Pros

Compensation is comparable, BUT you work endlessly. Good place to learn, then get out of there after 2 to 4 years. It's kinda of like making a deal with the GhostRider mentality, damned if you do and damned if don't.

Cons

Learn to play the HIGH Performance game early ON in your career here or else you'll find yourself under the bus everyday.

Advice to Management

Learn to LISTEN to logic and not what you think you know. Understand the value of thinking outside of the box instead of saying it to your employees and owning the implementation of the concept. Since you admire your CEO so much, review his management style and then look at your own. See how that aligns & works for you and your department.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Endless opportunities to learn and grow. Very rewarding experience. Breadth of technologies, products and services you can get deeper into.

    Cons

    Very high expectations. Average performance is not enough to be rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Engage employees more into strategic decisions. Reward performances more and reduce pressure for annual rating and ranking. Provide better benefits.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Starting salary is good, the pension for older employees (which is no longer offered to new hires), starting vacation time and vacation growth, freedom to come and go as you please as long as your work gets done, freedom to take time off whenever you feel like.

    Cons

    Salary grows at a snails pace, management does not know you exist, promotions don't appear to be given out on a performance basis but instead by nepotism, long hours, little reward, subjective performance evaluation system, senior management consistently makes decision that aren't transparent to anyone below them, constantly having to do useless hr activities, constantly have to take useless online training, constantly forces to do activities that reduce your productivity, engineer is done by a large committee (everyone feels they should be involved regardless of how small GE project is)

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent, know when people are going above and beyond for you and compensate them accordingly, promote based on performance.
