Life at GEHC

Strategic AR (Former Employee)
Burlington, VT

I worked at GE Healthcare full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCo-workers were wonderful and the flexibility to work from home was great.

Cons- medical benefits has recently gone down in regards to cost
- communication, if any, was rare across the board. I was part of a focus group to increase the communication. We identified ideas but none were fully implemented
- work life balance is way off balance. The employee reductions have increased work loads of the remaining team members. I know a lot of people that put in additional hours after the normal work day
- You are only a number to GE and that is all that they care about.

Advice to Senior ManagementA lot of wonderful co-workers have left for greener pastures in recent years. Upper management needs to listen to the people in the trenches so they can retain employees

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

Good company with some caveats

Software Support (Former Employee)
Burlington, VT

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

ProsMature, dedicated workforce; flexible work schedules; great benefits; liked my job there a lot minus the frenetic pace and often unreasonable expectations

ConsVery high targets; expected to meet customer sat while workforce is being reduced and existing staff are overloaded; minimal formal training, must self-train on most products that you are expected to support, then you are evaluated on your ability to pull info from other people who have been there a long time and have the knowledge only in their heads

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good until I got laid off

Principal Software Design Engineer (Current Employee)
Burlington, VT

I have been working at GE Healthcare

ProsCompensation is high for this area. If you want to work in a very structured environment with heavy process overhead (Lean Sixth Sigma, internal GE program structure), and can land a good job, then this is the place for you.

ConsIt's great if you like the heavy bureaucratic process environment, until the area you work in is targeted by upper management for contraction. Unfortunately with all of the overhead, less time is available for actual innovation. That's what is killing the product I used to work on.

Advice to Senior ManagementGE is full of secrets and therefore the rumor mill runs wild. Be more transparent and realize that in healthcare systems, the assets you have are in people's heads. When you lay them off, it's gone and you can't always get it back.

Flexible

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Burlington, VT

I worked at GE Healthcare

ProsGenerally flexible work arrangements. Solid company with good reputation. Decent benefits. Great facilities, cafeteria, lots of parking, etc. Most people are dedicated to their work.

ConsCommon complaint is that quality is low on priorities despite how they say it is. Big company with lots of reorganizations and outsourcing. Social aspect drops quickly in some departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementComplete projects well and assign projects with concentrated resources.
