I have been working at GE Capital full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Work at GE for the benefits and the leadership. Though salary is low, the benefits are fantastic. The tuition reimbursement program is amazing. The exposure to senior leadership is great.

Cons

The worst part about working at GE is that they don't pay well. They don't pay at the market rate.

Advice to Management

Increase salaries. The FMP program is a premier program and the best in class. Losing FMP graduates due to salary issues is idiotic.

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

    Pros

    Long business history, standard benefits package, standard vacation policy.
    Employee discounts, sufficient work environment. Office locations are easy to commute from suburban locations.

    Cons

    Complacency is consistent throughout the organization. Managers don't manage, they micromanage. There are no opportunities for growth unless you came in fresh from college. Experienced hires aren't appreciated for their knowledge, they're just micromanaged along with the rest. No opportunity to prove your worth. Ridiculous levels of bureaucracy for the simplest of requests. Long timers with bad attitudes just coast through the work day. They're not held accountable and usually pass the blame for their mistakes. And the most curious trait among the managers is really poor business etiquette (always late for meetings or they just don't come to the meeting, no appreciation for time limits, invasion of personal "cube" space, talking to you while you're on the phone) and the list goes on. I wish someone had posted this much detailed information before I accepted the offer. I would have selected my second offer. Hope this helps someone.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the numerous levels of management and allow employees to show what they can contribute. Micromanagement is mismanagement. This style of managing is consistent within the company and not conducive to good morale. There are some that may prefer this type of management, but do you really want them as employees?

    I worked at GE Capital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of job openings as people leave and costs are cut.

    Cons

    Products are disappearing as well as inv teams (commodities). Sales down to 2 from 11.
    Asia and Europe are gone. Looks like an insurance buyout for the plan coming soon.

    Advice to Management

    Marketing and product development are disfunctional. Replace them if anyone will take the risk.
