Pros

GE has a strong brand and overall a solid reputation. It's a good experience to work for GE.

Cons

They don't have a strong training program. They have a complicated compensation plan for the sales team and they are likely to change the compensation plan at any given time. Its such a large company (over 300,000 employees) and each division/business unit has the authority to run their own business which makes it difficult to work with other businesses that have their own goals and agenda.

Advice to Management

Spend more time with the customers and the employees who work with the customers on a daily business in order to have a better understanding of customer needs and to learn about how GE can provide more value to its customer base. Also, changing your sales team's compensation plan in the middle of the year is a terrible thing to do and its a bad way to retain your employees.

    Pros

    This company is well respected, with a wonderful history. The GEHC (Healthcare) will continue to decline due to governmental regulations and declining healthcare reimbursements.

    Cons

    The organization has become very complex since Jack's departure as CEO. There are many unnecessary managers, operations managers do not need to exist as the GM should be doing those functions.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all of the layers, stop promoting sales force to managerial/operational roles.
