    I worked at GE

    Pros

    They have many benefits and lots of growth opportunities if a person wants it. There are also many opportunities to move around the country and the world.

    Cons

    They are very regimented. Career paths are predetermined and if you don't fit in with what they have planned then they don't really consider you a career person.

    Pros

    Ability to work with various functions within the business, it's very easy to ask anyone in the company for help or advice.

    Cons

    Some internal processes are archaic/somewhat convoluted. Management is taking concrete steps to address many of these issues, some progress has already been made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to execute on listening to employees, customers.

    I have been working at GE as an intern

    Pros

    Good hands on experience with the medical imaging arm at GE Healthcare. People over there are generally nice and easygoing. Not very stressful in terms of the workload or requirement.

    Cons

    Midwest is not an ideal to live for me. I am not a big fan of the weather there and I'd rather prefer Chicago if I have to stay in the same region.
