    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great people, talent, brand, flexible work arrangements possible. Salary is good compared to local environment. Great training and ability to move to various functions

    Cons

    A lot of restructuring and layoffs in past years. Capital in particular will be significantly smaller so much less opportunity. Morale has suffered in recent years.

    Advice to Management

    Need to rebuild culture and loyalty. Will be tough to recruit given recent years. And with so many acquisitions on industrial side, defining a unique GE culture will get more difficult.

    I worked at GE full-time

    Pros

    Large company. Many different lines of business to learn if given the opportunity. They like you to move jobs every 2 years. Lots of training.

    Cons

    Sterile working environment. Hard to trust folks. Treated like a number versus tears of experience.

    Pros

    Unlimited career growth, best training out there

    Cons

    Few vacations days are offered and it is very difficult to use them. Hours are long and compensation is not adequate to make up for the loss. They do not have very many opportunities in major cities so it is not very appealing to work in most of their office locations.

    Advice to Management

    Add more jobs in major cities, implement mandatory vacation days, higher salaries

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

    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 Management

    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.

    I worked at GE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pros are limited. No clocking in or out is a nice luxury, being able to do bench tech work or go out in the facility helps break up the time. The company matches some of the 401K plan.

    Cons

    Teamwork is does not exist, extreme high stress, pay is not even close for location, medical benefits fall short, vision and dental are ok. The raises and bonuses go to upper management.

    Advice to Management

    The Healthcare Biomedical Services need some positive attention, the turn over rate is high. The employees are overloaded with little relief or assistance from direct or upper management.
