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.

    Pros

    Great motivated and driven co-workers

    Cons

    Do not join as a direct hire - all upper management, and I really do mean all, enter via the various Leadership training programs straight out of College.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do try to actually manage your direct reports, stop managing up so often

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

    Pros

    I worked in the Seattle GE Healthcare office for 3 months as an Edison Engineering intern. The experience had good benefits and pay, and little micromanagement. I was able to present my work at all hands meetings, which made me feel like a part of the team. Seattle is pleasant in the summer

    Cons

    Slow corporate feel, lack of young employees, cubicle life, filling out goals was a pain. This particular office seemed to be on the decline, with layoffs happening during my brief stay. The environment was far from electric

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster a more collaborative environment
