Former Employee - Finance Manager
Former Employee - Finance Manager

I worked at GE full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

GE has some good development opportunities. The corporate programs and its Crotonville training center provide valuable experience to someone starting out his career.

Cons

Corporate programs breed a group-think mentality. Additionally they seem to develop managers rather than leaders. I witnessed people think more highly of themselves because of job titles rather than their own personal and intellectual merits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't blindly promote corporate program participants. It creates a culture of entitlement and group think.

    Former Employee - Senior Engineer in Greenville, SC

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

    Pros

    Work life balance, salary and career growth, top level leadership saying/doing right things but not filtering down through mid management to working level

    Cons

    Politics, kingdom building, functional silos, quarterly budgeting, transactional work environment, too many systems, hard to get things done, too much focus on "internal customer", too much focus on competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More collaboration, focus on external customer, break down the silo walls. Get out in front and "lead", don't hide behind glass doors.
