    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Lots of really bright people to work with. Many different aspects of the design and manufacturing process on the same site, giving a lot of exposure to many different things

    Cons

    Tends to be a lot of administrative red tape, which is to be expected with a big company. Can just take a long time to get anything done.

    Pros

    GE is a great place to work for a young engineer. I feel like through the Co-Op/Intern program I have both grown as an engineer as well as a person. Some of my most highly regarded mentors are people that I worked with at GE. It is a great place to meet leaders and learn about Aircraft Engines.

    Cons

    Sometimes the sheer size of GE can be overwhelming. As a 20 year old college student starting my first rotation with GE, I felt like what I was doing wasn't being recognized. This is simply due to the massive infrastructure that is GE.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the Co-Op program. This is the program that feeds the future leaders of GE. Also, make sure operators and laborers understand they are important. Nothing worse than having one of the largest and greatest companies in the world and having the people who make the products feel like their opinions aren't heard.

    Pros

    Overall it's an impressive place to work. I feel a since of pride being an employee.

    Cons

    Constant management changes in every position.Makes me wonder if they aren't seeing a good future for the company itself. I wonder about the job security.

    Advice to Management

    Make the right decisions for the company regardless of the complaints! Just keep our job security!
