    Pros

    Flexibility, great people, exciting work. You drive your own career, which can be good or bad depending on the type of person. Own your career and you'll be successful.

    Cons

    Work life balance is what you make it. You have to say no sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Don't constrict innovation by making the path treacherous. Clear the way and embrace new ideas regardless of the source and actually put money behind them. This should be a priority with the ever increasing risk of disruption.

    Pros

    - Plenty of room to advance my career
    - Numerous sites available for relocation
    - World class leader in composites manufacturing
    - Great benefits (employee discounts, insurance, retirement, etc.)
    - Great starting salary

    Cons

    It's very easy to "get lost in the numbers" since GE Aviation is such a large company with many facilities all across the world.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let your employees burn out in the high stress, high workload environment. Be sure to invest in small groups as you continue to grow larger.

    Pros

    GE works on big initiatives which can be inspirational to employees. The company has resources, technology, and history on its side.

    Cons

    GE has many of the pains of being a large organization with a history of acquisitions. This can create challenges in communication and business navigation for employees and customers alike, but can be an opportunity for those looking to improve the company to move quickly and solve problems.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive towards innovation and increasing margin through software and services. Be careful not to price yourself out of the market, however. Lately, large revenue misses have been coupled with high profitability which may mean loosing shrinking market share going forward and exhausting/stressing and stretching legacy opportunities.

    Pros

    GE is a very large company and they still find and focus on ways to innovate in order to stay at the forefront of technology and improve products and services for both customer and company benefit.

    Cons

    Being a very large company, one can easily be "just a number" and when a business isn't meeting the bottom line it is often the people that get cut.

    Advice to Management

    GE spends billions on R&D and other programs, and should look for ways to keep employees employed first, and find other ways to cut costs or makeup for business (sometimes management) deficiencies.
