Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at GE full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great motivated and driven co-workers

Cons

Do not join as a direct hire - all upper management, and I really do mean all, enter via the various Leadership training programs straight out of College.

Advice to Management

Do try to actually manage your direct reports, stop managing up so often

    I worked at GE as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in the Seattle GE Healthcare office for 3 months as an Edison Engineering intern. The experience had good benefits and pay, and little micromanagement. I was able to present my work at all hands meetings, which made me feel like a part of the team. Seattle is pleasant in the summer

    Cons

    Slow corporate feel, lack of young employees, cubicle life, filling out goals was a pain. This particular office seemed to be on the decline, with layoffs happening during my brief stay. The environment was far from electric

    Advice to Management

    Foster a more collaborative environment

    I worked at GE as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work, nice people, good work life balance and lots of social events to foster interactions

    Cons

    They can do better in terms of compensations. I guess the name on your resume makes up for the non-competitive pay

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
