I have been working at GE full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Tremendous freedom to develop career path, Great Technical Expertise, Challenging problems, Great industry, Opportunities, Competitive Salary, Strong Senior Leadership, Awesome Training,

Cons

A bit heavy on the beauracracy. Things can take a while to develop. There can be some frustration with the slow pace. A big company can often get in the way of its own progress.

Advice to Management

Identify great talent and challenge them with huge problems if you want to change the game!!

    I have been working at GE full-time

    Pros

    Good professional development, variety of things to work on. This location provides significant collaboration and learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Don't work here if you are lazy or think that your good personality will carry you. It is a large company, so there are lots of processes you go through, sometimes to do something simple.

    Advice to Management

    More often than not you have good, dedicated people that work for you - empower them!

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

    Pros

    Many smart people work here and are generally pleasant colleagues. If you are right out of school and can get into one of the management programs, it is a good place to start. If you are an experienced professional and need a job, then maybe this is a place to wait until the economy improves.

    Cons

    GE is an extraordinarily bureaucratic company, despite the internal company line. It continually reorganizes (every year I've been here) so there really is never a steady-state. The company is investing in systems, but currently the info systems are absolutely dismal. It also off-shores a lot of employment to contractors in India, and many of these people have poor English language skills, and you will have to work with them.
