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

Pros

As an intern, I had access to executives, managers, and professional engineers across all departments. Networking opportunities abounded, pay was very competitive, and they take you in right away as part of the family. The projects I was given were of high value and impact. They are very interested in developing you as a person and engineer, and offer many technical learning opportunities - even allowing you to take apart a real jet engine! Their commitment to integrity is evident in policies and employee attitudes. Also, they just hire really nice people - everyone went out of their way to answer any questions I had and give me any resources I needed.

Cons

Working at such a huge company (10,000 engineers in Cincinnati alone), it's easy to get lost in the mix. While Cincinnati is a nice city, it is pretty far from some of the bigger cities on the east coast, and can feel small at times. To get high up in the company, you will make a lot of personal sacrifices as far as time and family.

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

    Pros

    Great Pay and stable work environment, great brand for resume.

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunity for individuals that have not spent entire career at GE. Too many bureaucratic hurdles that are GE specific for advancement that requires years to complete.

    Advice to Management

    GE has great advancement system for hire right out of college but for mid career hires it is ver difficult to get on the advancement tract and I have seen a lot of great talent leave due to this policy.
