    I worked at GE Aviation as an intern

    Pros

    Great individuals to work with who are committed to delivering as much knowledge as possible during a short rotation. There are numerous opportunities to learn more about the aviation industry and the engines that GE builds

    Cons

    Given the complexities of sourcing there is a steep learning curve, but you have very knowledgable coworkers to counteract this.

    Former Intern - Engineer in Pompano Beach, FL

    I worked at GE Aviation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Cost of living in Pompano Beach is low, not much to blow paycheck on. At the office there were occasional corporate health programs where we took a break from work to stretch in the break room. That was kind of fun, I guess. I think they also have a ping pong table.

    Cons

    No real work for interns. I spent several months being told more or less not to touch anything and to sometimes match components on schematics to bills of materials. Not chalenging engineering work is an understatement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give interns more responsibility.

    I worked at GE Aviation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many wonderful people who are a joy to work with. Exciting projects always in the pipeline. Accepting of diversity.

    Cons

    Too many Rube Goldberg processes pretending to be six sigma. Strong belief in PIE (Performance, Image, Exposure) with performance only 10% of the equation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emphasize and reward lean processes. Emphasize performance more over image and exposure. Learn from acquired companies processes, some of which are much better than those at GE.

    Pros

    Good steady people. Level leadership. Ambitious.

    Cons

    Too Conservative. Must continue to diversify to other OEM's

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure there is an adequate balance of home grown vs outside talent in the top end in order to stay nimble.

    Leadership - Always looking for young talent.

    Cons

    Need to be willing to move.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put younger potential leaders with more experienced ones. Far to many mistakes being made not having a mentor for the fast burners.

    To many restrictions when it comes to eating on the floor,and when it comes to safety they try to be to safe which actually make the job more dangerous. Insurance is going down hill fast.

    Pros

    Smart people, mature leadership team, incredible CEO, High performance, excellent media team

    Cons

    Hard to get beyond a point based on meritocracy. Too much of mutual admiration. We are good but not as good as we believe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake it up a bit. Go beyond the tried and trusted. You will be surprised. Also, more humility and less "bullying" should be tolerated. People invest a lot of time and effort and take pride in their work but some people get away with just being rude and obnoxious with others since they are in the "good graces" of the Comms leader. Also, lots of investment in youth at the expense of experience which leads to sense of entitlement.
