    Ge can be challenging and stressful. Conflicting metrics can drive confusion and waste. The days can be long and work life balance is often poor.

    Pros

    Pay is OK I guess

    Cons

    It's hard to believe how much money this company makes when you see how poorly managed they are. I'm an hourly worker and you wouldn't believe how inept our lower and middle management is. We never have parts we need to do our jobs, this whole lean manufacturing was shoehorned into our facility a few years ago and it made productivity worse- not better. If Caterpillar gets their act together we could be in serious trouble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about your job and listen to the workers on the floor, they have a lot of good ideas. If you only "do what you're told" and not what's best for the business, we're all going to be looking for new jobs.
