Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Grand Rapids, MI

ProsGE is a fairly stable company. It's not immune to downturns, but it is mostly stable. Additionally, since there are so many different businesses within GE, and so many different sites, its fairly easy to move around. Salary pay is alright, and they still do pay for some overtime (up to 55 hours, the first 5 over 40 is unpaid).

Cons- Continual re-organization of each division.
- Program management continually promises things to customers before even checking if engineering has the bandwidth to do the additional work.
- All training is management focused. There is very little technical training.
- Their IT department is one of the most disorganized and inefficient organizations I've ever seen.
- Most of the tools are old, not well suited for modern development practices like Agile, Continuous Integration, etc.
- Heath benefits are not great.
- Your skillset will get stale, there isn't much room for adding in new technologies (web, mobile, etc.)

    Engineering Co-op

    Engineering Co-Op (Former Employee) Evendale, OH

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


    Pros: Many young engineers that are willing to help co-ops learn and develop. If you complete more than one co-op… Cons: Large corporation means hurry-up to wait environment. Often told that that work is HOT… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
