    Pros

    Good company to work at, pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Not really a con, more of an industry standard now it seems, whatever job you get you will be doing at least one or two more. Will have a lot of corporate overhead items to deal with in addition to your main job.

  2. Testing engineer was a reasonably good job here.

    Pros

    I found the work very challenging for system testing. The system are very interesting and the work was not too repetitive.

    Cons

    They work you very hard here and the pace does not let up. When we get close to the target ship dates it would be handy to avoid sleeping.

    Advice to Management

    They should offer more full-time employment activities. The work was fun but they don't seem to hire may contractors for permanent employment.

    For the most part, no leadership.

    Pros

    Big company with lots of places and positions to move to. Lots of cool things to work on.

    Cons

    Only adequate benefits and very poor pay structure. Essentially no work life balance at all, with more and more work being farmed out to poorer places in the world (China, India, Balkans, etc.).

    Advice to Management

    Get better or get out. Too many old-timers who don't know anything about the domain that they're managing has left the company a gutted shadow of itself.

    Pros

    GE Energy invests heavily in training for their employees if they can justify how it will benefit the company. Manager have much discretion to send and pay for employees training. Reasonable work demands and no death marches.

    Cons

    Not the most cutting edge company technology wise. If you want to work with the latest and greatest this probably isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Dispense with the up or out employee rating system. Provide a mechanism for employees to work with newer technologies.

    Pros

    Awesome office environment. Excellent training. Ability to find unique solutions and handle them in the way you choose. Excellent support from management and teammates.

    Cons

    There were absolutely no cons to working here. I would have stayed forever if I could, but life happens.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to the management is to never change. Your management style is awesome and it is reflected in the fact that no one is ever unhappy, and no one has ever left.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for GE very much. There are many opportunities for career advancement as well as opportunities in the states and around the world. They also have many benefits.

    Cons

    There was poor leadership I feel within Energy Management and Digital Energy. There are some major disconnects in the product lines and it impacts the whole business.

    Pros

    Well, it is General Electric so benefits are good

    Cons

    Very high school clique management style, friends of the Executive of this location are put in key positions whether they are qualified or not. They don't care about quality of work only getting the work done. In other words, keep your mouth shut and do the work.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully someone in Atlanta sees this and does some actual digging into job performance reviews, qualifications of people in the higher positions, and pay attention to the email written by former employee that left company. Apparently scathing email was sent to HR after employee left company, however, investigation was covered up and nothing changed.
