I worked at GE Capital full-time
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)
Successfully brought back many previously offshore positions with great success
Thomas Edison created this company
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.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GE Capital.
Interview was fine , 1 week hiring. One on two with a person that I was not even going to work for. The person I was going to work for said nothing.
Reasons for Declining
There was no training program for my specific podition, had to be in with customer service and accounting people. Once I got to the work station i had a nuddy but was exprctef yo figure it out on my own was 70%. Then yhere are no bonuses or insentive pay. Plus I told the up front I wad not going yo be doing collection. They gave collections the third week. Also ran into very aggressive people that had low tolerance for newbies.
