Pros

Pays fairly well and the benefits were good, although expensive. Many employees work from home. Vacation plan is generally good.

Cons

Bad systems, lack of support, disconnected management, poor training, slow to fix problems. The expectations are high, but you won't have the tools to get the job done. Just when you figure something out, they will change it and not for the better.

Advice to Management

Treat employees and customers as you would like to be treated.

    Pros

    Company has been bought out, standards are slowly being implemented. Other than health care, benefits meet the standard package offered by most companies.

    Cons

    Management turns over frequently, so standards are not made and maintained. Documentation is poorly maintained, busy work given priority over useful. The DCA is assumed in the wrong when situations arise, instead of first being given the chance to explain. Manager does not manage the Associates, but will force conditions on certain employees at their whim. No training is given equally to all employees, but Associates are still expected to complete tasks assigned. This company is still trying to be ran like a small business, however, it is no longer one, and progress to bring it up to big business standards is very slow.

    Advice to Management

    The manager needs to be a manager instead of a Data Center Engineer given extra duties, as the Engineers have a heavy work load already. Equal and consistant training offered as new hardwar and software is brought in.

    Pros

    It's a job. Steady paycheck Minimal work required. Heavily favors African Americans

    Cons

    Employees rewarded only for length of employment No place for new ideas Innovation is a word in the dictionary. Risk takers and new ideas are mired in bureaucracy. Want to get an idea contributed? Prepare a business case that only a CFO can understand in 200 pages or more. Don't forget the carbon paper. Employees provided with outdated, underpowered technology secured by Gestapo - like security. Pay is nothing special. Senior management concerned about their own stock rewards and won't make any deciions without first consulting their stock culture. Management should be put out to pasture, they retire when they get too I'll and stay past retirement age. Want office supplies? typical request to fulfill takes 3 months for anything other than a paper clip. Did I mention bureacracy? Lots of big titles, no support staff. This results in nothing ever getting done. Marketing is a bad word. Suppression of employee enthusiasm HR incompetent with too much control in org. Ever see an HR chief office next to CEOs? No investment in marketing, new product debelopment,employee training. Employees have no personality.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the roses. Outdated management style. GE is not god. Stop cooking the books before Wall Street wakes up.
