    I worked at GE full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and lots of opportunities for employees to get involved in projects as well as volunteer work.

    Cons

    Has cyclical layoffs and employee morale drops for a year. Also, yearly performance reviews where you have no input on how your manager ranks you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of top-down employee performance reviews and start having real discussions with employees.

    I have been working at GE full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Given the wide range of business at GE and the many global locations the is plenty of room for Growth, opportunities, advancement, and variety. GE holds their employees to high integrity standads

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, too many layers that think they need to be involved that don't add value.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace and live the new culture. Cut the wasteful discussions, meetings, and project reviews and get stuff done faster. Uninstall PowerPoint from every PC. Stop talking about stuff and just do it.
