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

Pros

Extremely well run global company with a clear vision of how events around the world will impact the business. A solid team environment where one can be expected to be stretched in order to reach the company goals. Strong history of innovation; long string of firsts with respect to new technology inventions and/or technology commercialisation. Without exception everyone in management respects their team members and works to find a work-life balance in a demanding environment. Given an opportunity I would gladly return to work for GE.

Cons

Often times the business will not fund a new development effort until a competitor is perceived to have reached a break-through technology. Very difficult to move from one business unit to another without putting yourself in harm's way.

Advice to Management

I believe employee satisfaction and productivity would increase if it were more acceptable to move laterally within the company.

    I have been working at GE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Steady job. Great training and educational opportunities.

    Cons

    I've had a generally good experience. However, despite managements best efforts to keep their valued employees happy, they are not willing to back it up with salary. Promotions are few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Pay to keep your top talent.
