    I have been working at GE full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The Job security is great, being able to learn and continue new experiences is also a plus. the ability to advance positions is always an option as ling as your willing to work hard for them. being part of an organized team and having professional bosses that are willing to help with anything you need is great.

    Cons

    the only con could be that I had to leave the company due to relocation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    recognizing hard work is always important, giving the chance and ability to allow workers to prove them selves as well.

    I worked at GE

    Pros

    GE has difference industry including Capital, Aviation, Energy, Transportation, Lighting , Healthcare. If you join the leadership program, you would have a chance to rotate in difference industry. Even not in program, GE normally gives employee opportunity to move into internal business for growth every two years. There are lots of smart people there. Good environment to learn esp for fresh graduates from university

    Cons

    company is too big and job can be very specific scope. GE has some roles only GE has.And the salary increase for employees is not much. But GE pays much more for the same job if recruit from external

    I worked at GE

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with people from all over the globe, that being said was able to climb thru the ranks.
    Pinch of a good ole boy company.

    Cons

    When older employees retired , they took a wealth of knowledge and company could care less if younger group were up to speed. The push was faster ,cheaper product quality the last concern for some products....

    Pros

    Company truly does power, build, cure and move the world... What GE makes does make the world a better place, so you can feel good about the mission.

    Cons

    Always changing- structure, values, benefits, everything. Can be unnerving as you never know how long anything will be stable. People aren't treated as more than a commodity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open and transparent with employees and treat them as valued assets, not numbers on a page.
