    Pros

    Provides some of the most interesting work in the Bay area. The company is giving an earnest attempt at trying to ramp up GE to Silicon Valley standards in terms of pay, work-life balance, and culture. Work hours are reasonable, not too many weekends spent heads down. Stable job for older people.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency -- they sell you a great vision when hiring, then do something completely different when you are there. Product management is a joke. Agile is loosely adapted due to internal GE processes, creating a terrible planning workflow. Also, too many meetings. No workout room. San Ramon location creates a terrible commute from anywhere that isn't San Ramon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop catering towards the executives are treating employees like lower-class citizens. Don't build a million dollar design center and keep the keys stashed away. Build true innovation, not just the image of it.
