Pros

A very large and proud company with many grow opportunities so long as you are one of the "insiders" and/or the "choosen" to be a active, valued contributor for the business.

Cons

My experience is that opinions outside the mainstream or "NIH' are not recieved well, especially when they point to a flaw or fault in a business plan. This happens a lot with an acquistion because it's not the GE way, which by definition is wrong.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As part of a small acquistion, I feel management needs to be more honest with the employeees on why the acquisition is really happening...is it just to fill a spot on the "line card,' or do you intend to invest to grow the business, committing to the future. Managment most often doesn't care to share the long-term plans for the business.

    Pros

    For gaining experience and leadership skills there is no company better. They invest a lot in the employees and they give plenty of opportunities to grow. They care about there employees and in situations where it maybe unsafe they will take every precaution to make sure it is safe.

    Cons

    Its wont be the best paying job and its just as important to pick the right manager as it is to pick the right job. Once you have figured out the best way to do that you will go far. In GE during the first 5 years you will determine whether you love it or hate it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more competitive with your compensation. Finding, training, and growing great talent is a huge advantage that GE has over all other companies... Keeping them is the difficult part. If you are competitive with your compensation, salaries, you will keep the vast majority of your talent and it will pay off more then what was spent on salary in project execution.

    Pros

    A large company that offers a diverse career path in just about every technical field whilst keeping you challenged and engaged.

    Cons

    GE is company desired by most people and thus allows a long list of people will to come to work for such a good company, salaries not always competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is great to engage the key team members but need to ensure visibility and exposure are maintained and appropriate recognition and credit provided.
