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

Pros

- Good benefits
- I worked for a great leader. Great/Good leaders can work for any company.
- Interesting work. Healthcare is a very interesting problem space for engineering.
- If you are into rigorous, detailed process this is a great place to be

Cons

- eLearning. Right out of 30 rock.
- Large and can be impersonal as such.
- If you are not into rigorous, detailed process this is not a place you want to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Cut online learning to bare minimum to meet all your legal requirements.

You really need to better communicate to customers you intentions for products that are nearing end of life cycle.

If you are an employee it is actually easier to look for a job outside of GE than it is inside GE.

    I worked at GE Healthcare

    Pros

    Great location and a great set of customers. Work can be intellectually stimulating. Healthcare sector makes one feel like they are doing good

    Cons

    Lack of strategy. Poor/lackluster/incompetent executive leadership at all levels. Too much red tape. Company does not value the people who do the work, but rewards failure at the executive level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be humble and admit that you have a lot to learn about the sector, leadership, and business. Listen to the experts, rather than playing expert and making decisions that result in job losses, customer dissatisfaction

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people, energized, Type A culture, and unlimited potential to move up in the organization if you do your job well.

    Cons

    Many internal processes to navigate. Hard to push any risky "out of the box" ideas to management. Matrix style corporation, so you need to be able to influence people to successfully complete your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at real risks, not theoretical "near zero" risks to evaluate opportunities.
