Huge company with great training and resources, but not very personal.

Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at GE full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGE has some of the best business training in the world. Some is available for all. For the best classes you must be nominated. Your fellow employees are some of the most talented people available. Some employees can successfully move from one industry to another.

ConsRegardless of how well you perform, decisions about your employment are made far above you, often by someone you will never meet. It's all about the numbers. There are unbelievable politics and layers to navigate here. The commitment to integrity is put to the side when it comes to reducing staff to make numbers.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't make decisions about eliminating top talent without careful consideration. These choices appear to be made in a vacuum, looking only at the numbers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
