I worked at GE full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

competitive pay is about the only positive thing i can say about this company but with the benefits getting as bad as they were i'm not even sure if the pay makes up for it.

Cons

Horrible management, GE bought our offshore service company and brought in their own management. They had no idea about our industry and no idea about our product. They didn't follow our policies or their own, if you had an issue and it actually fell under a policy they would just change the policy or ignore it all together. They skimped on everything from tools, supplies, software, you name it, it wasn't uncommon to bring something from home just to be able to complete a job. There was also a horrible attitude when it came to the customers so long as the customer didn't know it was wrong then it was okay. This attitude was directly from our upper management and just had a trickle down effect. It was definitely a blame game with very little accountability.

Advice to Management

Reevaluate, put a little more value in actual experience, we had guys with 10+ years of experience leaving left and right because of our management or lack of.

    I have been working at GE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good emphasis on getting correct processes in place. Large company that seems to put emphasis on mobility. Strong HR processes.

    Cons

    Very corporate atmosphere even by corporate standards. Due to size, some areas have more beaurocracy than one may be sue to, but its necessary to protect the company.
