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

Pros

Leadership training very good, lots of opportunities to lead others. Challenging work. Very competent peers.

Cons

Management very focused on short term. Too much work, not enought people or funding to do everything asked. Very little prioritization - everything is a top priority to get done. Focus on building the organization in emerging markets vs leveraging US talent base.

Advice to Management

Focus more and less on trying to make everyone do everything and more on prioritizing and making smart tradeoffs.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at GE Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mature, dedicated workforce; flexible work schedules; great benefits; liked my job there a lot minus the frenetic pace and often unreasonable expectations

    Cons

    Very high targets; expected to meet customer sat while workforce is being reduced and existing staff are overloaded; minimal formal training, must self-train on most products that you are expected to support, then you are evaluated on your ability to pull info from other people who have been there a long time and have the knowledge only in their heads

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Best non-management co-workers anyone could ever ever ask for! These are the folks that keep the place running.

    Cons

    I cannot name a single manager or executive that is actually ACCOUNTABLE for anything. The most complicated matrix in the history of Corporate America. Even GE employees that transfer into GE Healthcare cannot believe how complex the place is... the politics are so thick and the CYA is so pervasive that one cannot believe that working in Washington, DC could be any more political.

    IT is non-existent... completely absent from any accountability!

    Advice to Management

    Please undo the MATRIX. Put someone in charge.... it may hurt in the short term but eventually those that are hiding in the complexity of the matrix won't be able to hide anymore!
