issues along with more appreciation from our customers who we have contracts with.

    Pros

    GE is a great company for people, who want to challenge themselves and grow professionally. The level of employees there is very high: smart, professional and hard working. The company is so large that there a lot of career opportunities in several different industries.

    Cons

    GE is known for being very numbers focused and it's true. Seems like everything is measured and without solid financial support, it's hard to get a project improved...which means that they struggle with taking risks. They also have the forced employee ranking system, where only 10 top employees can get excellent rating and nice salary increases...which leaves many great employees discouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the forced employee ranking system!

    Pros

    They are very good and fair to me. Obviously I can't speak for all divisions but definitely mine.

    Cons

    Not really anything bad to say. They do want 20 words though so I guess I will put some filler in here.

    Top notch company. You will never be more satisfied working so hard

    Everyone is an A or B+ player so competition is strong ... this is actually good for you!

    Increase EOP

    Pros

    Great people who pull together. A much, much, better company to work for than when run by Jack Welch, who ran a sadistic frat house. Terrific opportunities now for diverse candidates. Company is making tough choices to remain relevant. A good place to work. You live and die by the numbers and accomplishing your commitments.

    Cons

    Benefits, being rolled back at every opportunity. Previously GE was the gold standard. Pensions are no longer provided, retirement health care, LTC insurance, other insurances, vacations for executive level have all been cut back or eliminated. Culture is such that working on vacations is not unusual... Like many companies.

    Pros

    GE values their employees and focuses on employee development! They reward good work and provide opportunities to excel and to succeed. The team I work with is phenomenal and I'm working on leading edge technology. After years of working for horrible bosses and mediocre companies, I've finally found my sweet spot!

    Cons

    Only con is GE has decided to sell my company GE Capital---but, even still, executive management has been transparent and has shown such commitment in keep employees and assisting others in making the necessary transition! Still the best company I've ever worked for and hope I never have to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value your greatest assets...employees! You're doing an excellent job!
