    Pros

    Leadership has clear idea what is happening in the Healthcare market.
    Company is still dominating healthcare products.
    Diversified - and provide mobility to employee to move across businesses and locations.

    Cons

    Leadership is slow in adapting best practices or technology - like we are 5 years behind on Cloud.
    It is only a matter of time the the foreign product catch up to FDA to break the market shares.
    401k is all allocated to GE funds - and growth rate lower than market rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Legacy is paying us now - but it will not pay us forever.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Former Employee - Senior QC Scientist in Arlington Heights, IL

    I worked at GE Healthcare full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Proactive and very knowledgeable people who are passionate about their work
    -Efficient cross functional teams that really correct problems big and small
    -Cross-training affords a lot of opportunity for personal and professional growth
    -"Best in Class" mentality in all things
    -Many volunteer opportunities, networking events, onsite visits from customers/patients who tell their stories
    -Very close knit community of specialized scientists in Radiopharmaceuticals

    Cons

    -Job descriptions are laughably outdated, inaccurate, and relative only to new hires (<3 months)
    -Cost savings often rely on attrition of experienced team members, replaced by contractors (if at all)
    -Ineffective managers often force the best employees to seek outside opportunity for advancement
    -HR is not dependable, knowledgeable, or helpful (and for all intents and purposes is non-existent on site)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Promote from within more often and verify knowledge of managers is appropriate for their role level.
    -Continue to drive process improvements based on employee suggestions
    -Listen to employees who are restless... perhaps they need new challenges or are ready to own a process/project
