Current Employee - General Manager  in  Fairfield, CT
Current Employee - General Manager in Fairfield, CT

Pros

- Good people, smart... driven
 - Great opportunitites if you are willing to relocate every two years
 - Great place to be from

Cons

- Great people leaving ...many, many great people leaving
 - There is an internal battle between regional teams and P&Ls in the Energy business, a complete distraction to the entire company
 - GE promised to stick with senior managers that have industry and domain experience, but most of the CEO placements recently are a move to place the GE favorites with respect to industry knowledge

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Get in touch with your employees and listen before they are all gone and you need to start over

    Pros

    Lots of talented employees, many different opportunities for a wide variety of positions. Innovation is strongly encouraged and rewarded.

    Cons

    Very large company, hard to stand out among hundreds of thousands of talented individuals. There are also many long standing traditions in some of the areas of the company, and are hard to break.

    No opinion of CEO

    Current Employee - Repair Engineer  in  Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Repair Engineer in Houston, TX

    Pros

    good work/family balance is good, that's about it. Good company if you're trying to be a corporate person, but if you just want to be just so, then look else where. I guess everything else is ok

    Cons

    promotion is based on who likes you rather than your performance. They are not good when you want to refer friends/family to a position.I havent really had a good experience working with them in the 5-6 years I've been affilitated with the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    fire them all, get new ones
