Pros

- Market-competitive compensation
- Smart, team-oriented and supportive colleagues
- Commitment to excellence and to GE Values

Cons

- Commute to San Ramon is unpleasant, for most tech professionals
- Open work space approach works well for developers and engineers, but is disastrous for Marketing, HR, Finance. Difficult to impossible to hold effective meetings (even by phone) or to do any sort of critical or abstract thinking

Advice to Management

- Consider the best of Silicon Valley approaches to improve location challenge
1) Satellite offices
2) Work from home flexibility
3) Company shuttles

- Ditto with open work space challenge -- build offices for your top talent.

    Pros

    The culture is very relaxed, the business is very profitable, and the people are generally all around good and smart people. Work/Life balance usually has a pretty high priority.

    Cons

    The salaries are just average, annual raises are typically small (average less than 3%), lots of bureaucracy within the GE matrix organization. Upper management sometimes also has a habit of selling products that don't exist, which creates a strain on the engineering teams.

    Advice to Management

    It would be better if the upper management rewarded employees for hard work. Especially when a particular business (such as Bently Nevada) is very profitable.


  2. Lots of growth opportunity

    Pros

    Very committed to personal and career development. Immense resources. Good benefits

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy. Even tiny decisions need to get approval many levels up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep benefits packages strong or employee retention will suffer
