    Pros

    Challenging projects in unique applications. Interdisciplinary nature of projects lends to lot of opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Promotions to management roles highly dependent on experience within GE framework on team management, which negates outside management experience somewhat, especially in mid career.

    Pros

    Promote/advancement is quick. The company prides themselves on cultivating new ideas and adding new blood with various roles. The work/life balance is good and the extra hours needed are made up for with the salary.

    Cons

    Sometimes the GE politics can get out of control with things constantly changing on a monthly basis. Right when you get use to doing something they seem to change it.
