I worked at GE full-time (More than a year)

Pros

As long as you get your job done, no one bothers you. Loved my co-workers. I was able to work from home as necessary. Many benefits such as 20 sick days a year.

Cons

Manager frequently said India engineers would work at half our salary. Had 3 (remote) mangers in a year so no decent review. RIF'd then then offered another position similar responsibilites at 50% previous wages. Lost 401k contribution because I wasn't vested at no fault of my own.

Advice to Management

Invest in your talent and retain them. Everyone I talk to has done a stint at GE and gladly left.
