    Former Employee - Software Validation in South Burlington, VT

    I worked at GE Healthcare full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salary is competitive with area, benefits aren't are good as they used to be, but are still ok.

    Cons

    You are just a number
    Layoffs occur at least once a year
    They don't understand how to manage software process, try and force it into hardware process, which slows down and hampers the process
    It's all about the bottom line. They layoff employees and then can't do the work to create a profit for the next year.
    Hiring and budget freezes occurs after first quarter
    Seem to be hiring more contractors than actual full time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making decisions 6 levels about where the actual work is being done. Listen to the people who are doing the jobs.

    Miserable. Sat in a semi-abandoned cube farm and fought to get any idea of what we were supposed to do there.

    I have been working at GE Healthcare as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Fellow drones suffered with us.

    Cons

    Three or four "project managers" or PMPs for every team member; remote management that didn't really care; no training in the job expected of us; assigned PMP would disappear for days at a time with no contact, etc., etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is so out of touch with the trenches it's laughable. There are about thirty pay levels between a typical staffer and the CEO, who is an Administration favorite. Lose the CEO and his billions and start learning about what your mission is; healthcare IT? Or what?
