I have been working at GE full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Diverse areas of research, academic-like environment, flexibility, freedom for new ideas, lots of learning opportunities, good job security, nice area for living

Cons

The hierarchy may be too flat, such that there are less opportunities for promotions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create more opportunities for new/young people. Not everybody follow the same career path or at the same pace. Give those who wish to advance chances to shine. You may be surprised (in a good way). Be more open to new ideas, even the far-fetched ones.

    I worked at GE full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely well run global company with a clear vision of how events around the world will impact the business. A solid team environment where one can be expected to be stretched in order to reach the company goals. Strong history of innovation; long string of firsts with respect to new technology inventions and/or technology commercialisation. Without exception everyone in management respects their team members and works to find a work-life balance in a demanding environment. Given an opportunity I would gladly return to work for GE.

    Cons

    Often times the business will not fund a new development effort until a competitor is perceived to have reached a break-through technology. Very difficult to move from one business unit to another without putting yourself in harm's way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe employee satisfaction and productivity would increase if it were more acceptable to move laterally within the company.

    Create more structured junior level development program.
