    Pros

    GE Healthcare does offer opportunity to specific types of people -- A types are always appreciated as long as they fit into the club. GE over all is a big, big company, which has many places to work and find your fit. If you are not entrepreneurial and prefer working for a large company, this would be the place.

    Cons

    Fraternity atmosphere. High value on certificates and degrees rather than experience and quality. Focus is on this month's numbers rather than long term solutions and building for the future. If you can do PowerPoint you will go far regardless of quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look further than this month's numbers. Perception is that your company is in decline because of being focused on past success and not looking to the future. Get your lips off HCA's rear.

    I worked at GE Healthcare

    Pros

    It's a huge company with a lot of products, plenty of opportunities to learn about how not do do things.

    Cons

    Shareholder-led, quarter-to-quarter decision making. The company always does what's needed to satisfy the analysts, not what's actually the right thing. Every time GE has a bad quarter, or even a decent quarter, the company locks down the hatches, cuts bonuses, restricts travel and pares back annual raises...yet somehow they always manage to construct a booth the size of a city block at tradeshows.
    In addition to the above, GE has a terribly overblown opinion of its own ability to execute. GE ain't that good at process, folks, no matter how many books have been written on the topic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The world can't always be described by a spreadsheet.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
