Pros

-young co-op crowd makes for potential opportunity to team assignments

Cons

-lack of teaming initiatives led to slight lack of motivation
-office atmosphere and data tracking systems from 1990 and older
-behind a computer more than i'd like

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at GE Aviation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Structured career advancement
    - Globally recognized company name
    - Incredible technology potential
    - Strong source of work groups, especially diversity-targeted

    Cons

    - No cross-over between business units. This is a huge area for potential improvement. Interns are frequently with a business for geographic reasons. But all that experience is worthless if applying to a different business unit (example, trying to transition from Aviation to Healthcare)
    - Aviation manufacturing sites are very varied in technology and resources available. The shop floor environment can be toxic at times, as an intern who is told regularly by long-time employees to not get sucked in, and get out while you still can.
    - Huge amounts of corporate red tape. Something as simple as getting a desk phone requires using the help line routed through Asia, rather than just calling directly to the next building over.
    - Unpreparedness for new hires was evident. There needs to be a much better system for onboarding new hires and making sure that they have resources (phone, computer, cubicle) ready for them on the day they arrive.
    - Very demanding hours for some manufacturing management personnel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create stronger bonds between business units! There is incredibly valuable knowledge across the company, but it is too segregated. Plenty of manufacturing knowledge transfers well between different industries, but it can't if those bridges aren't in place.
