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

Pros

Big name brand. Ok pay.

Cons

Exploit employees to full extent. Especially legal immigrants working for them. Tries to keep employees tied up for decades with contracts at every step, and penalties too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You hire legal immigrants because they are qualified, but you bind them in contracts so that you don't have to worry about them leaving the company... And then you just forget about them. Why worry about employees satisfaction if he/she can't leave the company because of penalties in contracts.
