    Pros

    expected to perform to a high standard, everyone is smarter than you so you learn a lot and you're challenged to keep improving and growing

    Cons

    each business unit has its own sub-culture so sometimes those are tougher to survive in especially if the industry is going through a tough cycle or it's not as mature as some of the others

    Advice to Management

    continue to move faster on the culture changing things you're trying to do -- invest in your SPB and LPB now more than ever

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

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

    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!
