    I have been working at GE Global Research full-time (More than a year)


    GRC is one of the best places to perform real research with real people who understand industry. The best part of my job is I am working on things that are truly amazing.


    Some middle managers can be old school and controlling but as new employees we quickly find ways to get around this and drive towards our project goals. One of the real benefits of GRC is the informal network and open door policy of senior leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to expand our reach beyond GE - I think connecting GRC more closely with Government grants and companies will make us all smarter and keep us growing.
