    Pros

    GE Healthcare provides a wonderful environment that grooms next generation leaders and inculcates program execution at all levels of the organization.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are GE's global presence, requiring flexibility of working early or late hours, as well as a pretty sizable workload, which requires the ability to multi-task effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GE management needs to do more to retain top tier talent and shift the balance to more full-time employees versus contractor employees.

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, work/life balance is good. Interesting work. Management by objective. Bright people who want to do the right thing for customers. Willing to take risks with new marketing technologies.

    Cons

    Salary is low compared to similar roles in other companies. A lot of process. Can get lost in such a large company. Still trying to understand the culture since I have not been with the company for very long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide visibility of promotional opportunities. Develop stock purchase plan - help employees become more invested in the companies results. Do a better job of onboarding new employees. Make sure they get the chance to meet with high level management and get introduced to people who they will be working with on a regular basis.

    Pros

    Great people, lots of educational experiences. Very flexible schedule/work environment.

    Cons

    Rotating leadership.
    Constant change.
    Many layers of leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be bold and invest.
    Change is good - allows for evolution. Constant change doesn't leave room to evaluate and understand the next direction.

    Current Employee - Services IT Programs Manager in Salt Lake City, UT

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Just as with any large company, available resources and professional networking opportunities are plentiful. The benefits package, work culture and workers are motivated and great to work with. Excellent work-life balance, if not a little heavy on the life side. Work climate is tedious with about 1000+ staff reduced in the past 18 months.

    Cons

    Tremendous amount of IP has left the comp[any with the large layoffs in the past 18 months Leadership is authoritarian and lacking long term vision. All goals are measured by quarterly results aligned to meet the managers personal bonus incentives with little regard to long term impacts to the short term decisions. Decisions regarding negative outcomes are made with little empirical data.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders please lead. Be involved with your teams, not just the GM you directly supervise. Know the people your GM's manage. MBWA (manage by walking around) - see and feel the "temperature" of the workers being asked to produce so much with so little. When you have a GM who demonstrates authoritarian leadership qualities - immediately get ride of them - one rotten apple will spoil the entire bushel quickly. Directly complement employees that demonstrate a culture of cross-functionality and who encourage and mentor others.
