Pros

GE is an established company with well-established product development plans. There was clear and concise information from management about the program goals at the front end of the project, but they were willing to adjust those goals depending on feedback from other groups. GE has a number of process and systems in place to promote and challenge their employees. The company is so large and diverse, there is never a lack of opportunity within the company.

Cons

GE continually challenges its employees, which can lead to stressful work situations. The benefits were not great when I was there. New employees (regardless of previous work experience) were given 2 weeks of vacation. There was pressure on the employees to not take much vacation during the year but to save it for around the end of the year (most employees take off the last two weeks of the year). In addition, the healthcare contribution was significant for families and were high deductible plans.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company has a good vision and good overall technical and project management, but better benefits and work/life balance would be helpful for employee retention.

    Pros

    - Opportunities are everywhere, but they are what you make of them.
    - Majority of people are great to work with and are generally very bright and willing to lend a hand.
    - Advancement of technology and information sharing is paramount to driving innovation and future growth.

    Cons

    - Large corporation with complex organizational structure and lots of bureaucracy.
    - Government oversight due to the nature of the business reduces speed of developing new technologies and slows new product introduction to the market.
