    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    It's a huge company with a lot of products, plenty of opportunities to learn about how not do do things.

    Cons

    Shareholder-led, quarter-to-quarter decision making. The company always does what's needed to satisfy the analysts, not what's actually the right thing. Every time GE has a bad quarter, or even a decent quarter, the company locks down the hatches, cuts bonuses, restricts travel and pares back annual raises...yet somehow they always manage to construct a booth the size of a city block at tradeshows.
    In addition to the above, GE has a terribly overblown opinion of its own ability to execute. GE ain't that good at process, folks, no matter how many books have been written on the topic.

    Advice to Management

    The world can't always be described by a spreadsheet.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent managerial opportunities throughout the company. Hundreds of departments spread throughout the country, and an excellent place to develop a career. Great reputation in business. Great benefits package.

    Cons

    As a medical device company, GE Healthcare is outstanding. As a medical software company, GE Healthcare is unimpressive in quality, and myopic in vision. It can be disheartening to work on software that only exists because of the clout of its brand name. GE Healthcare is contributing little to the clinical software industry, buying up companies without regard for their ability to maintain the product post-acquisition. Consequently, development is slow, products are outdated, and turnover is high. Pay and raises are mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    You may be able to make some profit by forming a company through endless acquisitions, but in the software world, you will never make a good company that way. GE Healthcare's software division will always lag behind the competition is programmers spend their careers struggling to fix products they never developed using technologies they don't understand.
