I have been working at GE Appliances & Lighting

Pros

You work with very smart people

You have the opportunity to change jobs within the larger GE family
GE is very respected in business community

Cons

Employee engagement is not taken seriously
Financial measurements rule exclusively
If you make your numbers but don't take care of your team there are no penalties
Leaders are stretched so thin they aren't being setup to be successful

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upgrade the facilities - especially those used by many like Monogram Hall and GCC - they are an embarassment. It will increase morale.
Measure how many employee touch points leaders have every quarter - not just electronic ones - hold them accountable for building relationships with their employees. If they do it right, it will drive the bottom line.

    Former Employee - IT Professional in Louisville, KY
    Former Employee - IT Professional in Louisville, KY

    I worked at GE Appliances & Lighting

    Pros

    Good pay for an IT position in Louisville. There is a company pension (5 yr. vesting period) and good contribution to 401k.

    Cons

    Stone age IT department and management attitude to go with it. Weak benefits (health, vacation). No mobility unless you are in the right management path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT management needs to stop doing what they've always done because that is the way they always done it. Also - IT should support the business not be run as a separate business. Don't just listen - learn and change.
