    I worked at GE full-time

    Pros

    Great leadership development programs, a lot of opportunities for training, looks great on your resume if you decide to pursue graduate school or a new position elsewhere, decent work-life balance

    Cons

    LImited upward mobility at younger ages, found many instances of people being promoted to manager because it is seen as the next step versus truly being ready to manage, experienced some leaders who were all about working your hours versus working smarter and alloing flexibility

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace allowing people autonomy and flexibility in their work and work schedules and you will find a much happier workforce, make this a great place to not only launch a career but want to stay

    Current Employee - Human Resources Manager in Houston, TX

    I have been working at GE full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong performance gets higher responsibility
    Team atmosphere - everyone is in it together
    Great annual performance evaluation process
    Good time-off benefits

    Cons

    Good performance isn't always recognized
    Highly matrixed - too many "bosses", takes too long to get a decision made
    Sometimes you feel very stuck in our your own site, not necessarily part of such an enormous corporation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to truly make things easier, don't just say you're going to simply but actually do it at all levels.
