    Pros

    A relaxed, yet motivated atmosphere in which to work. Always trying to help me further my carreer, while still focusing on day-to-day necessities.

    Cons

    Management could sometimes be a bit cold or cynical, but I could deal with it. They meant well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe be a little less cynical regarding certain topics.

    I have been working at GE Appliances & Lighting full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Outstanding people with integrity. Plenty of opportunity for career growth and personal development. Respectful of work-life balance. Overall a great place to work.

    Cons

    Rather political. Getting a head is more about working the hallway than work done at your desk. Many leaders and very few worker bees.Lack of business direction and leadership by Chip Blankenship has been a torn since 2010.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A healthy look in number of women verse men in leadership. Or minorities for that matter.CEO & his staff are a prime example.

    I have been working at GE Appliances & Lighting full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Talented people to work with, extra events/challenges to take on and great products. Plenty of opportunities to learn and take on additional responsibilities.

    Cons

    From technology perspective, Product management/Marketing is very weak. Sometimes very difficult to accomplish very simple things. Seems like many of the more senior people are just planning to work here until they can get retirement benefits. Extreme sensitivity to diversity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead. Be decisive and not afraid to fail.
