Good culture and honest people

IT Specialist (Current Employee)

I have been working at GE Capital full-time

Prospeople integrity, decent work life balance, smart people, inspiring business leaders

ConsPolitics can be annoying, like many big companies.. Management can be sometimes risk adverse. GE Capital outsourced IT way too much in the 2000s because it was not "core business", and now trying to catch up on IT skills because software is eating the world.

FP&A (Current Employee)

I have been working at GE Capital as an intern for more than a year

ProsExposure...responsibility...socials...reporting...growth for people who have a passion for finance

Great Company to Freelance For As an Oracle Consultant

Technical Team Leader (Former Employee)
Leeds, England (UK)

I worked at GE Capital as a contractor for more than a year

ProsExposed to latest IT technology and had access to great developers with lots of experience. I also had a great project manager who was very effective at insulating the team from internal political issues.

ConsTechnical team had a very busy back office, so you could sometimes feel anonymous. The company tried to compensate by organizing team building / bonding events, such as go cart racing + dinner at companies expense. Made us contractors feel valued members of the tech team !

Lost in Decentralization

Senior Project Manager (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at GE Capital full-time for more than a year

Pros-It's GE and GE is friendly
-London canteen is good
-London reception team are nice
-cool building

Cons-Decentralized and under leveraged
-Good ol' boys club
-Leadership and ability do not co-exist
-Common sense does not exist
-Red tape and process is more than obscene
-Not sure what HR does
-Many interns, contractors, contractors from India in India and a few "leaders"
-The company is essentially powered by India, interns and contractors, soon F/T employees will not be needed

Advice to Senior Management-be careful how much work you actually outsource to India
-be careful how much knowledge rests with non-employees
-you could save some money if you leveraged spend and harmonized with the platforms (countries)
-find out what HR actually does please

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
