    Pros

    Vast opportunities in many different areas once you get your foot in the door.

    Cons

    Leadership/Management promotes in their likeness, resulting in one dimensional executives. Which is fine when all is going well. If they all lack vision and the ability to course correct in difficult times, it makes the business weaker than it really is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting in "your" likeness and pedigree. Sometimes substance is better than style.

    Pros

    Deep pockets/ resource rich/ global reach. Relative stability & security. Affords chance to explore meaning of
    modern organization extending world-wide. Dynamic upper level management.

    Cons

    limited individual opportunities / flip side of global is being remote "outpost" / company motto...imagination at work
    not applicable here.../ a healthcare company which reduces employee medical benefits seems insecure of its own
    future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ultimately, healthcare is delivered one patient at a time: let us shape our efforts for innovation and growth ever
    mindful to help those tending our ill.

    I worked at GE Healthcare (less than an year)

    Pros

    While I worked at GE I received little help managing my shop from my District manager, but that created an environment for high paced learning of systems and operations.

    Cons

    Management wouldn't provide overtime for times of large workload. Management would rather pull technicians from other shops who are also behind on services. I understand that that effects their quarterly bonuses. Nice incentive for them, but site managers and techs get the short end of the stick most of the time. Requesting overtime shouldn't be similar to pulling teeth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on individual site support. Offer more over time when needed.

    Pros

    There is a lot of potential for this company even though we avoid doing anything innovative. Results based work is appreciated here rather than just punching the clock which is nice.

    Cons

    It seems as though everyone is scared to think outside of the box due to previous regulatory issues.
