Pros

Benefits / Resume Builder / People / Hours / Relocation possibilities throughout the country/world. The company is well respected and has a large network of EX GE employees with whom to network. Tuition reimbursment is also a great benefit.

Cons

Beauracracy / Mundane tasks / Non stop data asks / Advancement can be structured so as to not work in your benefit. If you do twice as much as someone else they can get promoted faster if they have been there longer. There can also be a lot of mundane data grabs or other task that get fed down the pipe.

Advice to Management

Senior Managment should take a careful look at the people. There is a lot of talent at GE but also a lot of dead weight.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunities if you are a good work politician - also depending on department, direct supervisor, etc. (of course).
    Expect to work hard, and compete with top notch talent (and know that "so so" performance will never cut it). Yes, I see this as a plus.

    Cons

    Dis-organized, too many changes, no direct or clear job responsibilities, nor even a title in some cases.
    It has been said many, many times, there is an official policy at GE (for any given solution), and there is also always an underground reality of how things get done. No one will ever speak of the reality on a conference call or in an email or pitch, but you will have to know it to get anything done, you may have to support it and be part of it.
    Senior staff at GE sees a scrubbed view of the solutions it employs.

    Advice to Management

    Get input from the business as well as people "in the trenches" (so to speak) about how solutions are REALLY performing (instead of relying upon trumped up performance metrics).


  2. "Ge is a place of great training and challinging opportunities."
