I worked at GE

Pros

- Multi-cultural environment with good diversity.
- Good training grounds for professional growth.
- Being able to develop and share best-practices across the business.
- Working with cross-functional teams and matrix management.
- Overall communications from the top including vision and direction were effective.

Cons

- Benefits were slightly better than average, however not as good as GE 'Core' benefits.
- None or very little bonus due to lack of profitability not due to performance! Work very hard and perform well, yet no bonus!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more on products, product-mix, giving the customer what they want when they want it. Work more 'in-the-business' than 'on-the-business'.
