    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for growth, competitive salary & benefits, challenging work. Comprehensive training program. You can go anywhere in the world with GE if you are willing to put in the hours and be flexible about moving. Lots of different businesses to get involved in so you really never have an excuse to stop learning and growing.

    Cons

    Very long hours, lots of bureaucracy. Sometimes the simplest things are the most difficult to get done due to all the layers in the company.

    Pros

    You have full control over your career path. Personal growth and taking on leadership roles is encouraged. The company likes those that can think outside the box. Company is getting leaner and more agile, but still too top heavy.

    Cons

    Overly aggressive project schedules which impacts your work/life balance. Minimal salary increases. No stock options or bonuses. Too many meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hand out perks for those that put in the extra effort. Minimize the number of meetings.

    Pros

    GE is a great place to work and you will be surrounded by many peers who are among the elite A-type personality performers. There are tons of opportunities within GE and with it being such a worldy company, the opportunities afforded are almost limitless.

    Cons

    The culture can be a very "sink or swim" mentality, so coming in from the outside can be tough as there is not much guidance or instruction given. They expect you to figure it out. Also, in order to really move up in one's career path, you really need to be open to moving around in terms of location in order to open up your available opportunities.
