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
