    Pros

    Exciting aerospace projects to work with and on. Company values employees and tries to do a lot of cook-outs, events, and celebrations. They have a lot of volunteer opportunities to give back to the community. Their goals are very focused. Excellent Pay and benefits. Long-term employment and opportunities to move up.(If you have a degree) Educational benefits up to $5000.00 per year.

    Cons

    Can be hard to work with some employees that have been there for a long time, they are set in their ways and unwilling to change. Management positions are expected to give long hours and no overtime. If in a warehouse/shop environment some of the people can be harsh and rough. A lot of drama. Some shops have unions that are difficult to deal with

    Advice to Management

    Management positions are expected to give long hours and no overtime. Can be hard to work with some employees that have been there for a long time, they are set in their ways and unwilling to change. Plenty of opportunities to move up. They will expect you to change positions ever 2-3 years or else you will be stuck in that role for a long time.

    Pros

    Looks great on resume. Parts and engines are expensive so the dollar amount looks impressive on a resume when you say how much in dollars you have cleared or helped with.

    Cons

    So far I don't have any.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Customer critical issues can cause minor fire fights and high stress but typically manageable. Daily experience very dependent on direct manager or group. Good benefits and perks as a GE employee

    Cons

    Typical hurdles found in large companies that stifle change. The positive twist is that the company does try to empower employees to push back and fight the norm. In actuality however it is hard to do when metrics are not driving right behaviors

    Advice to Management

    Keep challenging metrics and be willing to spend money to save money. Part of empowering employees is giving them resources to succeed.

    Pros

    Benefits, people, feeling like you're a part of a team, advancing yourself through challenges in the office.

    Cons

    Work-life balance, paperwork both are a bit much, but somewhat expected when being part of such a large and successful company.
