Pros

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

Cons

Instead 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 Management

1) 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.

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

    Pros

    Unknown at this time GE purchased our company so I never felt the GE way of life

    Cons

    When GE purchased my company, they purchased another company and kept most of their arse managers.

    Advice to Management

    Do not purchase companies and merge them without knowing the culture of each company. They may not get along.

    Pros

    - Leadership development programs are incredible - Work with very diverse teams, some of the smartest people I have and ever will meet - Ability to work in several different business models under one GE umbrella

    Cons

    - LONG hours in finance roles - Expectations are difficult to meet, the bar is always one level higher than current performance - The goal of CFO jobs is primarily to meet the operating plan numbers... using whatever levers necessary

    Advice to Management

    - Work on striving to change the mindset of senior leaders... motivation should come from making the total company more profitable, rather than working for internal ambitions (your own promotion, your P&L numbers, etc.).
