    Pros

    Flexible working hours, good salary, excellent team

    Cons

    It's huge, so slow to get positive changes done. Politically charged

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the people in the trenches. People make the company successful. Make it a great place to work and success is almost automatic

    Pros

    Some of the most thorough training I've ever had

    Cons

    If a manager doesn't like you, there is nothing to stop a witch hunt. Unfortunately, this used to happen when managers needed to shift blame to others.

    Pros

    For an intern/co-op, GE Healthcare had great pay, great working experience overall, great working environment, great people to work with.

    Cons

    Hire back for full-time or another internship not secure, despite above and beyond end of internship review.

    Advice to Management

    Should focus on developing the internship/co-op pool to full-time employees.

    Pros

    Pay, telecommute. You can run, but you can't hide.

    Cons

    Politics, kissing you know what to get ahead. It's a dog eat dog world and unless you are willing to fight with those around you, you will be gone. Teamwork does not exist here - you are on your own. Good luck getting anything from another group unless you force the issue. Org is very level conscious and what really matters is how things appear, not how they really are.

    Advice to Management

    Can you say teamwork?

    Pros

    Excellent culture, training and development, employee empowerment and accountability. Always innovating and piloting new concepts, processes and ideas to stay ahead.

    Cons

    Large company - slow to no growth if you are mid career. Poor overall compensation growth once you join. Pay much more to folks hired from outside ( who often don't last) as they don't fit in the culture

    Advice to Management

    Keep your top talent happy by paying them well above market.

    Pros

    Great people who have their hearts in what they do and want to do the best for the company and for their customers.

    Cons

    Reactive rather than proactive. Inconsistent strategies to succeed. Insufficient or no support provided to strategic initiatives. No substance behind strategies.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than scripting town hall meetings, leadership should sit down with employees to hear what is really need to drive success.

    Pros

    GE Healthcare is like the verbal fast train - hold on and enjoy the ride but be prepared for the rapid changes and stay on top of things otherwise this is not the place for you ! World class product range which is unique in this field !
    Reputation and many years at GE mean you know what hard work is !

    Cons

    Too many changes per annum. Constant adjustments make it difficult to provide a first class service our customers deserve !

    Advice to Management

    Get pro-actively engaged, analyse the issues and fix them quickly before you hit the wall.

    Pros

    Refined project management methodologies and skilled implementation consultants contribute to successful projects. GE is a large company with the resources to engage any business segment.

    Cons

    Project Managers are now responsible to manage projects across business units. Even if you have a career built on revenue cycle management, you may now also be responsible for projects in imaging or other GE Healthcare business.

    Advice to Management

    Place more consistent bets. I often see upper management placing ambitious bets that we all work towards only to have to shift gears one to two years later when there's a changing of the guard.
