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

Pros

not too many really. good for a temp stop gap but that's it

Cons

you have to watch your back , politics are very prevalent especially in the blending room, the tools given are not up to par for the job required, you have to work with grinders that don't last maybe 2 months or less. The miniature grit blaster is constantly ineffective for the speed needed, Training , you watch for 1-2 weeks then they may let you work on a bucket by just removing over spray. They are always in short supply of reamers needed to clear holes. you put work orders in for repairs on grit blasters and grinders that may or may not actually get fixed a lot on bubble gum and bailing wire fixes all the while hollering about production,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

start listening to the actual employees instead of having M A U employees on 1 yr contract and then rehire more 1 year temps, that is why quality is never consistent.

    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.
