    Great for Young Professionals

    Engineering Co-Op (Current Employee) Clearwater, FL

    ProsGreat mix of sites and products. Small business and large business alike. If you want as much work as you can handle, in just about any variety, then this is the place for you for at least five years out of college.

    ConsSome of your accomplishments never really make it up the ladder because of how large the company is. Also as an intern, going overseas is very difficult. In a large company a lot of "bad management" can slip by without any of the executives noticing.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    FP&A Analyst (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsOffice culture is usually good but can be dependent on site/business; market leader; ability to continue growing; training; gaining a good "toolkit"; continuous evaluation and ability to change jobs for those that are good performers; good people to work with and for

    ConsDepending on the function, may need to be mobile to work your way up in the company. This is difficult if you want to stay in one location.

    Invests in their employees and has great talent

    Senior Sales Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGE has the resources to move mountains. The vacation time is great. Salary is very good. Internal training and career development course offerings are excellent.

    ConsThe company's structure is very matrixized. It often can be cumbersome and complicated to get things done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue the efforts on simplification.

    Pretty good company over all to work for

    Warehouse Person (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsAfter almost 15 years for this company I have learned many things and have made many friends. The benefits were good and the money wasn't bad.

    ConsFavoritism, it was hard getting a promotion because I found out it was not so much of what you knew, it was who you knew.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou should promote people who deserve the job, not hire someone off the street that has no idea of the job. Also you should pay temps more and hire the good ones sooner to be able to keep quality people.
