GE Global Research – Why Work For Us?

GE works on things that matter. The best people and the best technologies take on the toughest challenges. Finding solutions in energy, health and home, transportation and finance. Building, powering, moving and curing the world. Not just imagining. Doing. GE works.


For our scientists, inspiration can come from a rock or a sunset or a supercomputer. But mostly it comes from our dream of what the future can be. A world that’s cleaner, greener, more efficient, more intelligent and more connected, where people have greater access to essentials like energy, water and healthcare. A better world.


GE Global Research is the cornerstone of GE technology. We’ve been honored to produce incredible breakthroughs for GE’s businesses for more than a century. And today, our researchers are creating the future of technology from all corners of the world, working on innovations in a collaborative research and open-idea environment, with opportunities to grow professionally and help make the world a better place.



The technical career path at GE Global Research guides scientists’ and engineers’ individual development. Its rich experiences and mentorship enable researchers to deliver novel solutions that have real impact for GE’s customers. Building a continuum of technology capability, the program begins with roles that focus on technologies and solutions for today, and expand to roles that develop technologies and strategies for tomorrow. Each role is characterized by increasing levels of proficiency in expertise, innovation, impact and interaction. Career growth is dependent upon the development of these competencies over time, leveraging education, experiences, training, mentoring and coaching. The technical career path provides a framework for engineers, scientists, managers, project leaders and business leaders to drive and support the career development of each employee, which is critical to the present and future success of GE Global Research.

We maintain strong ties to institutions of higher education around the world and welcome the curiosity and passion students bring to GE’s research operations. Through internships for promising graduate and undergraduate students, the Edison Engineering Development Program for recent graduates, and the GE Software Leadership Program, we incorporate new scientists into our work in ways that encourage collaboration and real-life contributions to science and technology.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at GE Global Research (Schenectady, NY) in June 2015.


    I was contacted by the HR over the phone to set up a time for phone interview. The phone interview was easy and conducted by two employees. One being my supervisor and other from HR. The phone interview took about 30 mins. After the phone interview, I was called for an on-site interview. All the travel and hotel instructions were emailed to me. There were 4 interviews conducted on this day. Two interviews by Manager and two by the Head of Department.
