I have been working at GE full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
Opportunities to learn a lot either on the job or through company sponsored training
Work with smart and ambitious people
Culture of getting things done
You will get a job when you leave there. Employers like seeing candidates with GE experience. Means you can gut it out and deliver.Cons
Fiercely competitive to the point where there is often no trust at all levels of the organization.
Senior leaders are out of touch with staff and are more concerned with making themselves look good, what car they drive and their bonus checks.
No loyalty to the staff. Use them up and throw them out mentality.
Worried about meeting diversity quota and not giving jobs to the most qualified.
Opportunities, rewards and recognition often go to the few hand picked program kids who are not the most worthy or talented.
Tough environment to work.Advice to ManagementAdvice
You have lost touch with what made GE successful. Consider the welfare of the people around you. Employees who feel appreciated will do more.Doesn't RecommendNo opinion of CEO
