    I worked at GE Capital full-time

    Pros

    Great talent
    Innovative company
    Excellent management
    Smaller teams make it feel like a smaller company
    Does right by employees when it can
    Results oriented - if you don't actually accomplish anything it doesn't matter if you worked 12 hours per day. Great place for those who are efficient.
    Gives recognition and rewards often (when deserved)
    Competitive wages
    Successfully brought back many previously offshore positions with great success
    Thomas Edison created this company

    Cons

    The industrials are jealous of capital
    GE sold off most of GE Capital
    Many upper managers are able to get quick accomplishments and then move on before the cracks in appear
    Terrible cost cutting before the bad news broke, now even worse
    Many employees don't feel anything about the history and legacy. They are there for a paycheck and that's it
    Many reorganizations in my time there

    Advice to Management

    Stop share buybacks and paying out special dividends that have destroyed the balance sheets. Bring the fast pace of GE Capital's projects to the industrials. Keep taking care of employees and don't start offshoring again or it will only get worse.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with HR, then casual meeting in the office of hiring manager. Finally, a meeting in a hotel lobby with hiring manager and his manager. It was more of a casual conversation about what I had done and what they expected. No stupid questions about how would handle...? Tell me about a time...?
