Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Many different projects, wide spectrum of people (with diverse scientific backgrounds), connection between research center and GE businesses

Cons

Sometimes technical depth is missing, projects are on annual cycles, poor continuity of projects, politics like in every large company

Advice to Management

focus more on technical advancement and innovation than on EHS

    I worked at GE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a lot to learn. The people there for the most part are easy to get along with, easy to work with. The people are helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    There is more bureaucracy and red tape than I have ever seen in my career. It is sometimes hard to get things done because of all the permission one needs to obtain.

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

    Pros

    - Market-competitive compensation
    - Smart, team-oriented and supportive colleagues
    - Commitment to excellence and to GE Values

    Cons

    - Commute to San Ramon is unpleasant, for most tech professionals
    - Open work space approach works well for developers and engineers, but is disastrous for Marketing, HR, Finance. Difficult to impossible to hold effective meetings (even by phone) or to do any sort of critical or abstract thinking

    Advice to Management

    - Consider the best of Silicon Valley approaches to improve location challenge
    1) Satellite offices
    2) Work from home flexibility
    3) Company shuttles

    - Ditto with open work space challenge -- build offices for your top talent.
