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

    Pros

    The pay is very good with a strong effort to organize free intern events that are a lot of fun. I was able to do real design work and received an incredible amount of support and advice from coworkers.

    Cons

    My main complaint is that work always moves slowly at GE due to all the necessary approvals. Additionally my experience seemed unique at my location. Most other interns were bored with too little to do and/or the work was very tedious. But I guess someone has to do that work.

    Advice to Management

    I learned a lot from every project I was involved in. Designs are made better with a group reviewing them. Including interns in more projects will keep them busy, help them learn more and lead to better designs. Last thing, international opportunities would be amazing for students since GE has such an international presence.

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

    Pros

    retirement benefit plus 401k match
    tends to be more job stability than small companies
    marketing driven - program focus
    profit generating company
    limits competition by only investing in high barrier to entry products

    Cons

    big company politics
    suffocating process - regulated industry is partly to blame but cya attitude multiples the problem
    lack of long term engineering vision - downside of market driven approach
    very little innovation - slowly evolves existing product
    management is focused on climbing the ladder rather than technology savy
    management is inbred - lack of outside perspective
    management leadership is overrated - no vision
    long-term employees have become techically obsolete but politically entrenched
    not a good incubator of software talent
    lots of false technical leaders with great sales skills
    true technical leaders will find it difficult to influence the roadmap

    Advice to Management

    Run company more like small businesses so innovation can thrive.
    Compete by being the most efficient and lean at implementing regulatory process.
    Forget the one-line theme slogans.
