    Pros

    Good feeder for full time FMP position. The culture in the office was helpful and friendly to the interns. Interns got work that was actually meaningful. Really great training.

    Cons

    The training was great but there could have been even more. Some manager were more engaged than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the interns busy with work that is meaningful. Make sure managers push for weekly meetings to catch up with interns.

    Pros

    Fun working environment, very friendly. Free fruit and drinks, beautiful office! Best benefits ever.

    Parking downtown is a bit of a challenge. Workspace is open table, not everyone gets a desk.

    Pros

    great people to work with, salary ok, online training opportunities, good benefits and vacation time

    Cons

    Upper management gets the pat on back for all your hard work, micromanagement, lacking leadership, training for your job is half fast and you have to figure out the rest with limited resources and not too many willing to help further. then you're "spoken to" for making errors. lack of knowledge no excuse. Sink or swim attitude. Unrealistic expectations. lots of "pass the buck" "Simplification" has made it more difficult to meet expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you're promoting leadership among your employees provide them with the tools necessary. Don't just say you're there to help develop people - put words into action. Learn to trust your employees are doing the job you hired them to do in the first place. If employee has done the job and has had great performance reviews there's no need to micromanage. It's counter productive and it discourages them from wanting to move ahead in their careers.

    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.
