Former Employee - Risk Management Program Intern  in  Norwalk, CT
Former Employee - Risk Management Program Intern in Norwalk, CT

Pros

Very involved with the everyday dealings of the Global Valuation Team at GE Capital Real Estate; exposure to senior executives; exposure to multiple areas of risk management (risk analytics, corporate credit review, valuation, portfolio management, etc.); great company culture and great people! Very intelligent but also very down to earth

Cons

Would have liked more events planned for interns to get to know one another; HR process at the end of internship was difficult to understand

    Former Employee - EMEA in New York, NY

    Pros

    Lot's of opportunity for training and responsibility. Hires mostly from outside now that market has improved in CT and NY.

    Cons

    Most upper mgmt has no or little real experience in institutional investments or the decision process at plan sponsors/consultants. Lot's of turnover at the top and gender bias in certain jobs. Closing products without telling outside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go passive or sell off the liabilities. Hire an unbiaded consultant from outside to review HR procedures.

    You can sit and do nothing and still get paid - as long as you agree with your Managers!

    Former Employee - Investment Management Associate  in  Norwalk, CT
    Former Employee - Investment Management Associate in Norwalk, CT

    Pros

    1) Very relaxed culture.
    2) Great for life-life balance
    3) Do little and still get paid. Do a lot and still get paid
    4) Offers stability in life

    Cons

    1) No meritocracy. Lots and lots of Red Tape
    2) No urgency of work. It will get done when it will get done attitude
    3) Managers who have no spine - they will not fight for you unless it fits their agenda
    4) Lots of meetings, and more meetings about meetings! Meetings about status updates! Tremendous waste of time.
    5) Slow decision making and always behind the curve
    6) Everyone is a 'bobble head' - if your manager subscribes to a theory, you must do the same. Dare you challenge the status quo! This behavious trickles down from the very top and if you don't conform to it, you will not fit in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to encourage challenging the status quo, even if means you disagree with the CEO. It will make you a better company and more competitive.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
