    I have been working at GE Power & Water full-time (more than 5 years)


    Fast paced work. You are expected to hit the ground running. For a young engineer that is self driven, this can be a great experience. Some nice perks like paternity leave, vacation, and a good amount of sick days. A lot great people to work with.


    Constant scope changes on projects. Business case for some projects seem like they lack some crucial details. Pay and raises could be better, although it seems like it is improving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to employees. Allow engineers that are working on a project to understand the business case and assumptions of the project in order to fully buy into the work. Core expertise for individuals should be considered a priority.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at GE Power & Water.

    Interview Details

    Long hiring process with months between steps. I was first contacted for a phone interview with the hiring manager a month after I applied to the position. It was a 30 minute interview with basic questions about my past experience, why I wanted the job, and information about the position. Right off the bat I wasn't so interested because the hiring manager was across the country from where I'd be working. I then didn't hear back until 2 months later from a corporate recruiter also across the country who wanted to talk for a second phone interview and if that went well then an in person interview. I declined because by this time I had accepted another offer with a company with a timely process. I understand they are a large company but I feel they can easily lose a lot of talent with their unorganized and slow process. I definitely wouldn't omit them for a job in the future, I just couldn't wait around on them when I had another amazing offer waiting.
