    Pros

    GE Capital has been a very good place to work; definitely room for advancement.

    Cons

    With current state of GE Capital being downsized, not a lot of clarity on job retention.

    Be more transparent to lower level folks about transition.

    Pros

    Overall great company to work for with very talented employees. Individuals have considerable amount of accountability and therefore the work can be challenging but very rewarding. The company invests in training talented employees and provided them with opportunities to move around the company.

    Cons

    Some high level executives can be detached from their staff and tends to be high turnover at the senior levels.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your staff and invest in their professional growth.

    Pros

    Good company; great retirement benefits leading to GE lifers; laid back culture; hard to get fired

    Cons

    bureaucratic; easy for teams to hide behind processes; hard to get promoted unless you post for a new position

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees based output, willingness to be courageous and take necessary risks to succeed rather than on how well they "talk the talk"

    Pros

    They are committed to investment in training, provide opportunity to take on new roles & challenges if you prove you can do well in your current role, very execution focused and rewarded based on delivery, very high in flexibility for work / life issues as appropriate,

    Cons

    Leadership is not connected and contradicts each other. Highly matrixed organization that makes things more difficult to get things done. Health benefits are horrible (high out of pocket expenses.) Selling most of the business, so career path is becoming more limited.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more fun place to work. Ever since the regulations started in 2009, it has become a more and more negative environment to be in. For the businesses that are staying with GE, focus on it being a place people want to come to every day. That soft stuff is SO much more important then you pay attention to.
