I have been working at GE full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great place to learn. Lots of opportunites to stretch your skills.

Cons

Too much overhead. Simple changes require too many approvals. Lots of administration required for every job. Completing all the non-job tasks takes time away from doing what you were employed to do.

Advice to Management

Ask the engineers. They care about the product and actually know what it needs.

    Pros

    GE will constantly provide you with great challenges which will push you to your limit every day. The management tends to be friendly, and most people there care about you as a person and employee.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy of most large companies are bad, and GE is one of the largest. If you can't play the political game you are either shoehorned into a particular role or forgotten about. Old-world style managers will make their way upwards while very talented individuals will be used for their abilities, but will ultimately suffer in their personal lives as a result. You can make it big at GE--for a price.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees. Get out of your bubbles, but don't go so far as to micromanage. The world isn't GE, you can't expect our customers to think as we do internally so be a little more realistic about what GE is and what we can provide as employees.

    Pros

    It is a big company which has great diversity and a lot of opportunities to learn/grow.

    Cons

    Because it is big, sometime you feel you are only a tiny fish in a big pond. If you are not agressive and seek opportunities, chances will never come to you for promotion.
