    Pros

    Great people, Safety is important.

    They will not train people who are eager and willing to learn CNC machines, even though they went to school for it.

    I worked at GE Power & Water full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity in big company. Great leadership and technical training opportunities available. Worldwide company if you want to explore those opportunities.

    Cons

    Medical benefits not so good. The more you make the more you pay for benefits. Eye coverage is all "doc in a box" eye places. Some senior management decisions appear to be very short sighted in nature. Some areas are union.

    Advice to Management

    Better access to equity compensation for employees. Better communication of strategic direction. Anything to lower cost of benefits for employees would be good.

    Pros

    Worked for GE's Power and Water EID internship program. Pays very well, was exposed to several industries to find my niche, very interesting, technical, and challenging work, but everyone at GE is there to help and guide you! Best engineering firm to work for and I highly recommend the EID Engineering program for an internship.

    Cons

    Slow growth in some of the fields, so need to find the right field to work for if you are fast-paced.

    Pros

    Great products, very successful company, great differentiated technology, lots of passion on the team

    Cons

    Sometimes gets stuck in the bureaucracy of being a part of a large organization. Can move way too slow at times.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the separate P&L's to chart a course of their own and watch them fly

    Pros

    marvelous starting vacation, paid sick time, and "other".

    Cons

    Management or lack thereof. Same old complaint, management doesn't seem to care blah blah but seriously start hiring management that have business degrees, not engineering degrees-no brainer.

    Advice to Management

    Gain empathy- promote from within.
