    Pros

    GE is so large and well respected that even if you decide it's not for you and you leave after a few years, others will be impressed with your experience there based on the reputation of the company. There are many, many jobs available within the company so you could potentially make it your place to grow throughout your career.

    Cons

    Though the company claims to promote work life balance, it's understood that you're expected not to be a "9-5'er". Any significant advancement requires working a lot of unpaid overtime. Only those who devote almost all of their waking hours to the company have real chances of "success".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think managers could do a much better job of managing resources, meaning trianing employees properly instead of the sink or swin methodology and not having one person do the job of 3.

    Pros

    Interesting technology and work. The direct people you work with are great.

    Cons

    Impossible to meet deadlines, lacking resources, and constant "help" to meet deadlines. You have to understand GE treats employees as a commodity and once you understand that everything makes more sence

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    either say this is the way it is deal with it and stop asking for our opinions, and what we are unhappy with when you have no intension of doing anything with the data
