Pros

Generally, GE is impressive on a resume and people who know it from earlier decades have a surprising reverence for the few remaining US employees.

Cons

Bureaucratic nightmares entangle in every possible task. At the present, upper management seems obsessed with cost and risk reduction as the only way to improve the company. All meaningful benefits have been stripped from employees (health, retirement, anything left is so limited as to be functionally useless).

Advice to Management

Give back the benefits from five years ago, or give us pay increases to offset most of the tens of thousands you saved (and we now shoulder) by taking them away.

    Big name company looks good on resume

    100 layers of mgmt and as you move up the layers each layer gets more incompetent, crappy pay, ridiculous emphasis on six sigma which the proof is right there that it is useless

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves

    Pros

    Large company environment with flexible opportunities to move with in. Some really great people.

    Cons

    The great people do not work well in teams and often are not aligned.

    Advice to Management

    Quickly put together systems around how the functions work with each other. Try to identify talent suited for systems environment by looking beyond the layers of smoke screen.
