A great place to work, but new parent company strategy changing interal dynamic

M&A Associate (Former Employee) Norwalk, CT

ProsReasonable pay. Good hours. Good team. Good people. Good company culture. Good leadership. Overall, the company grew strongly from the mid-80's to the mid-00's. After the financial crisis, the parent company made it a goal to shrink and exit platforms viewed as non-strategic and focus instead on USA and specific core spaces linked to the industrial parent.

ConsHeavily bureaucratic. Heavily matrixed organization. The entire company is this way. Fortunately, GE Capital manages to protect itself - most of the time - from the HQ layer of bureaucracy and is able to make the majority of its decisions on its own. However, with the recent inclusion under Federal Reserve regulation, this may change or become more complex.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop giving everyone the power to say "no" and give more people the power to say "yes"

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
