Very good benefits, especially life insurance, EAP and employee discounts.
Aetna medical insurance, great 401k, hsa, fsa, if you are in management you get unlimited paid vacation
Overall, a pretty comprehensive pacakge
Benefits are poor and getting progressively worse.
Not the greatest medical plan
Benefits include permissive time off, where you can take off as much as reasonable accepted by your manager. However, the workload given to the typical employee causes it to be very tough to take more than the standard time off.
Best: - Pension for existing employees (older) - Enhanced 401 (k) for newer employees - 4% (50% of 8%) base + 3% (pension replacement) - Permissive time off, no cap so far - Cheap premiums in HSA plan, good for young employees to save before needing to use in future Good: - Tuition assistance program has been tightened, but still generous to get an advanced degree for free Bad: - Reduced benefits in the newer health plans, tougher on older employees that never had HSA to save while young/healthy
I love the new unlimited PTO (Permissive Time Off) that GE has introduced. It allows for flexibility and and fosters a great work/life balance - because my boss is supportive. I have heard that other organizations are not as supportive and that any time off is scrutinized.
the company has decent benefits but sometimes its very convoluted and difficult to discern which conditions apply and which don't. the overall healthcare plan could be cheaper and more competitive.
The same problem as everywhere else, benefits continue to decrease in quality and increase in price. Also, the "vacation " policy is now unstructured\uncontrolled.
