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 Management

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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Decent salary. Opportunity to broaden skill across multiple GE businesses while sill working under the same umbrella company.

    Cons

    Internal IT infrastructure is not necessarily state of the art or speedy. Getting things accomplished using IT systems in house is a once-a-year- -get-it-on-the-plan-or-forget-about-it exercise most of the time. great that they have yearly processes. sometimes that leads to a lack of agility.
