    I have been working at GE full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Sheer size & scale of operations
    - Great internal leadership programs such as FMP, CAS etc.
    - Generally intelligent & driven employees

    Cons

    - Fed oversight bearing heavily on productivity, creativity & profitability at GE Capital
    - Industrial side of business not growing earnings quickly enough
    - Tax as one of top 5 P&L's by net income: probably sustainable, not equitable
    - Too inward-looking at all but highest levels

    Advice to Management

    Fix Healthcare business, open Crotonville up to lower-level employees


  2. "Great people that make up the company, but bureacratic processes."

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - great businesses built for the future
    - strong quality of co-workers
    - constant acquisitions which provide personal growth opportunities
    - good compensation for strong performers
    - fantastic personal development opportunities both skill set and learning/training

    Cons

    - I work 10-12 hours a day with frequent weekend "catch-up"
    - email is incessant... there are very few admins so you have to balance strategy with tactical
    - the better you perform the more you get until you leave while poorer performers in the same job/band fly under the radar without much repercussion

    Advice to Management

    GE has become overly matrixed and bureaucratic - too many approvals, tie-offs across multiple lines of business and regions while not enough holding people accountable for delivering for our customers and shareholders.
