    Pros

    They are very diversified and place a lot of weight into growing and training their employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes they are slow to act, since there can be a lot of red tape to cut through in order to get something done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen, share, and allow employees to make mistakes in order to grow.

    Pros

    Inclusive, invest lots of time and money into leadership program members. Seek to develop employees.

    Cons

    Compensation in dollars is modest, but offset by tons of training and travel.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with as well as a lot of resources to socialize and meet new people after work. Coworkers and upper management I dealt with were very easy to work with and helpful in training.

    Cons

    It took a 2 weeks to get me a computer once I started interning. Because of this, I was doing filing work. Then it took another 2 weeks to get me the software I needed. so in the meantime, I was doing data entry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing: weekly meetings, joining workers for lunch/dinner, etc

    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

    GE is known for leadership development, and lives up to the reputation. As an employee there are dozens of training opportunities throughout the year at your disposal. More importantly, GE Capital employs a culture of people who are willing to mentor and train their direct reports.

    The benefits at GE (Insurance, 401K, Bonus, etc.) are in line with world class corporations.

    Cons

    The size of the company can lead to bureaucratic processes. Documentation and approval is key to our business, but the processes can be redundant and time consuming.

    Pros

    -great benefits
    -great compensation
    -great training
    -large company with strong core values

    Cons

    I can't think of any actual cons except that were specific to my position. I worked as a remote employee, so I had to figure out a lot of things on my own, which is fine with me. Capped bonus could have been better. It didn't matter if I exceeded my volume goals, it capped out at 100%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, great management team

    Pros

    Wide range of businesses and roles.
    Very good career opportunities. It is supported by the management to move between departments or even between different businesses.
    There is a possibility to travel a lot between different locations
    The company puts a lot of resources to provide training for employees, professional development is only limited by one's energy and imagination.

    Cons

    The management initiates changes very frequently, from time to time and it takes a lot of time to catch up with them.
