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

Pros

Company has the resources to execute important initiatives. There are plenty of opportunities for expanding professional experience and advancement. Challenging, interesting work. Decent benefits (although benefits have been reduced in recent years, and become more expensive).

Cons

Leadership is completely focused on quarterly results. Little long term focus which means that important things are sometimes not well planned and executed because they tend to happen at the last possible moment. Matrix organization means that everyone multitasks and task swaps constantly - nothing gets the real attention it should. Constant simplification efforts the focus on cosmetic enhancements and never address the root cause. Best resources are overtasked, so the people who could really make things better have no time to actually work on making things better.

Advice to Management

I know the stockholders run the place and that's why the lack of long term focus - but leadership needs to look out a little further than the next quarter, plan important things in advance, and stop overtasking your best resources so much that they don't have time to actually focus on making things better.
