    I have been working at GE Capital full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    GE Capital is a great place to work especially if you thrive in a fast pace, innovative, and hard working environment. You are surrounded by incredible talent in an environment that promotes learning and expects flawless execution, but with freedom to innovate and bring creative ideas. There is a willingness to leverage emerging technology and there is a focus on simplification across all businesses and functions. Leadership/colleagues are supportive, albeit competitive. There is some bureaucracy, but no more than any other large company.

    Cons

    Commuting in Farfield County CT is a challenge. GE culture is somewhat unique and takes a bit of work to understand and navigate. Building a personal brand is an important component of success.

    Since the GE location in Cedar Rapids is considered a call center, the salaries are alot lower than other local companies with the same jobs.

    I am a long-time GE soldier, so I would probably write a biased review

    Pros

    The Company does or thrives to do the right thing. Look at the transformation it has gone through since the '08 crisis.

    Cons

    Difference between HQ and local business units working culture. (HQ is far more professional vs. local heroes and celebrities going around in the sub-businesses)
