    I worked at GE Healthcare (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Get to work on some meaningful technology, work with some interesting people.

    Cons

    Huge on the "cube" culture. No places to rest or relax, most people are interested in just working 9-5.

    Advice to Management

    Bring more of the startup culture to GE to attract interest from young engineers (who are being courted by companies with a much more fun work culture--e.g. free food, nap pods, stimulating work environments, etc).

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good, also there appears to be an abundance of oppurtunies whether in learning new things or possibly another organization within the company

    Cons

    I really wouldn't call it a 'con' but there is a lot of work, but, fulfilling.

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    It's a wonderful place to work if you're not at an entry level position (hourly) if you have a salaried position the benefits are much better. More vacation and sick leave along with more pay.

    Cons

    It can be a high stress place to work. Being such a large company expectations are just as large. Be prepared to give no less than 100% everyday.

    I worked at GE Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent smart passionate people. Good process based culture. Ability to move between organizations if you have the desire and ability.

    Cons

    Stock price for those with Options has gone no-where... golden handcuffs don't work. People now staying in roles for extended periods not allowing the nature promotion that was a hallmark of GEHC.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that the individuals you have targeted for advancement actually have somewhere or some role to advance to or else they will become disillusioned and depart.

    I worked at GE Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    So I have to say that the people I worked with at GE were amongst the smartest that I've encountered. They knew their stuff, and took their roles very seriously. I learned a ton about process, both good and bad, and got plenty of opportunities to interact with end customers.

    Cons

    The reason I ultimately left the company is that they were very slow to respond to change, and often would react to the extreme instead of spending time to understand the problem. Part of their process issues are tied to their attempt to apply one process to all instance of something across the board. This causes all kinds of conflict when it comes to efficiency, i.e. how we have to apply a manufacturing process to software development.

    Advice to Management

    Take an agile approach to your development activities and worry more about what the governing bodies actually asks you to do versus guessing at what they might ask you at some point down the line.
