Pros

GE is a huge company that is made up of multiple strong businesses. Irrespective of what role you are in, every day you learn and grow exponentially. The leaders are selected through a tough selection process so any GE leader is a role model. This is the place you need to be to learn leadership skills and grow your business acumen and domain knowledge. Also GE really knows how to sail through tough business cycles with the help of both innovative and effective decision making.

Due to all this I was able to grow from a systems analyst to a seasoned management professional when I quit. I owe a lot of my skills and knowledge to GE.

Cons

GE is not a place to be if you would like to grow your technical skills in IT since IT is not a core competency there. Also at times you could feel like very small fish in a mammoth ocean, a cog in the wheel and hence your achievements start looking small in comparison

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some India leaders of IT teams try to control their teams as if they are in IT Services, which is far from reality...and they fail!
