    I have been working at GE full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You are always encouraged to achieve more. Fast-paced and dynamic. Truly international and multicultural. Great benefits. There are plenty of opportunities if you are hard-working and driven.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is more theoretical than realistic. GE's way of working is not for everybody. You need to run your own PR campaign in parallel to your daily job. Probably the worst HR department I have dealt with in my working life.

    Pros

    Very good at providing opportunities to work across the organisation

    Cons

    If you are not at the top then don't expect any bonuses. The Officers of the company act like gods looking down on the minions.
