Pros

big company, good benefits. competitive pay. Conglomerate with various businesses, giving you an one stop shop for the opportunity of working for different industries

Cons

culture is not result-oriented. Office politics is the key for success, rather than professional accomplishments. High employee turnover ratio at the lower levels of the organization.

Advice to Management

Communicate expectations more clearly.

    Pros

    Interesting technology.
    Always something to learn

    Cons

    I am surprised so many people on this site are satisfied with GE. The employee experience for myself and virtually every other colleague I speak with is one of disappointment. This is reinforced by a high turnover of personel. The reputation for training GE has does not take place in my business unit, the quality at times is embarrasing. The disconnect between employees and leaders is vast. There is no support, teamwork, or cooperation. It is standard for emails not to be responded to. When we are the face of GE to the Customer we need support at times, it is not there. The was actually an article on the GE intranet last week called "Culture Shock" where it talked about the "exodus"of people. This too was reinforced by the internal GEOS (GE Opinion Survey) which confirms my comments. The culture in my business unit is subpar, period.

    I am looking internally to get out of the unit I am in, otherwise life is too short to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to Customers, listen to Employees
