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

    Pros

    - Good people, smart... driven
     - Great opportunitites if you are willing to relocate every two years
     - Great place to be from

    Cons

    - Great people leaving ...many, many great people leaving
     - There is an internal battle between regional teams and P&Ls in the Energy business, a complete distraction to the entire company
     - GE promised to stick with senior managers that have industry and domain experience, but most of the CEO placements recently are a move to place the GE favorites with respect to industry knowledge

    Advice to Management

    - Get in touch with your employees and listen before they are all gone and you need to start over
