GE Power – Why Work For Us?


The Power of GE Power

undefined

The world’s most complex problems stem from accessibility to clean and sustainable sources of power and water. GE employees have an unmatched foundation on which to build their careers - and help solve some of the world's most challenging problems. With a full array of advanced power generation and water optimization technologies, GE employees are offered challenging, rewarding careers that drive growth and progress, anticipate future energy needs, and power a cleaner, more productive world.

Innovation

From the outset, innovation has been part of GE’s DNA. That means being surrounded by bright, interesting people working together on new and exciting projects. It means trying to find new and better ways of doing things. And it means enjoying a career with extraordinary opportunities and enormous potential.

Leadership & Training

We hire exceptional people and invest in their growth. GE has a culture of continuous learning, thoughtfully designed to enable employees to grow their personal capabilities and reach their full potential. We invest in your education, provide access to experienced colleagues and give you the opportunities to work with intelligent, dedicated people, challenge yourself, and grow.

Global Business

We do business in over 160 countries, giving our employees a literal world of experience. Your opportunities at GE are defined, in part, by the emerging needs of our businesses, customers and clients all around the world, because we go where the opportunities take us. A career at GE offers you access to some of the most exciting and dynamic challenges of your lifetime.

Integrity

Integrity is an essential component of life at GE. It is how we conduct ourselves and how we do business. It is non-negotiable. While some businesses prize results over ethics, we value both. At GE we believe that how you do something is as important as what you do. We provide you with the training and opportunities to enjoy a successful career you can be proud of, now and for the rest of your life.

Citizenship

GE's approach to citizenship is a full-time commitment with the same goals, strategies and accountabilities that drive any other part of our business. GE applies its long-standing spirit of innovation and unique set of capabilities to take on tough challenges in our communities.

Working at GE Power

GE is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We offer a competitive salary, outstanding benefits and the professional advantages of an environment that supports our employees' development and recognizes their achievements. GE fosters an inclusive environment where employees have the opportunity to succeed and diversity is embraced as a competitive advantage in the marketplace. The passion that our people bring to their work extends to their private worlds, and GE encourages a healthy balance between the two. GE values education and is dedicated to providing the tools and training for our employees' professional development.

Operating with Integrity

How we deliver results is as important as the results themselves. GE seeks to lead in workplace and marketplace integrity by respecting the human rights of everyone touched by our business, and by enforcing legal and financial compliance.

These commitments are detailed in our integrity policy, The Spirit & The Letter, which every employee supports with a signed pledge. They are further enabled by our ombudsperson process, which encourages any employee to report integrity concerns without fear of reprisal.

Work and Life Balance

Naturally, the passion that our people bring to their work extends to their own private worlds, and GE is committed to enabling a healthy balance between the two. GE encourages our people to meet their work commitments while balancing their own life responsibilities.

To support this balance, flexible work arrangements are an integral part of the way we conduct business. The Company also offers many programs and resources to support employees including financial management, family counseling and more.

GE Power now offers an unlimited vacation day policy - following suit with some of the most forward-thinking companies. You can read more about the benefit by clicking here.
