I worked at GE full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Benefits excellent. Time off policy very good. Able to research and apply for positions throughout the company in all divisions and subsidiaries. Leadership training very good. GE employees are looked at by other companies and recruiters.

Cons

Very high expectations so be ready to put in some long days. In some areas there is management overkill.
Too much training overlap in some GE business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay in tune with your co-workers. Remember they work for GE, not you.

    Pros

    That I don't work there any longer. Miss this company!!

    Cons

    I can't really recall any cons... this was a FANTASTIC company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They were the best management I have ever worked for. Most companies can't hold a candle to them.

    I worked at GE full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You will be recognized for good work and also for not so good work. You do need to perform to do well as General Electric.

    Cons

    Fairly old school management style; focus on short term goals perhaps in spite of long term success. Systems could use some updating.
