Pros

Good professional development, variety of things to work on. This location provides significant collaboration and learning opportunities.

Cons

Don't work here if you are lazy or think that your good personality will carry you. It is a large company, so there are lots of processes you go through, sometimes to do something simple.

Advice to Management

More often than not you have good, dedicated people that work for you - empower them!

    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 Management

    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.
