I have been working at GE

Pros

Opportunity to advance and leadership programs are the best in the world. Leadership values and committment to company are evident in their success

Cons

Being such a large company can lead to communication issues and can be slow to make decisions. But overall decisions are made for long term goals

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to provide opportunities for leaders and managers to advance. The people are the company and continue to develop their skill sets

    Great place to work (before purchase by Swiss Re) and GE (the parent company) is a great employer.

    I worked at GE

    Pros

    This was a company that consistently rewarded employees' exceptional performance, unlike Swiss Re. GE treated employees with respect and as human beings, not as fungible commodities. The benefits were good and pay was commensurate with industry standards. Even though GE Insurance was purchased by Swiss Re (not a change for the better especially after laying off 20% of the GE staff as soon as the deal went through), I recommend GE in general as an employer.

    Cons

    Being part of a massive corporation can be challenging in terms of communication. The pension/401(k)/stock savings plan structure was a bit complicated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company was purchased by Swiss Re in 2006, so there is no longer any GE Insurance leadership to advise.

    Pros

    1. Excellent training.
    2. Competitive environment.
    3. Unlimited opportunities.

    Cons

    1. Opportunities usually mean transfer to eastern cities.
    2. Some "old" divisions being sold or down-sized: lighting, appliances, plastics.
    3. Presently Company is going through a rework back toward original strategies: engineering competency, excellent new product development and deemphasizing the financial element of the Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.
