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

Pros

Fascinating product lines, extremely talented people

Cons

Not much mentoring for an entry level position, definitely thrown into the fire

Advice to Management

Hire team leaders who can get the most out of their team, not necessarily the best software engineers. Continually take feedback from teams on process improvement.

    "Not the leadership it used to be - and too much red-tape to get anything done"

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of really talented people at GE, unfortunately, the leadership has diminished, at many levels in the company, and they're only focused on putting dozens of layers between those that deliver and the top.

    Cons

    In the past 10 years, there have been a lot of leaders put into positions that are ill-suited for their roles, leaving their teams without clear leadership - and without direction. Leadership is focused on putting together trackers to measure what the team does, rather than setting the direction to grow. (lots of leaders that lead by metrics, rather than leading)

    Advice to Management

    Don't keep promotion mid-level leaders or e-bands that prove time and again, that they're nothing great. The troops are no longer following them. And Go Back to the 5 layers (at most) between bottom and Jeff (that's what Jack did).

    Jeff used to have business reviews with 50 heads in Conf Rm A - each getting a chance to tell about their work - and Jeff knew what their leaders were driving. That's no longer the case. The layers are filtering what you hear - until it's watered down dribble.

    I worked at GE Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn, always work to do. Technically very challenging. You can job hop.

    Cons

    Too much politics centered around shipping the product (good or bad - they don't care). Many managers are full of themselves. If you have an issue and you are not a protected race - lay low and shut up, for goodness sake don't tell anyone- make sure you have a book and document every run-in of any type - and stay far away from HR (HR runs the place - very scary people and pretty useless).

    Advice to Management

    You can't give the management any advice - they always think they are right. It is pretty sad - my advice to a job seeker is to take every opportunity t learn and then move on - don't stay past 5 years or you are theirs and they know it.
