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

    Pros

    Fantastic place to learn and think like an entrepreneur regardless of the job function. Everyone is expected to have well thought out their ideas and encouraged to speak-up. Leadership training is offered to those who have the "sponsorship" from one of the company officers. Therefore <10% people end-up in executive ranks. Functionally, those in Sales or Finance are valued the most. The rest end up being worker bees for their lives.

    Cons

    Very intrinsically focused for a company that has better than average products. GE is good at acquiring businesses that have good products. However, GE is weak in Product Management. As a result, there is little improvement on products over next 5-10years even though a huge amount is spent on product development. Once competitors catch-up, GE starts lowering its price and hence takes a margin hit. This goes on until the product is unattractive and then GE divests the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut down the multiple layers. Adding a layer to bring two or three businesses under one umbrella doesn't help. The synergies are not there and hence 1+1+1 is not greater than 3.
