Squeeze your workforce

Lead Engineer (Current Employee)
Schenectady, NY

Pros- It is a large company with opportunities to move around to a diverse set of technologies. - The benefits are fairly good. -Good resume builder. -GE Leaders of Tomorrow is a great way to network with fellow young employees. Travel benefits are good. - Flexible work arrangements are available to those with special needs.

ConsPay is significantly below the industry average (in my opinion) for engineers with little to no bonuses. Work is generally focused on maximizing profit on existing technology rather than investing in innovation. Overtime pay is limited. Employees are encouraged to work casual overtime in office without compensation.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay up. Look to companies like Google who employ perks that spur imagination and encourage group cohesiveness.
