    Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at GE Aviation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Dynamic global industry. Ability to reach across multiple functions and contribute equally. Aside from the healthcare coverage very good comp and benefits. Process focused work culture. Strong volunteerism but only for GE sponsored events.

    Cons

    Leadership is the wrong term - it is management. Plenty of managers but few leaders. Not very welcoming and friendly to those who come into GE Aviation from the outside (external hires) or even from other GE businesses. Extremely limited opportunity to advance unless you rise up and enter through Corporate Audit Staff. Meritocracy GE is not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in outside perspective and shake up the existing "system" for promoting.

    Current Employee - Information Technology Leadership Program in Cincinnati, OH

    I have been working at GE Aviation as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, managers care and want you to succeed. Have to work hard or give the impression of working hard in order to succeed. Networking is big and there are a lot of opportunities to interact with the senior leadership.

    Cons

    No creative outlet, cut and dry requirements. Pretty big on diversity so people get promoted for the wrong reasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expose the IT teams to the core business so they can better understand the purpose of the company.
