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

    Compensation and benefits are above average. GE looks great on the resume.
    It offers a great opportunity to college graduates and younger employees.

    Cons

    Communication from management is poor. Employees are pretty much kept in the dark about what the strategic direction is. Overall employee morale is low.
    GE is very quick to eliminate jobs, definitely too reactive. Training opportunities are rare. Everything is budget-driven. GE needs to learn to invest in the company, and to focus less on cutting costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more considerate of employees, and remember that they have lives outside of the office. Focus on longer term objectives. Be willing to invest more money in process improvements and employee training.

    Pros

    Worlwide recognition of the company makes it easy or people to identify with your employment background. Once you tell someone that you were with GE, the automatically know that you are well traned and have plenty of experience. i enjoyed that you are always in the know of key performance numbers. It was as if I was running my very own business. Unfortunately, you are not rewared as if you are the owner of that business hehe. If you like to travel a lot, this can be a very rewarding experience as the company has so many offices worldwide and encourages mobility.

    Cons

    Must be willing to relocate in order to be competitive for promotions and career advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking avout your employees by the Band they are currently in
