    I worked at GE Aviation as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I liked the supervisor, there are plenty of mentors to learn from and a solid resume builder.

    Cons

    Too small and under-funded of a department. Large system crashes left workers useless for hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The poorly structured and under-funded department was at fault of the corporation's structure and not really the specific branch. There should be more funding to the IT department and better ways to contact higher-level IT.

    Former Employee - CNC Operator in West Jefferson, NC
    Former Employee - CNC Operator in West Jefferson, NC

    I worked at GE Aviation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay for the area I was in, decent benefits, good community involvement , lots of opportunities to expand as an employee.

    Cons

    Leadership rotates frequently and often leaves a mess for the long-term team members to deal with/correct. There is ample opportunity to grow as an employee but not so much room to grow at your craft. Example: I was a CNC operator there for 6.5 years , this was the only place I ever worked in that field. I thought I had valuable experience but my job hunt over the past roughly 6 months has shown me that GE operates so differently/narrow mindedly from the rest of the machining world , my time there means next to nothing in interviews. You can grow tremendously as an "employee" (committees , presentations, meeting rep, outside volunteer activities, etc.) but I left there being a very basic machine operator , not a "machinist" and I have come to find the hard way there is a very big difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get leaders who want to help grow long term not just pad their resume for 6 months to a year.

    Pros

    Learned a lot of amazing things , pay was very good for an intern, many nice tours of the facility.

    Cons

    Many tasks and software were outdated and slow, causing frustration and wasted time. The full time employees seemed very stressed out . My internship seemed without much of a purpose at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update software and improve efficiency and communication with employees.

    I have been working at GE Aviation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    International business experience. Fantastic product, challenging technical problems.

    Cons

    GE has become, at its soul, a finance company. There is nothing more important here than managing the quarterly results. Nobody does "cost out" better than GE. Cost out of salaries, cost out of health insurance, cost out of office space. If you like the spartan life, you will be a good fit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enough with the buzz words. If I hear pivot, fast works, bucketize (the word is categorize) or beliefs one more time, I think I will lose it. Be imaginative in your use of language. There are thousands of words you bunch of parrots.
