    Pros

    I have been with GE for 18 years, and the best part of working for GE is the training and growth opportunities that they provide...if you are a hard worker, and strive to excel in everything you do, this is the place for you!!!

    Cons

    As I said in the pros section, GE expects a lot from you, and you will work extremely hard to achiever your goals, so if you want just an ordinary job just to get by, this isn't the place for you.

    Pros

    The employees are the best part of aha working at GE. GE offers ongoing training both technical and leadership. They are always looking for ways to innovate.

    Cons

    Can be slow to move and get things done. Can sometimes have too many leaders/managers and not enough doers.

    Advice to Management

    Management should more fully understand what everyone does. Really invest in technology and digital both thx people and dollars.

    Pros

    GE is a top notch employer. From Jeffrey R. Immelt
    in down. I've never worked anywhere that safety is of such a high priority.

    Cons

    I have nothing to put in the cons section. You'll not find as fine a organization to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. Stick with investing in your most valuable asset - those you employ.

    Pros

    Training opportunities, flexible schedules, travel opportunities, reasonable salary for area, exciting projects to work on. You will work with great people for the most part.

    Cons

    As with most large companies, frustrating bureaucracy slows down / inhibits work. Lots of office politics... more so recently than in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Become better at determining which products are truly important to the market. Many projects fall short of being what they could be, due to lack of funding, lack of staffing, and lack of proper leadership.


  9. Great Company

    Pros

    This is still a great company to work for and progress in spite of changes. I would love to work there again.

    Cons

    As with other companies, change will force management to make decisions that are not favorable for all employees. No specific issues with the company.

    Pros

    Lot of advancement opportunities if you are mobile. Many good managers as GE knows how to develop talent. Stable company that has been around for MANY years.

    Cons

    Some beuracracy and politics, but that comes with any company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on this course. This is a great company to work for and I have had a very positive experience so far!

    Pros

    Great training programs and a great place to gain experience at the beginning of one's career. Surrounding by very smart, accomplished people.

    Cons

    It's a large company and can feel very large company. If you want to build a long career at the company, while also advancing your career forward, can require moving your family time and time again, possibly all over the world.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. I think they've done a really great job of bringing more focus and cohesion to their portfolio, especially by selling NBC Universal in 2011 and GE Capital in 2015.
