Good challenges, but has a tendency to jade you.

Pros

GE will constantly provide you with great challenges which will push you to your limit every day. The management tends to be friendly, and most people there care about you as a person and employee.

Cons

The bureaucracy of most large companies are bad, and GE is one of the largest. If you can't play the political game you are either shoehorned into a particular role or forgotten about. Old-world style managers will make their way upwards while very talented individuals will be used for their abilities, but will ultimately suffer in their personal lives as a result. You can make it big at GE--for a price.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep listening to your employees. Get out of your bubbles, but don't go so far as to micromanage. The world isn't GE, you can't expect our customers to think as we do internally so be a little more realistic about what GE is and what we can provide as employees.

    I worked at GE as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great place to work, nice people, good work life balance and lots of social events to foster interactions

    Cons

    They can do better in terms of compensations. I guess the name on your resume makes up for the non-competitive pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work
