Approves of CEO

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

Pros

- Good benefits
- I worked for a great leader. Great/Good leaders can work for any company.
- Interesting work. Healthcare is a very interesting problem space for engineering.
- If you are into rigorous, detailed process this is a great place to be

Cons

- eLearning. Right out of 30 rock.
- Large and can be impersonal as such.
- If you are not into rigorous, detailed process this is not a place you want to work.

Advice to Management

- Cut online learning to bare minimum to meet all your legal requirements.

You really need to better communicate to customers you intentions for products that are nearing end of life cycle.

If you are an employee it is actually easier to look for a job outside of GE than it is inside GE.

    Pros

    They finally value Marketing, and there are opportunities to do meaningful work. You are empowered to spend money when needed and given autonomy to own your product.

    Cons

    There is very little on-boarding training, you kind of have to figure things out on your own.

    The local people are great, but ultimately decisions are made by corporate folks looking only at a P&L.

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

    Pros

    Without a doubt, the most knowledgeable and technically competent life science experts in the industry.
    Front line sales, support, and service teams genuinely care for their customers.

    Cons

    Advancement depends on who you know, not what you know. Nepotism abounds, especially in the service organization.
    Management takes an adversarial approach to managing staff; poor morale as a direct result.

    Advice to Management

    Do the right thing and quit. Let qualified leaders from the deep pool of talent in other GE businesses take over.
