    I worked at GE

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, Challenging roles, excellent way to get industry experience. Stability for those willing to put up with unfamily friendly hours, despite the company's work life balance apparent culture

    Cons

    High pressure, very little real training. An expectation that now you are hired you should just go ahead and train yourself and be accountable of that doesnt work out

    Advice to Management

    Have more respect for the employees and more gratitude for everything that they sacrifice in order to achieve company goals

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers; wealth of resources & training; opportunities for promotion across different businesses.

    Cons

    Compensation is low for the industry; everyone manages up and shows with little concern about the business, clients, and employees; cycling business CEOs and leaders is great for the individual, but gets tiresome if you're staying with one business.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more agile, better and more honest employee communications, please stop management from the "box checking" and yes-man culture.

    Pros

    Looks great on a resume due to its wide-spread brand recognition, lots of opportunity to work on high-pressure projects, great training in too-large bureaucracies and all the issues endemic to large-scale cultural rot from the inside

    Cons

    Executive and Corporate management is self-absorbed with their personal reputation and selfish recognition, not necessarily what is right or good for customers. Corporate truisms like "We are training future leaders" belies strong cultural age bias

    Advice to Management

    Your people are your assets, not your personal reputation. Get your priorities in order
