    I have been working at GE Healthcare

    Pros

    I was at GE Healthcare for almost 3 years and I liked it very much and was very happy. My 2 managers I had were awesome, but GE is so big that when they lay-off people they are pretty big lay-offs.

    Cons

    The company thinks about their stock more than they consider their employees. If the company stock is down at the end of the year they lay-off to try to have a good end of year stock value and report, and when GE lays off they do not go by who works the hardest or most devoted employees, they go by seniority. I got caught up a a big layoff, right before Christmas!!! Merry Christmas right?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company VPs should start treating your employees like real people not just a number and stock where you can get rid of them any time you feel like it. Is is very bad policy!!!!

    Pros

    GE has a highly competitive culture that will push you to be your best and will help you develop your leadership skills.

    Cons

    Metrics and money are the holy grail. That's fine when the company is doing well, but it's been a long time since it's been doing well. It is just a perpetual beat down. No money for business travel, no money for IT investment, no money for training, no money for raises. And every year, we're told "we have to tighten our belts because it's going to be another tough year." And the insurance is just garbage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People used to be proud that they worked for GE. Now it's like serving a prison sentence. Management needs to reinvigorate a culture of optimism. That starts with investing in people and helping them to feel secure (rather than in fear of the next round of layoffs).
