GE – Why Work For Us?

At GE, we are building, curing, moving, and power the world. It goes beyond businesses, brands and infrastructure. With several businesses and operations in over 170 countries, GE employees have an unparalleled foundation on which to build their careers, their abilities and their dreams. We offer our employees challenging, rewarding careers in dynamic businesses. Our people are the architects of the future. We sit in the front seat of history.


From the outset, innovation has been part of GE’s DNA. That means being surrounded by bright, interesting people working together on new and exciting projects. It means trying to find new and better ways of doing things. And it means enjoying a career with extraordinary opportunities and enormous potential.

Leadership & Training

We hire exceptional people and invest in their growth. GE has a culture of continuous learning, thoughtfully designed to enable employees to grow their personal capabilities and reach their full potential. We invest in your education, provide access to experienced colleagues and give you the opportunities to work with intelligent, dedicated people, challenge yourself, and grow.

Global Business

We do business in over 160 countries, giving our employees a literal world of experience. Your opportunities at GE are defined, in part, by the emerging needs of our businesses, customers and clients all around the world, because we go where the opportunities take us. A career at GE offers you access to some of the most exciting and dynamic challenges of your lifetime.


Integrity is an essential component of life at GE. It is how we conduct ourselves and how we do business. It is non-negotiable. While some businesses prize results over ethics, we value both. At GE we believe that how you do something is as important as what you do. We provide you with the training and opportunities to enjoy a successful career you can be proud of, now and for the rest of your life.


GE's approach to citizenship is a full-time commitment with the same goals, strategies and accountabilities that drive any other part of our business. GE applies its long-standing spirit of innovation and unique set of capabilities to take on tough challenges in our communities.




GE strives to provide competitive employee benefits packages in the regions and industries in which we have a presence. Our wide range of employee services, retirement, health and other benefit plans are designed to help eligible employees make the best decisions for themselves, their family, and their lifestyle.

GE offers innovative programs to help our eligible employees gain more value from their healthcare benefits. Through HealthAhead, GE has further committed to improve the health of our employees and their families by creating a 'culture of health' which will deliver onsite and on-line programs, education, tools and services. We have also developed a global, industry-leading site certification program that will recognize excellence in worksite health.

We're confident that the benefits programs we offer our employees match our reputation as a world class employer.


GE believes in developing the talent of new employees with programs designed to give in-depth experience and build skills that are crucial to our long-term success. Our heritage is built on continuous learning, which is why we invest more than $1 billion annually in training and education offerings. In addition to the GE Global Learning Program, employees can take advantage of tuition reimbursement benefits to help improve their skills, grow their career, or get a loan to help pay for their family's higher education.


As a global company with operations in more than 100 countries, diversity isn't merely a noble idea — it's the reflection of our business. Every day, GE works to ensure that all employees, no matter where they are located in the world and no matter where they come from, have an opportunity to contribute and succeed.
