    I worked at GE Oil & Gas as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Huge company. You are able to meet with people from all levels of positions. I was able to meet the plant manager at my manufacturing site.

    Cons

    Union environment makes it difficult to implement changes. Management is not on the same page as the labor force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complete projects and do not stop half-way to focus on other projects.

    I have been working at GE Oil & Gas full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are many career paths at GE. The people are tremendous. Integrity is top-of-mind. The job has been demanding but mostly rewarding.

    Cons

    Like any large company, you can get lost in the shuffle. Sometimes, the wrong people get promoted, and the right ones get overlooked. The pace and agility is not always fast enough to react to the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Though we work for a big company, we should still be able to be nimble at the Tier 3 level. We will follow decisive and fast-paced leadership.

    I worked at GE Oil & Gas as an intern

    Pros

    Lots of emphasis on leadership growth, very easy to contact anyone in any of the GE businesses. I did not contact the CEO, but was able to interact quite a bit with the CIO & CTO of the company, everyone that worked there was very nice.

    Cons

    The pay felt low for an Oil & Gas position

    I have been working at GE Oil & Gas full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and exciting growth potential. On the cutting edge of LNG production. Domestic and international travel. An excellent IT program that provides all the tools you could need whatever your role is.

    Cons

    Salary offered was based on "plenty" of overtime, which hasn't been the case. A lack of a structured training program for new hires. Managers are overwhelmed and don't know what tools are available to them. A recent acquisition that has plenty of growth potential, but is currently suffering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please sit down with your managers, mentor and train them. Your business and product are suffering, you're loosing good people. Identify the problem, develop a solution and implement.

    Pros

    The flexibility of work hours along with great benefits allows for a work/life balance. I don't see many opportunities in my personal business line for personal and career growth. Co-workers are nice.

    Cons

    I feel compensation is not equal nor high across departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cultivate your team members to allow for their career growth.

    I have been working at GE Oil & Gas as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    GE is really great about hiring women engineers. Most women engineers I have ever seen at a company. Friendly coworkers many in their early to mid 20s. GE Oil and Gas also offers great rotational training programs that many other oil and gas companies do not provide.

    Cons

    New company in Oklahoma City still working out somethings since they are so new. Some training programs require relocation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managment was very friendly and welcoming. Coperate managers could be more organized a provide interns or new hires with more information regarding thier work timelines and expectations.

    Pros

    GE is frequently recreating itself. Employees are encouraged to take risks and continue moving forward. Other benefits include Company values, professional development opportunities, global diversity, cross business technologies and a flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Frequent change. It is important to be adaptable and flexible. That can be a pro or con for some. GE is not a place to get "comfortable" but a place to challenge yourself.
