A well respected company externally

Marketing (Former Employee)

I worked at GE Healthcare full-time for more than 8 years

ProsExternally it never looks bad to work for GE regardless of what internally issues you will have to endure. Great leadership training and career opitions.

ConsIt can be a toxic enviroment depending on what team you are on and who is on the leadership team. They tend to hire all Type A personalities that are gunning for eachothers job. If you manage to find a sponsor, you will do well. Leaders do not always do a good job of promoting their teams - many are too focused on making themselves look good.

Advice to Senior ManagementCare more about your team. As a leader, you will shine and have to work less with a great team vs. focusing all your energy on making yourself look good.

Diversity is not just about different backgrounds and race, it's also having a team with varied personalities. Don't just hire people that want to be the next Jeff Immelt - it creates a toxic enviroment where no one cares about helping their teammates.

De-evolution from energizing growth engine to a shrinking bureaucracy

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Waukesha, WI

I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time for more than 10 years

ProsUsed to be a great growth company - as close to a true meritocracy as I've seen; a place where promotions were awarded those who performed while exhibiting clearly described company values. GE still obviously has significant resources to apply to product development and corporate improvements. Likely still a good place for recent grads to start their career - just stay under the radar and don't get deluded into thinking you'll retire here (unless the next round of senior leadership makes major directional and cultural shifts).

ConsWe used to actively fight against bureaucracy - yet now it seems we have a critical mass of these type "leaders" in control and it often feels like we're spiraling out of control. The communication disconnect between those who perform and those who supposedly lead has become a chasm - and appears to be widening. The "leaders" pay lip service to listening to employees - yet I get the feeling they are more corporate robots than human beings... and seem unable to actually listen and believe what people might want to escalate. The word dictator comes to mind when thinking of multiple senior leaders. Where we used to be a collaborative force building careers & closely integrated at several organizational levels... we've become individuals in JOBS doing what self proclaimed smart people condescendingly demand. Quite a shame. Open loop systems are doomed to spiral out of control.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn humility. You DO NOT know it all. Your people are the life blood of your success. Listen to them. No. Really listen to them. Check your ego and your ideas at the door. Actively listen, question, echo what you hear and ask if that's what people are concerned or excited about. Stop acting like you listen via silly surveys. Get out and talk with individuals. Be human. Once you've actually HEARD your people, then add your ideas and spin. Set a direction, then coach and guide rather than dictate. Stop the lip service about the importance of collaboration - unless you'd like to participate (or at least get out of the way).
