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 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable company with a desire to innovate.

    Cons

    Too big and too many people and processes to be able to get out of its own way to innovate and stay ahead of competition.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on processes and red tape, and run the company like a 100 person company.


  2. "Chaotic and Dysfunctional"

    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.
