    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I have been here for 23 years and have a pension. I was also lucky to have been here in the 80's and 90's. We had great leadership, great process, and a much clearer vision if our future.

    Cons

    Jeff Immelt has diluted our culture, Not improved any processes or execution capabilities, and tanked our stock price by 70%.

    Advice to Management

    Replace Jeff Immelt and get us back on the path that made this company a great place to work 20 years ago.
