Very corporate environment but you can move up if you want to play that "game".

Research Scientist (Former Employee) Newark, CA

ProsIf you like working in a corporate environment then maybe this is the place for you. You can advance but you need to be the type that enjoys corporate lingo and to be blunt it helps if you suck up to the right people.

ConsExtremely corporate environment. You feel very much like a cog in a wheel and that is how they like it. They try to keep the threat of layoffs hanging over you to keep you under control.

Advice to Senior ManagementGE Security is GE's attempt at entering the highly technical business of security technology. The company is composed almost entirely of acquisitions. That is also how I came to be part of GE Security.

However, GE applied their formula that has worked well for them in the past. That formula being to try and mass produce a technology with low skilled labor and to minimize the impact of a single engineer/scientist. Unfortunately, what they do not understand is that technologies in this sector are still burgeoning. They have to put more emphasis on R and D and put more value on the scientists and engineers that are researching the new technologies. If they keep acting like they are making locomotive engines and that they are working with a "mature" technology then they are in big trouble. Value your scientists and engineers.
