    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Expect more if you work hard, but there is no reward. Rewards go to those in the social circle.

    Pros

    Wages are adequate but you are basically stuck for years at a time with little increase.

    Cons

    Poorly organized. Poor management. Poor communication. Promotions are only for young, fresh out of college types. Management unable / unwilling to do their jobs. No leadership skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing. They won't listen anyway.

    I worked at GE Aviation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can get a Mtn bike after 60 yrs of service!

    Cons

    Was part of a small company that was bought by GE. After purchase GE slammed us with their "culture". Pay stagnated, no more company events, and lay offs. Company created fear by randomly letting folks go with no notice. Their rules prevented us from doing business and cost revenue. Lastly, GE sent in their managers which had no idea what we did and created absurd goals that no one could meet. Terrible company...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what a company does BEFORE buying it. Don't mess with a successful business model. Stop using fear to get demands. We are people not peons...
