    Pros

    Most of the staff in management is tenured so there is a lot of stability in the company, and plenty of chances to move up. Great benefits and plenty of opportunities.

    Cons

    Starting pay isn't as competitive as other employers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to customers, and front line employees.

    Pros

    Great work environment..GE provides an environment that encourages good balance for work and life......encourages activities that don't just focus on the core job function but that allow you to take ownership and be individually responsible for your growth and development

    Cons

    Decision making is too bureaucratic. processes, ideas and views are difficult to improve on.Too many old ways

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more infusion of new employees that will encourage new ideas and new ways to do doing things to ensure that the company stays dynamic and in tune with the fast growing economy

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

    Pros

    They try to keep the interns working light, only 45-50 hours a week. Exposure to management, plenty of opportunities to expand your network, helpful people.

    Cons

    Some of the work can be monotonous but that's life as an intern sometimes. That's about it.

    I have been working at GE Capital full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They provide challenges and opportunities for growth to young professionals.
    They also have a rotation program that allow employees to gain experience and learn how to manage and be a high-level performer.

    Cons

    1) Intense pressure and competition among employees. Managers frequently lose their tempers.
    2) They keep an eye on both age and pension vesting date for employees. They like to cut those employees that are either getting beyond certain age or that are close to getting vested.
    3) There was reverse discrimination when I was there. The company was giving more priority to diversity mix than to merit.

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

    Pros

    Experience - Developed great analysis, business writing, and communication skills. Travel - If you want to see interesting, albeit off the beaten path, places this a great role.

    Cons

    Advancement bottleneck - You'll be competing with your coworkers for only a few openings that you may or may not want anyways. Everyone for themselves - Your work needs to be airtight because if something goes wrong people are compelled to assign blame to avoid a reputation hit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate what value the group adds to the organization as a whole and try to limit workload
