If you like to challenge yourself working on fascinating problems that matter, this is the place for you. GE is loaded with some of the best and brightest minds in the world. Here you can champion an idea and take it all the way to market if you wish, or become a world expert in the area of your choosing. Be prepared to work hard, this is an aggressive "type A" workplace, and you will reap the benefits if you can hang with the pack.Cons
The culture can be a bit conceded and entitled (We are GE, look how great we are, people love us for our name). With all the great things, GE is a large company and weighs "risk" very seriously; this can make the company feel slow and bureaucratic, but if you understand the machine you are working in, the behavior makes sense.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep up the good work, you don't stay one of America's top companies for decades without knowing what you are doing. The corporate education programs are the best I have ever seen... Keep making them available to all employees. Lastly, remember who you are, make sure the corporate strategies work for the market you are in by listening to the experts in those businesses.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied online. The process took 5 months - interviewed at GE.Interview Details
Initially contacted by company recruiter, who then set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. Next step was an onsite all day interview at the corporate headquarters with multiple HR people. After successfully passing that portion of the interview I had another onsite all day interview at the plant location, where the actual opening was. This interview was with HR, the plant manager, operations managers and I met with the union officials. Both all day interviews were very casual and laid back. I was asked specific questions but there didn't seem to be a real format.Interview Questions
