Extremely strong potential...now time to deliver.

Engineer (Current Employee) Bradenton, FL

ProsGE Security shows an amazing amount of promise. It has strong acquisitions in video (VisioWave), access (Casi-Rusco), and fire (Edwards), and is finally making great strides to incorporate them all into an integrated security platform. If realized correctly, this surely will be a big player in the security industry. Dean Seavers shows great vision in leading the company in a growth-oriented direction. The company prides itself on compliance on all legal levels both in the US and worldwide.

ConsGeneral Electric is a company full of processes to ensure quality control and compliance at all levels. While most of these are extremely valuable and must be maintained, at times the bureaucratic nature of the organization prevents it from making quick navigational strides in order to compete with the smaller, leaner security players in the market.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on integration, as this is the direction the market is taking, and spend less time on so-called "boxed solutions". While distribution will continue to be a strong market, the bigger wins can be realized with the larger, integrated projects.

    Not the same company anymore ... lost basic roots of operational execution focus

    Pros: Very bright people, great career opportunities and challenging jobs. For employees starting their careers it has wonderful leadership programs at entry levels that help you… Cons: Work-life balance, highly political environment, internal promotions highly biased on network and not necessarily based on competence and skillset.
