I have been working at GE full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Lot's of different opportunities, easy to move around to take on different challenges. Lot's of opportunities for training.

Cons

To much momentum, hard to make changes or process improve. To many people are satisfied or comfortable in their position - don't rock the boat attitude exists from the top down in many places. To much overhead / wasted effort

Advice to Management

To many people working in a box, engineers are taking on assembly line tasks - people are forgetting why they do something.

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

    Pros

    Benefits on par with any big company 401K, Medical, Dental, Vision, EAP

    Cons

    No respect or opportunities for experienced workers.
    Medical not as good as at other big companies I've worked at. No bonuses or profit sharing
    I've found my managers to be incompetent, aimless and verbally abusive. I've had 3 managers and the last has been the worst. No way to deal with him. Had to simply remove myself

    Advice to Management

    You need to do a sanity check on your culture. It's costing you in terms of performance and productivity. Lots of lip service to culture. Execution sucks.
