I worked at GE

Pros

Good opportunity for personal and professional growth IF you take advantage of everything offered. Better than average benefits. Salary is low compared to national averages.

Cons

Don't expect your manager to discuss "career path" with you. You need to create and mold your own career path. Take advantage of education opportunities offered.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on improving your management skills. If you're not growing and improving every year, how can you expect improvement in those you manage?

    I have been working at GE

    Pros

    Great benefits at a low cost to employee, Worldwide name recognition, Very diversified company

    Cons

    Too much overkill...ie., too much time wasted on some overkill positions from people trying to justify their positions and existence within the company, "Permit to Work", "JSA's", "RWA's", "SRA's", "Scorecards", "NPF Scores" on and on and on. To conduct a 10 minute job, this administrative overhead takes that 10 minute job and turns it into a 2 hour job, thereby costing the company money as contractors sit around waiting to get started to do the task they were hired to do. Management actually stated outloud "I Just Don't Know How Anything Gets Done Without All These Meetings"!! Read that again, that's not a typo. That's our actual mentality, and they wonder why people won't stay. Their attitude is that you shouldn't have a family or life outside of GE, that you should willingly devote your extra time on your low salary for the good of "The Business".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline, simplify, keep it simple
