GE Security is a fraction of what it could be

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Arden Hills, MN

ProsThe company has great compensation. Working for GE is currently looked at as being a positive when trying to find a new job.

ConsInstead of trying to grow most of the aquasitions, GE consistantly focuses on making profit by cutting the bottom line. They constantly look for cheaper ways to build product. While this basic idea is not a bad thing, their presure to do this is extreme. After some time, the quality goes.

Their employees are only numbers to them. Their basic policy is to force out 10% every year. They do this by forcing managers to put 10% of their people into a catagory indicating they are sub-par. This should be based on the managers opinion, not some moron in Bradenton!!!

Advice to Senior Management1) Listen to your people. I mean the workers, not managers.
2) Think further out than next quarter. Every year, management says the are going to do this, but it does not happen.
3) Listen to your customers. Not just the largest 2 of them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I don't think it is fair to create bad reviews when most of your problems are created by your manager.
