    I worked at GE full-time (more than an year)

    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

    So big with so many groups working in silos, you can basically collect a paycheck forever flying under the radar.

    Cons

    Management nowhere near what it used to be. Constant restructuring, no career path, managers change ever six months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring Jack Back! Switch focus back to customer satisfaction instead of cheapest outsourced solution.
