    Pros

    Abilty to work remotely

    Cons

    Since the acquisition by GE, morale is at its lowest I've ever seen. There's a lot of big talk, but no clear direction. Many employees are leaving for better opportunities, and many are being laid off. The ones left have no idea what their job is. GE seems very disjointed, and communication is mediocre at best. There's not much regard for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together.

    Pros

    There are plenty of opportunities to learn and apply yourself. This has opened door for some international travel which some people may be looking for.

    Cons

    The compensation for the amount of work you put in doesn't seem to agree, but that may be more of a sign of the times.

    Pros

    Management spends all their time in meetings and never have time to walk the floor where they might have to actually have a conversation with you. So it's a pretty laid back place to work.

    Cons

    Management dragging down the guys who actually work. Career advancement is pretty much non existent unless you're best friends with someone at the top or you fail at doing the job you're assigned so they promote you so they don't have to fire you. Everyone under management is underpaid and there's "never" any money for raises.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a couple of dollars on employees instead of trying to save every penny to receive a larger management bonus. Even a pat on the back would work wonders.
