    Pros

    Great branding, great executive level training, great communications

    Great systems.....allow for more sophistication and efficiency.

    Smart people, broad ideas

    Cons

    Behind the façade of the GE Brand......there lies a company that doesn't really care about its people. True class system exists....lots of politics...must have high level sponsors to really succeed. Don't give time for things to work....too many reorganizations.

    Doesn't understand how incentive compensation works......doesn't really understand how the Oil & Gas industry works

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to basics.....right size and then put the right people in charge. Care more about the people side of the equation and eliminate overhead.

    Not bad if you can dodge office politics

    I worked at GE Oil & Gas

    Pros

    Large organization with opportunities available. Decent culture, friendly people. Good benefits. Building itself is not large so everyone knows or recognizes everyone.

    Cons

    Large company with plenty of red tape. Sometimes takes an act of congress to make decisions. Too much turnover it seems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing that hasn't already been shared in house and fallen on deaf ears.

    Pros

    GE Oil & Gas has great potential as a company, and anyone that is hired here will have ample opportunity to move within the company, or look for opportunities at the other GE businesses.

    Cons

    With everything going ton in the Oil & Gas Industry right now, there is very little information share occuring with the employees, leaving many to wonder if/when a major reduction in workforce is coming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More open communication with employees will lead to better morale/retention in the long run.
