    Advancement is slow and does not pay nearly what you can get from other companies

    I have been working at GE full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent exposure to various learning opportunities and businesses ranging from: aircraft engine manufacturing, locomotive manufacturing, financial services, healthcare manufacturing, software development, energy services (wind/water/power manufacturing), and more.

    Cons

    Not the meritocracy we were promised from a salary perspective. GE is terrible with incentive's for retaining their top talent, and as a result most leave once they discover their earning potential elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on strategies for retaining top talent, as once they get wise to the fiscal opportunities outside the company, they will most certainly leave, as evident by the already large - and growing - turnover rate of top talent personnel.
