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 Management

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

    Pros

    GE invests in it's finance employees with programs such as FMP and Corporate Audit Staff. The portofolio of GE businesses across both the Capital and Industrial industries is limitless and a core set of GE finance skills enables long-term employees move among them.

    Cons

    The salary and benefits GE offers do not match the number of hours finance employees typically work. The company is pushing to make work easier by simplifying processes, but in such a large company, nothing is ever simple.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are not given the freedom to make decisions and be held accountable to those decisions. You continually have to go through layers and layers of approvals. If something doesn't pan out, the person on the bottom is held accountable even if leaders have approved their decision but have done nothing to help clear roadblocks.
