    Pros

    Great training programs and a great place to gain experience at the beginning of one's career. Surrounding by very smart, accomplished people.

    Cons

    It's a large company and can feel very large company. If you want to build a long career at the company, while also advancing your career forward, can require moving your family time and time again, possibly all over the world.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. I think they've done a really great job of bringing more focus and cohesion to their portfolio, especially by selling NBC Universal in 2011 and GE Capital in 2015.

    Pros

    I enjoyed my colleagues. I enjoyed the work.

    Cons

    Does not necessarily promote from within.
    The company buys and sells companies all the time. Therefore, you may get sold.
    Reorganizations are frequent, due to acquisitions and dispositions.

    Advice to Management

    As the company experienced a "reduction in force" I was disappointed in managers that hired for open positions from the outside. In my opinion, folks that were impacted by restructuring should have filled newly created open positions.
