    Another cog in the wheel

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -GE Healthcare looks great on any resume
    - first hand experience with office politics.
    - pay is average

    Cons

    - Cog in the wheel.
    - you honestly could have found the cure for cancer and it would get lost in all the workflows and red tape
    - some employees could come and go as they please 9am-3pm
    - other employees are docked for not being there 7:30-530
    - everyone walks around with scours on their faces
    - a lot of back door politics you have to be cognizant of

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - clear off all your day long meetings with your peers and find out about your people
    - when the executives are constantly checking their phones and looking at stock prices before during and after be reports its earnings report, show you the real true north here.

    -get in. Stay for. 3-5yrs. Then it's time to look elsewhere.

    Pros

    retirement benefit plus 401k match
    tends to be more job stability than small companies
    marketing driven - program focus
    profit generating company
    limits competition by only investing in high barrier to entry products

    Cons

    big company politics
    suffocating process - regulated industry is partly to blame but cya attitude multiples the problem
    lack of long term engineering vision - downside of market driven approach
    very little innovation - slowly evolves existing product
    management is focused on climbing the ladder rather than technology savy
    management is inbred - lack of outside perspective
    management leadership is overrated - no vision
    long-term employees have become techically obsolete but politically entrenched
    not a good incubator of software talent
    lots of false technical leaders with great sales skills
    true technical leaders will find it difficult to influence the roadmap

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run company more like small businesses so innovation can thrive.
    Compete by being the most efficient and lean at implementing regulatory process.
    Forget the one-line theme slogans.
