Pros

Talented and hard working peers. Integrity, honesty. There are great opportunities, but can be difficult to obtain. Training is excellent, but not available to everyone. There are many opportunities to move laterally, but usually require geographic relocation and opportunities are dependant on ability to be known outside of your workgroup.

Cons

High pressure environment, fast work pace, heavy work loads, big stretch goals. Understaffed, difficult to get funding for approved projects. Do more with less environment. Lots of talk about taking big swings, inovation, creative solutions, but implementation is hampered by aversion to risk, and anecdotal stories of "we tried that and it did not work" but no data, no detials.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees as the responsible, intelligent people they are. HR is terrible.

    Pros

    Health Insurance, benefits, flexible work schedule..etc GE due ot its large size and base of employees can negotiate much better benfits with
    Having the name of GE on your resume looks extremely good in your future career, esp for people like myself with only 3 yrs of engineering experience

    Cons

    GE-Hitachi, formerly, GE Nuclear before the alliance, has not delivered any Nuke in the last 30 yrs due to domestic animosity, economic, political and social climate that were unfavorable to Nuclear energy. As such, the management group were formed fairly recently (< 4 years) and have no major project management experience. As of Aug'08 I think the management still has plenty of things to do to make Nuclear Renaissance possible!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start making decision
    Know that the morale is low and start communicating what you are thinking, the long term vision and how you envision to accomplish the engineering tasks...
