Good for your first industry job

Electrical Engineer (Current Employee)
Niskayuna, NY

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

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
