I have been working at GE Aviation full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Stable business with great personal growth opportunities. Fair compensation, and a very strong set of company values driven by an excellent senior leadership team.

Cons

GE is a VERY US based company, and everything runs to Eastern Standard Time - this makes work life balance in the UK difficult.

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

    Pros

    Being treated like a professional from day one and not kept in the dark about any company business.

    Amazingly helpful peers who don't hesitate to help you.

    A true team work ethic. In close to a year of employment, I have not seen anyone get "thrown under the bus" over an issue.

    Pay is above average and benefits are fair.

    You are encouraged, if not prodded, to continue with your education.

    If you have an idea for an improvement you will be empowered to implement it. Management will not poach your idea.

    Salary pay. You manage your own hours for the most part. Have not had to work overtime once.

    Working remotely is commonplace.

    Almost seamless lateral movement within such a huge company.

    Cons

    Sometimes you work strange hours.

    Because it is a matrix organization structure, it's time consuming to figure out where to get answers.

    Dealing directly with customers and vendors can be troublesome and will affect your performance.

    Because it's a global company, you will not always have readily available access to content that other sites around the world have.

    Constant ITAR speed bumps even within the confines of GE.

    You cannot carry over vacation days from year to year.

    A lot of teleconferences. Sometimes entire mornings are spent sitting on the phone.

    HR is just plain slow or unresponsive after you get hired.

    After working for other aerospace companies, I fear ever leaving GE Aviation. ( I guess this should be in the "Pro" section).

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your people.

    I'm a big fan of the buy-an-extra-week-of-vacation program.


  2. "Great potential to develop your career"

    I have been working at GE Aviation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    great opportunity to work in various parts of the business. GE spends a lot of time training and developing their employees into leaders. They give you the opportunity to move anywhere in the world and travel for work as part of developing you into global leader. Its also easy to transfer within the company to different GE businesses such as going from Aviation to Energy, or Health care to Capital.

    Cons

    GE will never pay as much as other businesses, this is mostly due to the fact that GE has much better opportunities to develop you as a leader, and has more leadership opportunities than any other company. this typicaly is the cause of any retention loss.

    Advice to Management

    sometime for top talent you need to be willing to pay a little more.
