    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.
