Pros

Reasonable 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.

Cons

Heavily 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 ManagementAdvice

Stop giving everyone the power to say "no" and give more people the power to say "yes"

    Pros

    Name recognition, employment is somewhat secure depending on the division that you are employed.

    Cons

    Poor senior management, no accountability for performance, unprofessional, long term employees can get away with most anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step into the 21st century. To be successful, you must have the best talent, not just a person that's doing the same thing year-over-year. Enforce accountability. "We've always done it this way" is ridiculous. Challenge the norm!
