    I worked at GE Aviation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting industry and leading edge in field
    Many different opportunities to find your place
    People in the area I worked have become lifelong friends

    Cons

    Runs lean on the resources side so always challenging to meet objectives without working a ton
    Can get lost in upward track of your career unless you manage your career which should anyway

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't run so lean on resources; Work/Life balance and health are sold as necessary but not in line with expectations and resources available

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is the best I have ever seen! Management is very understanding of any personal issues and work closely to help you as much as possible. The staff are incredibly friendly and greatly care about the things they and the company achieve.

    Cons

    The work is not the most stimulating, and can get slow at times making it difficult to progress through the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at GE Aviation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Highly intelligent people, lots of opportunities for lateral or vertical moves (inside and outside the business unit); competitive pay for mid-career transfers, slightly better-than-average benefits

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be challenging if one goes into the New Products space; extremely subjective employee rating system; no process for mid-year performance feedback; lifers seem to have an edge on jobs (who you know).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find and place competent and personable leaders in direct-reporting management roles; often, I have seen highly technical people have management roles for "growth" or "stretching" that don't work on personnel development or career mentoring, or day-to-day coaching.
