    Former Employee - Advanced Manufacturing Engineer Co-op in Decatur, AL

    I worked at GE (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great group of engineers to work with. Co-ops are compensated for over-time and treated as full-time salaried engineers and given challenging tasks.

    Cons

    Very fast paced environment. With the role of a manufacturing engineer comes the required work during non-operating hours (weekends & holidays).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some tuition-reimbursement would be nice. Other than that, great program!

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

    Pros

    Good for experience in the large corporation realm. GE tends to like mobility so perfect if you only want to gain experience in various products. You also will have opportunities to recommend many improvements. GE has the money to spend to try new equipment and processes.

    Cons

    GE has cut many of the former benefits. Newcomers will have fewer and fewer benefits, from pensions to healthcare in retirement to vacation time. Their IT department is poor, so you can expect to be using old and clunky software, generally not the latest/greatest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value those who stay to learn expertise, not just those who move around. Need medical for retirees.
