Bureaucratic Nightmares Abound, Business is Obsessed with Cost and Risk Reduction

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Challenge work that allows you to stretch your current abilities.
    Fun industry to be in.

    Cons

    Extensive means you spend a lot of non-productive time just trying to figure out who does what.
    Understaffed means everyone has to put in extra hours to get things accomplished... regularly working late nights, early mornings and weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire more people, quickly.
