    Still a great place to work, but isn't the company it used to be.

    Former Employee - Quality and Regulatory Leadership Intern in Waukesha, WI

    I worked at GE Healthcare as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very good career path and opportunities. Good mentoring and coaching. There are a lot of very talented people at GE. Well recognized as one of the best places to start a career. Despite its reputation, I found very reasonable work-life balance at GE.

    Cons

    GE no longer offers best in class or even competitive salaries (compared to other F-50 companies like P&G, GE, United Technologies, etc) so the quality of new hires is not best in class anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to the management style of Jack Welsh which made GE the most valuable company in the world.

    Current Employee - IT - Technical in Milwaukee, WI
    Current Employee - IT - Technical in Milwaukee, WI

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people. Excellent flexibility. Decent benefits, although the health insurance package is not as good as it used to be. It's not as cut-throat as it used to be, but it is demanding.

    Cons

    No true technical career path in IT. Although they've been making noise about it for 10 years, they have yet to actually create technical executive positions at GE Healthcare. Other GE businesses are starting to put them in place, but not at Healthcare. Can you deal with a huge bureacracy? Can you deliver a project on time, on budget, even though none of the resources will report to you? You'll do fine. Regulatory validation was overdone, so there is huge overhead on all IT projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes to the industry. Not all best practice originate internally. Pay attention to customers, don't wait until revenue is threatened (or declining) to make changes. Put your money where your mouth is: promote some technical folks.
