...not your Father's GE

GE Engineer (Current Employee)
Lynn, MA

Pros• Broad range of products and services to spark long term career interest
• Process oriented company
• Great training programs offered for both new and experienced engineers
• Great employee / company support for community activities
• Excellent job posting system spanning entire company
• Ability to transfer to different businesses within company (subject to management approval)
• Purchase GE products at reduced cost
• Flexible working arrangements

Cons• Bureaucratic - rigid processes often inhibits individual initiative, creativity, and customer service
• US based company with more non-US employees promotes transfer of technical skills outside of US
• Management frequently asks for opinions and feedback but often hears what they want to hear
• Pay raises not commensurate with contributions
• Defined pension plan replaced by contributing 401K for recent hires
• Company sponsor medical plan (dental, eye, medical, medicine) revamped at great employee out of pocket cost. Yearly expenses can range from 4% gross base pay with little / no illness to 10% or more with typical family medical expenses

Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate officers are out of touch with their people. Don’t forget the people who made GE great long before you became a manager and probably long after you leave on your next promotion.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
