    Pros

    Benefits are actually REALLY good since GE acquisition if you look at the big picture. Careful. Benefits vary between GE business segments. Here, I am talking about GE Healthcare. The one (big) negative about benefits is listed in the (Cons) below. Some people saw that as a pay cut. That may be so in the short term and considering that alone, but when considering all other standard benefits, I think the OVERALL result is a net increase. For example, API gave 4 weeks PTO total per year. GE gives us 4 weeks PTO, plus 4 weeks sick leave, plus 5 discretionary personal days. That's just standard. Additionally, ON TOP of 401k matching, which is comprabable to what API did, GE gives us a certain percentage of our salary as a retirement contribution... no employee contribution necessary. Life insurance is SUPER cheap and allows you to purchase way more insurance than API allowed. They offer 100% tuition reimbursement for both undergrad and graduate level degrees, and new parents (mothers and fathers) get more than 4 weeks additional PAID time off following the birth of a child on top of all of the standard paid leave everyone gets. If you sit there and factor in ALL the benefits, most people actually got an increase. The problem is only medical coverage (not dental, vision), so people like to whine about that and claim GE benefits suck simply because med. insurance is so expensive. Indeed it is expensive, and that sucks. But again, for most healthy people and even those with mids, ALL benefits considered, I think the gain is positive.

    Acquisitin by GE has given us a lot of resources we haven't been able to take advantage of before. This is still a work in progress. We are still learning HOW to get things done well under the GE umbrella. The problem is cynics who can't see beyond these initial growing pains, or folks who lack the knack for remaining positive, pressing forward, and thinking bigger long term. The complainers are people who can't see past their own job and expect people to do everything for them, using the fact that they are "not leaders" as an excuse.

    Cons

    Healthcare coverage is VERY bad, which I always find ironic when working for a company whose goal is to improve healthcare. Everything is a high deductible plan, and ever since the GEHC acquisition, everyone is paying A LOT of money out of pocket. Even for generic prescription drugs.

    Working for such a big corporation isn't for everybody. So, you have to put up with whiners some times. People whine because they lack the drive to create change, or lack the skills to move onto another company.

    Salaries are just on the average side. There are always exceptions, both ways. But generally speaking you can make decent but not great money here.

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at API Healthcare in May 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process went fairly quickly. I was an employee referral. The HR person interviewed me, she was very relaxed and easy going. Then she advanced me to the next level to interview with the hiring manager. The hiring manager was very forthright and the transparent about the job and some of the growth pains. Then the final interview was with the HR business partner.

    Professional and no drama
