    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to move around the organization.
    Great leadership training in Crotonville.
    Work can be challenging as the problems are complex.
    For a large organization it is generally very well run and is working to be more agile/lean.

    Cons

    HR and Finance have too much influence in the organization.
    As a larger organization it can be frustrating get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less reliance on contractors, you don't get what you pay for. It cost more than is capture on the P&L statement.

    I worked at GE Healthcare

    Pros

    Many many resources at your disposal. If you work hard you will go far with the company. Benefits are great compared to other companies in the industry. Many discount perks such as electronics, software, wireless service, etc.

    Cons

    Organization structure very dynamic and in constant flux. Less support from senior management. Too many on-line training requirements. Employee encouraged but at times expected to engage in extracurricular activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a smother/longer on-boarding or transitioning process for a new employee, because there are too many processes and too much to absorb in a given time.

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

    Pros

    - You get to work on products that quite literally save lives every day
    - Good leadership development programs and some of the brightest people in the world as your coworkers

    Cons

    - Lots of red tape and bureaucracy. Senior leadership and front line managers and staff get it and are trying to improve but the middle layers of management are holding back from change
    - Short term focus (quarterly results) tends to sacrifice long term investments in growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard to assess what kinds of leaders we have in middle management. Even one bad senior leader can demotivate entire segments of the organization

    Pros

    Generous holiday/PTO, Flexible schedule, Work From Home. Opportunities to apply from within and tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Executive management tends to make decisions based on bottom line without concern for the people needed to make them happen. Many are working 70+ hours per week trying to keep up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider how your ideas impact the very people you rely on to make them come to fruition.

    I worked at GE Healthcare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Terrific co-workers - could not ask for better. Very flexible work from home policy. Salary is excellent, pleasant surroundings. Massive amounts of work, you will never be "bored".

    Cons

    Leadership does not understand amount of work necessary to accomplish last minute changes - they do not abide by processes - thereby putting tremendous pressure on teams since timeline does not change. Teams are squeezed from both ends to accomplish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership needs to abide by the processes set in place so that workflow works! Either that or allow that the timelines may change.

    I worked at GE Healthcare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive Salary, challenging work. Flexible work arrangements are informal and usually encouraged since they will get their 50+ hours from you regardless of how you work.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy. Expectation that you will work 50+ hours per week or you must not have enough to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the senior executives who continue to get re-shuffled. Many of them are good at navigating GE but don't have industry depth.

    Excellent pay and benefits, great coworkers and teams. Good quiet atmosphere, volunteer opportunities as well as opportunities to grow and advance.

    Cons

    Very little in the way of onboarding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a strong onboarding program. With such a complex organization, new hires need clear outlines and go-to individuals or sites.
