    Former Intern - Summer Analyst for GECRE Loan Originations in Newport Beach, CA

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

    Pros

    Culture was great in the Newport Beach office. Laid back and exactly what you'd expect from Orange County. Felt a little bit distanced from the traditional intern program in Connecticut, but overall solid experience and would defiantly think about working here full time.

    Cons

    Data management responsibilities, excel for non-experienced individuals and didn't feel like the true GE experience in Newport Beach, CA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More industry specific education, GE and GE Capital primers and educational development, financial modeling, mentor system.
