    Pros

    Great company to work for, always a lot to learn on the job. Projects are challenging and rewarding.

    Cons

    With such a big company, it is easy to get lost in the crowd. Always have to outperform peers to be recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a nicer work environment to work in. Allow more fun at work along with work. Encourage balance.

    Pros

    GE has evolved! It has grown from a 'corporate company' to a culture that encourages individual thinking. I have never worked at a company like GE where you are rewarded for your accomplishments and work. GE is evolving their culture to be a modern company and to build an environment where I can have a great work/life balance and therefore bring my best 'self' to work.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that working in a large company you do have to figure who you are and where your career should go. It has to be a personal decision and push. GE will help but you have to be driven in a big company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive evolution we are seeing!

    Pros

    Good training/leadership development program, exposure is great. The company clearly values the program participants and sees them as the future of the company's finance leadership.

    Cons

    Politics, but that is the case for any large company. As an FMP, sometimes folks that didn't come through the program aren't as keen on the participants.

    Advice to Management

    The program is good, was a great career launcher wishing the company and outside of the company if someone chooses.

    Pros

    they understand why they are in business and that people make the difference. they invest more in their people than any other company.

    Cons

    If you are not an "A" player, you need to work somewhere else as you will not have many opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on building people. Continue to build focus on customer over shareholder value.. By focusing on customers, you will be able to keep your offerings in-line with what the market demands.. Shareholder value is an indirect indicator that the company is adding value.
