Pros

-Career progressions (can change jobs every 18-24 months if desired)
-Great Benefits

Cons

-Lack of visibility in a huge organization
-Very metric focused work environment. More often than not, decisions are made so people can hit numbers instead of focusing on doing the right thing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Compensation is much better outside the company. Recognize grad degrees and performance when considering compensation

    Pros

    GE is very fast paced and exciting with great company benefits and quirks if you do your job and show promise. GE gives freedom for growth and self development.

    Cons

    Work life balance is challenging and if you don't "fit in" or play the "office politics" your career can go from one of extreme satisfaction to one of chaos and heartache. Although improvement includes challenging "the norm" at times, if doing so involves the wrong individual in authority, your future within the company is grim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider corresponding with the supply chain employees Middle management does not endorse. Their favorites do as they do, thus the reason they are acknowledged. Communicate with the one or two who do not appear successful as they are the ones challenging the norm with out of the box thinking and those employees are actually key in the new leadership and will be needed to take back our position as the number one company globally.

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

    Pros

    Lots of development opportunities, great stuff (on paper), and with the right leadership; you could do well. Leadership off-site and the vision they espouse is outstanding. Not sure how there is a disconnect between corporate and the local plant in terms of leadership values and ideals.

    Cons

    This location's leadership is more about backstabbing and micromanagement. Everyone acted like you were trying to take their job or trying to do their job. They don't believe in getting both sides of the story, just whom they want to believe and push an agenda that they previously set. Steal ideas as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to both sides of the story and follow the facts. Leadership lacks credibility when facts are ignored. Additionally, a good idea is just that, should not feel threatened by good ideas. A place hostile to initiative is doomed to never reach the heights they could.
