    I worked at GE Capital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company has fantastic benefits, decent pay and career opportunity growth. If you keep your mind focused on the daily tasks you'll be just fine!

    Cons

    They offer undesirable schedule shifts, an unprofessional office and hard work and work ethics go unrecognized from Senior Management. If you express that you want to grow with the company, you MUST play their politics game, I think is extremely unprofessional, but is typical in a large corporation such as Synchrony Financial, formerly known as GE Capital.


  3. Great place to work until GE decided to sell

    Pros

    Love the GE culture, the great work/life balance, free gym, great benefits. Lots of opportunities for learning and challenging opportunities.

    GE Capital will shrink with all the divestitures, so it won't exist as a current company any more in the next couple of years.

    Pros

    GE Capital was an excellent company to work for. They had excellent benefits such as paid vacation and paid sick leave, great retirement benefits including being vested after 5 years of employment. Additional benefits included reimbursement for education pertinent to current position or potential position. They also provided training related to current position.

    Cons

    You had to be ready for change. Sometimes you did not know what would be changing next. Job schedules were not flexible.

    I have been working at GE Capital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learning a lot by doing what my prior Mgrs in prior orgs did. Pay is ok. Benefits are one of the best. Systems are robust in industry, which promotes efficiency that doesn't rely on Excel templates.

    Cons

    There is no life/work balance but scary part is that people are okay with it. Terrible bosses 2 out of 4 in my 1.5 yrs. the business is in sell mode and lots of jobs are being eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to advocate and be proactive with employees. You hear "I should have more of these meetings.." But doesn't happen. HR needs a revamp!
