    I worked at GE full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Once GE took over, I cannot recall any pros.

    Cons

    If your company was acquired by GE, first of all, you will lose the familial atmosphere that may have been present. You become a number, not a name. They do not care about their customer base or their employees, only "spirit of the letter" and metrics. If you have an issue to report, they claim anonymity and safe from retaliation, then you find yourself on report. If you have health issues and have directions from your family doctor, a faceless panel of doctors will decide if the directions will be allowed. If you have an appointment, unless your manager lets you make the time up, you will be docked half a day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not let GE acquire your company!

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Oklahoma City, OK
    Current Employee - Project Manager in Oklahoma City, OK

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

    Pros

    They have great dedicated people that only God Knows why they stay
    There are many opportunities within the OKC site since people have been leaving
    If you have a sponsor there are opportunities within other GE divisions
    If you like to get involved there are many groups and activities to be involved in like the Employee Activities Committee, United Way Campaign, Women's Network, Veteran’s Network, and Volunteer's Group
    Since the acquisition most people are getting Green Belt trained (but not certified)
    Great physical location in Oklahoma City
    They have just installed Tornado shelters
    Company provides coffee

    Cons

    Most managers are not in tune with their subordinates needs
    Within Oklahoma City there is not much career growth
    It is hard to get certified for your Green Belt because the data is not readily accessible
    There is a lengthy workflow for everything
    Most departments are busting at the seams with people
    Thus, parking is a hassle
    Some, not all, managers micromanage
    Some, not all, managers do not promote career growth with their people
    In some departments there are too many layers of managers
    Each department is even more silo'ed in their group than before due to the workflow burden
    Though the company provides coffee, it is a different grade of coffee between builds. (Engineering is known to have the best coffee, tea selection, and hot chocolate stash, WHY?)
    There is constant blame games even within departments rather than let's fix it and be a team
    Terms & Conditions are ridiculous on contracts for orders as well as to approved suppliers
    GE Corporate has unrealistic profit objectives and holds the divisions responsible even if the company within are hitting their targets

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the etiquette of managing people, be authentic NOT fake
