Former Employee - Software Analyst in Burlington, VT

I worked at GE full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Excellent benefits; interesting and meaningful work; many professional and helpful coworkers who were dedicated to providing quality work

Cons

Huge workloads with constant pressure to perform and improve with measurements being taken constantly; inadequate training for my position; team leader was too young and immature for her position, tried to undercut people to management and made it feel like high school; growlers on the job with management ok (some will like this but no one should be drinking on the job)

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at GE full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    GE has the resources and capacity to do world-changing things.

    Cons

    The ideals Jack once preached have been twisted into a cultural nightmare. Teams are pitched against teams, primary focus has shifted from achievement and accomplishment to dodging blame and avoiding being the punching bag. Frequent layoffs and reorgs lead to a fear-driven operational mindset.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refocus on core values, make sure every employee feels like a stakeholder working towards a goal instead of a cog in the machine trading their soul for a paycheck.
