    Pros

    Working with some of the best and smartest people in the world.
    The companies size allows them to take risks on people and put them in "bigger" jobs than they'd find elsewhere.
    Daily challenges and learning opportunities.
    Great employee feedback process

    Cons

    Hours at times can be extreme
    Sink or swim environment
    Large company, comes with some bureaucracy
    Some leaders seem to have survived regardless of performance (Minimal and often the exception to the rule)
    Salary can be lower than individuals market value early in career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in new products and people. Technology is our key to winning.

    Intelligent personnel, but a somewhat backstabbing environment. No real loyalty among employees and chain of command.

    Pros

    Smart, driven and competent employees.

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't have great leadership ability. Managers are out for themselves, without any real training or motivation to develop subordinates. GE advertises flexible work/life arrangements and programs, but when you approach HR about these programs, they basically try to steer you away from utilizing the same programs that they brag about so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistent, specific feedback and regular performance counseling (whether that performance has been good, or bad!). Take care of your people and go to bat for them when interacting with more senior personnel. Do what you can to find out their own goals and help them to achieve them. I felt that most of the reviews I received at GE were considered a waste of time and more of an afterthought or annoying requirement by my chain of command, and I never got an real useful information in these reviews. Also, feedback should be formal and regular, not once a year.
