Pros

Great place to learn. Lots of opportunites to stretch your skills.

Cons

Too much overhead. Simple changes require too many approvals. Lots of administration required for every job. Completing all the non-job tasks takes time away from doing what you were employed to do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ask the engineers. They care about the product and actually know what it needs.

    Pros

    Stable company with a desire to innovate.

    Cons

    Too big and too many people and processes to be able to get out of its own way to innovate and stay ahead of competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut down on processes and red tape, and run the company like a 100 person company.

    I have been working at GE full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many smart people work here and are generally pleasant colleagues. If you are right out of school and can get into one of the management programs, it is a good place to start. If you are an experienced professional and need a job, then maybe this is a place to wait until the economy improves.

    Cons

    GE is an extraordinarily bureaucratic company, despite the internal company line. It continually reorganizes (every year I've been here) so there really is never a steady-state. The company is investing in systems, but currently the info systems are absolutely dismal. It also off-shores a lot of employment to contractors in India, and many of these people have poor English language skills, and you will have to work with them.
