Great place to start your career. Tradeoffs - pay and extreme workload demands.

Pros

Personal growth and development. No shortage of opportunities to "stretch" yourself. The organization is so leanly staffed, that you get an opportunity to participate in everything.

Cons

It's a machine. Extremely short-term, financial focus. The work/life balance seem to only apply to select groups, for PR purposes. In reality, too much "life" focus will leave you behind, or out. Haven't seen less than 50 hrs/week in years. "pay at the 50% of market,"

Advice to Management

Reconsider a 4% "effect on payroll," per year. In the US, food and energy prices are up over 10% and 30% this year alone, respectively. Putting us way behind the marketplace.

    Pros

    It was a place with great people, and great process. (If your not into process clearly might not be a good place for you)

    Cons

    It's a very large compnay and all the units don't always work together; so think of your self of more working for one of the GE companies rather than GE as a whole

    Advice to Management

    Have fun, think like a small, agile company... create something exciting.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Huge company gives lots of opportunity to try many different areas. If you work in a certain area for a while, you can try a completely different type of work within the same company, same pension, etc. By staying within the same company you can keep your seniority while trying to advance your career in different ways.

    Cons

    Since it's such a large company, you can find yourself in lots of bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to paint clear visions and not leave things open ended
