    I have been working at GE full-time

    Pros

    Smart People. Strong internal processes. Strong customer focus. Good products and services, and culture of improving and developing new products and industry leading in technology. Overall, the people are great and want to help each other to be successful. Rewarding place to be an engineer.

    Cons

    As in any large company, there are some chimney's (internal communication challenges, behaviors).

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great work in customer focus and developing products. Shake up the executive ranks. Stale incumbent executives with undue influence, old thinking and strategy are slowing growth.

    I worked at GE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company; meet a lot of people from different parts of the company. Great for networking.

    Cons

    Company is always willing to reduce service quality and save money by employing contractors in India.

    Advice to Management

    Managers don't care about employees, only their next promotion and who or what its going to take to get there.

    I have been working at GE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with and leading very bright and talented individuals. Many opportunities for change in role provided you build relationships across the vast and different IT spaces and business units. Great training and professional development courses. Excellent experience to build exposure of complex enterprise architectures.

    Cons

    Inconsistent strategy and vision of internal IT solutions. No emphasis placed on strategic decisions made from quantitative data in recent years, with large and grandiose statements being the norm often with no modeling for total cost of ownership. 18 month minimum in job before moving to a new position often leaves 90% completed product, tool or service rolled out with the original project owner or executive champion moving on with no direct link to future project success, failure, or TCO projection alignment.

    Advice to Management

    Drive IT strategy with cash flow and cost based approach; eliminating strategic vision statements with no imperial data to validate. Go back to multi-year valuations to provide data points on project, tool, and architecture success and continue to drive efficiencies of scale.

    Pros

    A very good place to work for. The managers there treat their employees really well. A pretty laid back place to work. Don't have someone watching over your shoulder. Excellent working conditions.

    Cons

    none that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    keep treating people well
