    Pros

    Most of the staff in management is tenured so there is a lot of stability in the company, and plenty of chances to move up. Great benefits and plenty of opportunities.

    Cons

    Starting pay isn't as competitive as other employers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to customers, and front line employees.

    Pros

    Great work environment..GE provides an environment that encourages good balance for work and life......encourages activities that don't just focus on the core job function but that allow you to take ownership and be individually responsible for your growth and development

    Cons

    Decision making is too bureaucratic. processes, ideas and views are difficult to improve on.Too many old ways

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more infusion of new employees that will encourage new ideas and new ways to do doing things to ensure that the company stays dynamic and in tune with the fast growing economy

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

    Pros

    Not micro-managed. I was able to take time off when needed and plan my own work schedule (7:30 - 3:30) instead of 8-5 if I needed. Great relationships within the office as well. Good culture all around. I was given the chance to meet all of the interns and they had bonding activities as well. Located in a not so busy suburb of Dallas compared to Downtown.

    Cons

    Slightly less pay than some other departments. Expensive city. No benefits for interns but as is expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe consider talking to other managers to see what they are paying each intern to make sure it is consistent for the work.

    Know the values and demonstrate them.

    I worked at GE Capital full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The culture is very structured and well defined. If you demonstrate the values, you will likely get the results. If you don't get the results right away, demonstrating the values consistently will give you more time to get the results.

    More openness to work-at-home.

    Cons

    The goal of eliminating the bottom 10% of each unit can be problematic. Some units need to lose 20% of their workers,some only need to lose 1%.

    There are parasitic types who fake the values and think work is a fashion show. They last longer than you'd like and they compete internally in a negative way that brings down morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell off divisions more often. Use the cash to build infrastructure in the poor areas of the Americas which will always be politically stable. Keep expanding work-at-home. Employees like it and you don't have to pay for their heat, rent, electricity, etc.
