    Pros

    You can't beat the leadership skills and breadth of experience you can acquire at GE. In a huge, successful, global company like GE, you can get the experience in 1 job that could take you 4-5 jobs elsewhere.

    Cons

    Change is a constant. While positive change is good, the changes are often wasted energy as a result of constant organizational movements and new leaders marking their territory or making their presence felt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to place a higher premium on the leadership traits that make employees want to rally behind our leaders. I see too many people getting promoted who play good politics and align themselves with the right sponsor, but they often aren't the people you want want to work with or for.
