    Pros

    Loved everything about working here. The people are great.

    Cons

    Wasn't a con for me, but this is not a place to work if you do not like to work hard. If you enjoy being kept busy you will be happy.

    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

    Pros

    Great organizational culture, autonomy, and independence. Great benefits including no-capped tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    Limited resources and staff lead to burn-out and projects missing deadlines, or management missing their 'drive'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire additional staff, even if seasonal, to get through large projects. Ensure resources are available to quality staff, especially management, otherwise, you will continue to lose quality human capital.
