    I worked at GE as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    great career path, training and development. Surrounded by a lot of smart, personable people. Cool to socialize with outside of work and good family environment

    Cons

    Can be bureacratic, difficult to advance outside of normal career path. big, lots of forms and structure that can make you feel boxed in in spite of the great environment and work conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep doing what you're doing and keep hiring great people

    I have been working at GE full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are extremely competitive; this was the highest offer I received out of every Aerospace & Defense company I had an offer from (including Boeing, P&W, and Northrop Grumman).

    Technical education is a huge focus--I came in with my Master's degree, but there are plenty of good programs to get a graduate degree while you work (e.g. you can get paid your full salary while going to school full-time).

    Amount of volunteer events and fundraisers is absolutely ridiculous (in a good way). It's hard to choose what to even go to. (Reposting my review from GE Aviation)

    Cons

    Senior management can feel a bit far away--you will get Q&A sessions with them but only occasionally. It's hard to see the business from their perspective sometimes.

    Covering an engine test will destroy your life and schedule for a week or two.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and explain the business from your viewpoint more often. We won't understand the decisions that you make unless we have the same information as you.

    I have been working at GE full-time

    Pros

    As a corporation, GE treats its employees very well.
    Benefits are good.
    Training is kind of bogus. Very corporate, not that useful.
    They really want their employees to succeed and support that where they can, however, it's manager by manager, as it is in all places.
    People seem very happy here. On occasions people work evenings and weekends, but there is generally good work life balance.

    Cons

    There are not a lot of different positions at the center. It's mostly engineers and UX people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Center could be more organized. People are moved around from project to project without being asked on a frequent basis.
