I worked at GE Rail Services
Pros – Working for GE allows to a lot of opportunities to move around, especially for interns. There are a number of programs available that allow for quick advancement and rotational positions. GE is a big company, but my location was pretty felt small and sedated. Being a intern I don't really know what kind of benefits full time employees get, but I get the impression that GE benefits are pretty decent. I liked my coworkers.
Cons – Unfortunately, as an intern I didn't get much interesting work to do. I didn't get much real useful experience. Employee services like Payroll and IT are centralized and/or outsourced, and are thus a nightmare to work with. It took a week or two just to get setup to use a computer, and a few more just to get a paycheck.
Advice to Senior Management – I didn't really have interactions with senior management.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at GE Rail Services full-time for less than a year
Pros – Competitive salary and immediate vacation benefits is a bonus. Outside of the local GE shop, there are opportunities to move around the company if you can last 18 months to be eligible to transfer.
Cons – Lack of direction from upper management. Long hours working 60+ hours a week. Multiple single point failures in employee staffing. Local GE management sets unrealistic expectations for craft production. Mid Level management supervises craft that are represented by labor unions and are unable to hold anyone accountable. Understaffed workforce+unrealistics and unachievable goals=miserable workforce. Very high turnover in lead technical specialists results in low level of knowledge. Since being hired within the last year, four personnel have left this location.
Advice to Senior Management – Hold each individual accountable for their job duties. Everyone held on a different standard. Formulate a plan and listen to you first level supervisors.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at GE Rail Services
Pros – Great Pay and benefits, work - life balance ,
Cons – Very unproductive environment, needs to go through a real " lean " program, internally focused , not on the customer. Top down management is obsolete. Too many VP's, need to simplify and reduce needless meetings, reports and presentations.
Advice to Senior Management – Being one of the most respected companies, it was disappointing to be part of GE Rail. There are alot of brilliant, talented people working there, but they need to be unleashed and manage, not report all the time.
