Pros and Cons of working at GE Capital?

Risk Analyst (Former Employee)
Philadelphia, PA

I worked at GE

ProsIt's a leader in multiple industries, and if you start your career out of school with GE the brand name alone can open up many doors when you eventually leave. The training they provide is first class and that is recognized in the industry. In addition, individuals are often given large amounts of responsibility early on in their careers.

ConsIt is a very large and bureaucratic organization that is difficult to advance in unless you are very willing to move to different geographic locations frequently.

Advice to Senior ManagementSr. Management officers at GE businesses are given the authority to run their businesses their own way, however, irrational decisions are often times made due to pressures from above related to meeting corporate demands or goals. Management could do better at standing up to corporate and defending their ideals regarding how to run their business units.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
