Former Employee - Finance Manager

I worked at GE full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

- Learn a lot
- Have a ton of responsibility
- Move up quickly as long as you have the right connections

Cons

- No work/life balance
- Higher expectations of people without children
- Constant finger pointing
- It's all about who you know, not necessarily what you do

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Feedback on how to improve is always valuable, but a pat-on-the-back (or maybe a thank you) can be motivating every now and again.

    I have been working at GE full-time for less than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    - 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.
