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 people and a great company. Lots of opportunity to learn new things. Freedom to make decisions without being micromanaged.

    Cons

    A lot of higher level people. Look down on the "less educated". Not much room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Make a plan and stick to it. Don't be all talk and no action.

    I have been working at GE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good work/family balance is good, that's about it. Good company if you're trying to be a corporate person, but if you just want to be just so, then look else where. I guess everything else is ok

    Cons

    promotion is based on who likes you rather than your performance. They are not good when you want to refer friends/family to a position.I havent really had a good experience working with them in the 5-6 years I've been affilitated with the company

    Advice to Management

    fire them all, get new ones
