    Current Intern - Research Intern in Niskayuna, NY

    I have been working at GE as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great culture of the company
    - The global research center (where I interned at) has a lot of really smart people
    - The area in the summer is great, with a lot of fun things to do
    - Great place to intern at

    Cons

    - The area is not that nice in the winter; since there are not many indoor activities given that it is a very small city, and in the winter it is so cold and snowy!
    - You need to check before accepting to intern there whether the lab you would be interning at is really a good fit for your background and interests or not.

    Low growth conglomerate, struggling under the weight of its own hubris

    I worked at GE full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    some vestiges of its former glory remain in its instant name recognition, which is helpful on a resume

    Cons

    it is simply too big to be innovative anymore and it is disheartening to watch desperate people who have clawed their way to the top, sometimes clamboring over their bosses' heads to get face time with their bosses boss, stab each other in the back to hold their positions in the midst of all the layoffs over the last five years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thin the ranks of overpaid top level execs and be more nimble; don't think you've modernized just because you transitioned six sigma to lean, because GE is anything but lean.
