    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 (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn as much as you can about businesses, six sigma, as well as networking across businesses. If you are willing to move, job opportunities grow exponentially. Extremely ethical and train employees regularly in proper

    Cons

    Pay is not always highest, but at the lower end of the industry standard pay scale. In my particular business, there were a lot of hoops to go through to get management approval for new product ideas. Seemed like we spent a lot of time justifying our existence.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes it is better to get out of your own way. Trust that your employees are working towards goals that will help grow the company, brand and/or business. You are great at hiring smart people, let them be smart.
