Former Employee - Account Manager in Columbus, OH
Former Employee - Account Manager in Columbus, OH

I worked at GE full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great Brand recognition within many industries
Potential for the individual divisions to work together to close large opportunities.
Rich company history
Excellent product training when it is available

Cons

Too quick to cut expenses when quarterly numbers fall short of expectations
Good ole boy mentality within management
Reluctance by local management to push back on HQ when necessary
Little focus on sales results too much administrative work to be an effective account manager
Reviews written based on manager perceptions that are not supported by the results of individuals (IE you make your number but get dinged because you are not the managers favorite)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold your middle managers accountable for district / regional goals and don't let them point fingers at account managers especially ones who made their numbers and grew their territory.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
