    I have been working at GE Healthcare (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Leadership, priorities, almost everything changes every few months.

    Cons

    GE will never say, "you're working too much." You have to set boundaries, which is difficult when working on global teams.

    Advice to Management

    Quit traveling and focus on employees.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Former supervisors were great to work for. Co-workers were friendly and talented.

    Cons

    The benefit packages seem to cost more and more each year with higher deductibles and United Healthcare were very slow to pay claims.

    Advice to Management

    Change the Health care benefit to a different company.

    Pros

    Access to all of the resources that a large multi national like GE can offer. Responsible for products that make a positive difference in people's lives.

    Cons

    This division of GE has a serious management problem. A lot of people running around patting themselves on the back when things go well and immediately blaming everyone else when they go poorly. Lacking strategic direction beyond "grow sales".

    Advice to Management

    Take a very hard and serious look at the layer of executive and senior executives in the organization. Too many of them are ineffective and relatively incompetent for the roles they are in.

    Pros

    All around great program for biomeds. Great benefits, plenty of management support, and little trouble getting training. Always new hospitals being added to the GE 'family' so easy to find new opportunities within GE for growth.

    Cons

    Pay is generally lower than in-house biomed programs. Can involve a lot of travel to assist other hospitals within the area.

    I worked at GE Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's really hard to rate my experience at GE Healthcare, because an employee's experience can vary so greatly depending on their location, function, manager, etc. I started out as a CLP and went into a Product Sales Specialist Role. GE is an amazing company with great leadership. They invest in their employees, whether it's Crotonville, leadership training at the Center for Connected Medicine, or back in Milwaukee at HCI. If you are in sales as a PSS/AM/SAM, etc. your experience will greatly depend on your manager and account community. Generally people that excel at GE on the commercial team and self driven and extremely motivated. Type A personalities do well, and people who understand they must quantify their impact.

    Cons

    Sometimes I felt like I was working for the government. It is a giant company, and they are constantly looking to make numbers look better at the end of the quarter. I saw a lot of good people get laid off in RIFS (reduction in forces) which was always scary. There's a lot of change which I feel like you'd wouldn't expect from a large corporation, but people were always jumping around in positions and division were divided or eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep good talent. Get rid of the waste. There are a lot of people that are kept around and I'm still not sure what they do on a day to day basis. If you want to keep up with the Google's of the world you are going to need to be lean, simple, and attractive to young talent. LISTEN to your sales team. They are the ones in the field with your customers.

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity within the company to move up the ladder or to move around to different functions or even a different General Electric business. Great focus on people development (sometimes you just have to ask) - training, coaching, continuous improvement Great level of expertise in the workforce - no matter what area you work in, you can feel confident that your coworkers know what they are doing

    Cons

    High expectations can mean very long hours week after week./Work-life balance can become very skewed towards work. Size/bureaucracy can be a bit frustrating - a lot of time can be spent finding ALL the right people that need to be in the loop to get something approved/done

    Advice to Management

    Some areas have really high churn due to the nature of the role. Could use a little more focus to keep morale high and ensure the workloads stay balance.

    Pros

    Excellent training and networking opportunities Great Products

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that you can only push so much before productivity actually declines


  10. Bottom line trumps domain expertise

    Pros

    GE has the financial means to invest in products that match the ever changing healthcare industry. Whether they can focus on the right areas has yet to be seen.

    Cons

    After years of patchwork acquisitions, GE Healthcare continues to put the financial bottom line over employee domain expertise. There have been numerous employee cutbacks and layoffs and the business continues to be spread across multiple platforms and products. Instead of focusing on the true product domain by investing in the employees, they nibble around the edges by touting engineering excellence and process. The people not the process are the keys to success. Leadership hasn't figured that out yet.
