Pros

The salaries are fair. The flex time makes the job easier. Being such a large company, the job options are limitless. Working for GE always looks good to other potential employers.

Cons

The hours worked and multiple personalities that you will encounter can become cumbersome at times.

    Employees are commodity. The management has no idea about the skill set of employees.

    Pros

    There are many super-talented, experienced, creative and impressive people working in GE. Unfortunately, those people rarely advance to become senior leaders within the company, but they are wonderful people to work with. The GE culture is tough, demanding and aggressive. I say those things all in a positive light, as my own personal style closely matches the "GE persona."

    Cons

    For the past several years, most senior managers are not leaders, visionaries, and can easily pitch out buzzwords and speak about "driving growth" "innovation" and "collaboration." In reality, most senior managers care exclusively about managing their own resumes to land their next gig either in GE or elsewhere. If you want to be inspired and learn from senior leaders, get a good book or watch an inspiring TED Talk. You won't find it here.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people who are nothing but "taking heads" who simply repeat empty, meaningless buzzwords that they don't understand themselves. There is a tremendous pool of talented employees within the ranks with more active braincells than most of the folks sitting in corner offices. What a shame.
