    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.

    Pros

    Just as with any large company, available resources and professional networking opportunities are plentiful. The benefits package, work culture and workers are motivated and great to work with. Excellent work-life balance, if not a little heavy on the life side. Work climate is tedious with about 1000+ staff reduced in the past 18 months.

    Cons

    Tremendous amount of IP has left the comp[any with the large layoffs in the past 18 months Leadership is authoritarian and lacking long term vision. All goals are measured by quarterly results aligned to meet the managers personal bonus incentives with little regard to long term impacts to the short term decisions. Decisions regarding negative outcomes are made with little empirical data.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders please lead. Be involved with your teams, not just the GM you directly supervise. Know the people your GM's manage. MBWA (manage by walking around) - see and feel the "temperature" of the workers being asked to produce so much with so little. When you have a GM who demonstrates authoritarian leadership qualities - immediately get ride of them - one rotten apple will spoil the entire bushel quickly. Directly complement employees that demonstrate a culture of cross-functionality and who encourage and mentor others.

    I worked at GE Healthcare full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Managers trust the employees to do their job. No micromanagement. 3 weeks PTO. Christmas parties. 401k matching. Health insurance was almost nothing.

    Cons

    Really big company; you can get lost in the woodwork. Training was not great. There is online training that is annoying to go through. Lots of meetings. Little time to do actual work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the meetings. Let us do our job instead of talking about it.

    Pros

    Skilled employees in various fields. A lot on engineering expertise.

    Cons

    Productivity is stymied by paperwork and over complicated and cumbersome processes. Most processes are paper trails with no emphasis on digital data management. Numerous data systems that require you to re due the same information over and over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better at managing and understanding you are the problem by not understanding your own processes.

    Increase pay to better match the market. Allow for better work-life balance.

    Current Contractor - Software Engineer in Salt Lake City, UT

    I have been working at GE Healthcare as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Most of your co-workers and managers are bright and motivated. You get to work on meaningful and life saving projects with virtually unlimited resources.

    Cons

    Don't work here as a contractor! You will be treated as a second-class citizen. Bureaucracy has retarded progress on every project I've worked on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your contractors better! Don't lock us out of the gym or tell us we can't participate in volunteer day. The simple things go a long way to improving job satisfaction for us.

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Salt Lake City, UT
    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Salt Lake City, UT

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

    Pros

    GE Healthcare, in general, can be a good place to work. The OEC division is very different from the rest of the company. I can understand why they are under a Consent Decree,

    Cons

    This office was the worst office I have ever worked in. The lack of communication between people and offices was deadly. The office management was terrible, with little to no support from those managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train direct managers better, or give them a better understanding of how to manage people with respect and positive reinforcement.

    Pros

    Great, talented people, interesting products. Really had fun working and learning so much during my internship. Felt like a real member of the team.

    Cons

    Waterfall process hampered employee ideas, that could have had a disruptive influence in the marketplace.
