    I have been working at GE Aviation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This large company is working to lean out their processes and empower employees to move faster, making changes. Opportunities for work-life balance in the right roles. Growing business with lots of opportunities. Overall, a great place to work with many diverse roles and opportunities to challenge yourself.

    Cons

    Benefits are not the most competitive. Annual raises and incentives are not comparable to hi-tek industries. Most of the main office buildings on HQ campus are outdated, though many are going through remodeling.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the go fast and stay lean initiative. Leadership could put SEB overall metrics under the microscope and make sure they are driving right behaviors. I have seen EB and SEB's make decisions which are not good for the business, to benefit their metric. Generally, employees want to do the right thing which means making sure the metrics are driving the right behaviors.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GE Aviation (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    Two 30 minute interviews-one with HR and one with program leads. The interview with HR was a typical GE interview, all behavioral based questions. The second however, was with the three program leads. One barley stayed awake. The executive interviewer was on his phone half of the interview and asked inappropriate, illegal, and (possibly) discriminatory questions. The last was clearly uncomfortable with what her boss was asking me but went along anyway. I loved the people I worked with and the culture of GE but that interview went against everything GE stands for and made me question why these people are in charge of selecting candidates.
