Current Employee - Engineer

I have been working at GE full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Good benefits, great engineers, good work-life balance

Cons

Fast track managment is killing the company. Managers are consumed with satisfying metrics only for personal gain. Company vision is lost in middle management because they are most often not qualified to be in the position they are. It is clear resumes are not vetted prior to managers being hired. Engineering teams in the US are shrinking or disappearing. Teams in India are enormous.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Read and verify resumes before you promote people to staff positions. Make managers stay in current positions long enough to experience the effects of their decisions. Dont throw the tools out just because you dont know how to use them. hire qualified decision makers that know how to manage the tools. layoff the people that make the bad decisions instead of the workers that are just doing their jobs.
