Lots of functional responsibility
Emphasis on leadership & ethics
Complex, global industries that will shape the 21st century (energy, oil & gas, aviation, transportation)

Complex bureaucracy with global functions that supervise local business leaders

Advice to Management

Great portfolio focus, now decentralize the businesses and encourage middle management through smaller P&Ls

    I have been working at GE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of talented employees, many different opportunities for a wide variety of positions. Innovation is strongly encouraged and rewarded.

    Cons

    Very large company, hard to stand out among hundreds of thousands of talented individuals. There are also many long standing traditions in some of the areas of the company, and are hard to break.

    Pros

    Great place to start a career. The sky is the limit if you're willing to play the corporate game.

    Cons

    Again, if you're willing to play the corporate game. Revenue targets are handed out without any regard to the reality of the market...
