No opinion of CEO

I worked at GE Aviation as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

hands-on technical work experience, good team members that were supportive, good pay for an intern position, flexible hours, overtime, subsidized housing/travel costs, inclusive atmosphere, incentives for being healthy (food, gym, etc)

Cons

Takes two weeks to get everything settled (software downloads require approval by at least two upper-level executives), big projects can be frustrating when other teams aren't on the same page

Advice to Management

Make the internship program more structured, and try to find a faster way to make setting up the computers/ software

    I have been working at GE Aviation as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, managers care and want you to succeed. Have to work hard or give the impression of working hard in order to succeed. Networking is big and there are a lot of opportunities to interact with the senior leadership.

    Cons

    No creative outlet, cut and dry requirements. Pretty big on diversity so people get promoted for the wrong reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Expose the IT teams to the core business so they can better understand the purpose of the company.
