    Pros

    Get to know a ton of really smart people; open door policy is real; opportunity to "fix" anything is readily accepted.

    Cons

    Headquarters constantly changing mission - what are we going to focus on today?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication to your employees is much more valuable than to your constituents. They can only help you if they know and understand the long term goals and plans to get there.

    I worked at GE Capital

    Pros

    Professional working environment, globally recognized name. People are hard working and employee engagement is big.

    Cons

    Every other word is an acronym. Pay was sub-average. Everything is about the bottom line, so expect resources to be paper thin while expectations remain sky high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allocate more resources to salary and less to team building. Show a little humility.
