Pros

Good training program, love working with some of the people there.

Cons

Too much politics, you feel like you are a moving target. Their so called performance review is very bias, coming from the people who would like to advanced by doing everything to get rid off you. If you don't get along with one of your co-worker, just be prepare to get a bad performance review. They also treated their consultant bad.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop micro managing,the so called performance ( more like personal behavior review) is not doing anything but making the employees miserables.

    Pros

    Large, powerful company with varied financial products and related business units. If you embrace change and are mobile, you can navigate a rewarding career.

    Cons

    Sweat shop. Depending on your function, it will attempt to wring every ounce of energy out of you. GE Company wants GE Capital's portion to be smaller in the overall pie, yet GE Company is experiencing slow growth; therefore, it needs to shrink GE Capital faster. Can't compete with large money center banks' cost of funds, as it is now also regulated but without cheap deposits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out more senior level positions in HQ and push decision making to business unit level. Norwalk is out of touch with business units and protects its own overpaid positions.
