    Pros

    As much as some employers claim to offer internships with "meaningful work", GE is one of the few where a college student can actually leave with an understanding of the impact they made, makes it feel much more worthwhile.

    Cons

    Internship quality can vary somewhat depending on assignments, but then again so can any other job. Slightly lower pay for a CS student than a straight up programming gig, but worth it if you don't want to be stuck at the same desk all day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Program might be improved through increased communication between assignment leaders and the program heads.

    I have been working at GE

    Pros

    Integrity matters...performance-driven culture...opportunities for advancement...exposure to senior leaders...strong benefits package...listening and learning culture...solid performance review processes...basically if you perform at this company you can go far...socially responsible employees and supportive Company...strong internal and external support of Green and Health initiatives

    Cons

    Can be too bureaucratic...not always a "make the market" company, but a fast follower...fairly conservative, which actually has served them well in the recession...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep innovating on the industrial side - the future is in global infrastructure
