I have been working at GE full-time

Pros

The culture is very relaxed, the business is very profitable, and the people are generally all around good and smart people. Work/Life balance usually has a pretty high priority.

Cons

The salaries are just average, annual raises are typically small (average less than 3%), lots of bureaucracy within the GE matrix organization. Upper management sometimes also has a habit of selling products that don't exist, which creates a strain on the engineering teams.

Advice to Management

It would be better if the upper management rewarded employees for hard work. Especially when a particular business (such as Bently Nevada) is very profitable.
