Approves of CEO

Pros

Good training, It will make you very marketable to other companies. The equipment is very common.
Great coworkers
Great place to start a career
Good managers
Low turnover. (See cons)
Large percentage of FEs retiring in the next 10 years

Cons

Don't ever expect a significant raise. Give it all you've got and get .5%. However, reviews will say your doing a great job and to keep up the good work. Need to negotiate high wage before your hired. It won't happen later.
Low turnover. Very high average age of FE's. They don't leave so company has no reason to increase wages. Large number of FEs retiring in next 10 years, this may change.

Advice to Management

Adjust wages for regional cost of living.
Good luck keeping anyone you hire. They're going to go elsewhere to make more money.

    You will work with a large diverse group of people. I consider the majority of GE employees to be top of the class.

    Unions are a big road block to productivity.
    To many peripheral departments not involved in actual Engineering or Production acitivities.

    Advice to Management

    Measure how many people actually touch the product againts the rest. Move the Power Point greators to actual jobs.
