I have been working at GE

Pros

Great work-life balance in certain positions, leadership proactive about growth opportunities and employee evaluations. Consistent performance review cycles and reasonable discussions on development needs.

Cons

Seems that the opportunities exist only for engineers in most roles excluding HR and Finance. Salary tends to be lower than other similar roles, but the 'brand' of employee is outstanding.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to support your employees, especially in their own personal goals. Creating a more flexible work environment generates loyalty of employees to the company.

    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'.

    -Engineers that I work with actually use their engineering degree.

    Cons

    -Promotions are given based on years of working experience and age, rather than technical merit and leadership abilities.

    -Healh care plan is now expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Be more flexible with work arrangements
    -Too many tasks require you to know a guy to get stuff done. Change the systems to allow engineers to be more autonomous.
