    Pros

    All around great program for biomeds. Great benefits, plenty of management support, and little trouble getting training. Always new hospitals being added to the GE 'family' so easy to find new opportunities within GE for growth.

    Cons

    Pay is generally lower than in-house biomed programs. Can involve a lot of travel to assist other hospitals within the area.

    Pros

    It's really hard to rate my experience at GE Healthcare, because an employee's experience can vary so greatly depending on their location, function, manager, etc. I started out as a CLP and went into a Product Sales Specialist Role. GE is an amazing company with great leadership. They invest in their employees, whether it's Crotonville, leadership training at the Center for Connected Medicine, or back in Milwaukee at HCI. If you are in sales as a PSS/AM/SAM, etc. your experience will greatly depend on your manager and account community. Generally people that excel at GE on the commercial team and self driven and extremely motivated. Type A personalities do well, and people who understand they must quantify their impact.

    Cons

    Sometimes I felt like I was working for the government. It is a giant company, and they are constantly looking to make numbers look better at the end of the quarter. I saw a lot of good people get laid off in RIFS (reduction in forces) which was always scary. There's a lot of change which I feel like you'd wouldn't expect from a large corporation, but people were always jumping around in positions and division were divided or eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep good talent. Get rid of the waste. There are a lot of people that are kept around and I'm still not sure what they do on a day to day basis. If you want to keep up with the Google's of the world you are going to need to be lean, simple, and attractive to young talent. LISTEN to your sales team. They are the ones in the field with your customers.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity within the company to move up the ladder or to move around to different functions or even a different General Electric business. Great focus on people development (sometimes you just have to ask) - training, coaching, continuous improvement Great level of expertise in the workforce - no matter what area you work in, you can feel confident that your coworkers know what they are doing

    Cons

    High expectations can mean very long hours week after week./Work-life balance can become very skewed towards work. Size/bureaucracy can be a bit frustrating - a lot of time can be spent finding ALL the right people that need to be in the loop to get something approved/done

    Advice to Management

    Some areas have really high churn due to the nature of the role. Could use a little more focus to keep morale high and ensure the workloads stay balance.

    Pros

    The best quality about the job is that I was allowed to be self-paced. I do like being part of a team, but sometimes I do enjoy Marching to my own beat.

    Cons

    I am hard pressed to find anything wrong with that job. The only reason I don't work there anymore is because the department closed down in my then hometown.

    Advice to Management

    I found it tremendously satisfactory that the management had confidence in our output, and pretty much left us to our own devices.
