    Pros

    GE Healthcare provides a wonderful environment that grooms next generation leaders and inculcates program execution at all levels of the organization.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are GE's global presence, requiring flexibility of working early or late hours, as well as a pretty sizable workload, which requires the ability to multi-task effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GE management needs to do more to retain top tier talent and shift the balance to more full-time employees versus contractor employees.
