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

Pros

GE Energy has friendly co-workers, healthy work atmosphere and flexible hours. There is excellent technology being produced and engineers in particular, get to work on competitive products. A lot of knowledge exists in design reports and there is a lot one can learn from.

Cons

GE Energy's higher management lacks strategy especially concerning its workforce. There is little recognition for the work that employees produce working in high pressure environments, most typically about 50 hours a week. Pay raises are meager to non-existent. Growth is super slow. Work can get monotonous very quickly and the senior management does not seem to care about its employees saturating. Conservative and rotten HR policies make for a nightmare, and it is easy to lose motivation.

Advice to Management

Value your employees. Address their pressing concerns quickly and rapidly. GE is where it is more because of the employees at the lowest rung than because of executives who make big bucks.

    I worked at GE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Obviously GE has perfected numerous best practices and is usually operating at the forefront of efficiency. In addition, the opportunities for ownership and differentiation are abundant. Corporate training is top notch as you are learning right next to some of the smartest people in the world.

    Cons

    Culture can definitely be abrasive. Many individuals who had been with the company for 20+ years but weren't in an executive band position seemed to be hollow inside. This is one of the main reasons I left.

    Advice to Management

    HR has a long way to go. They never once helped me with anything. That is, they often got involved, they just made life more difficult rather than help me in any way shape or form. Probably because they are so focused on moving up the ladder and don't care about the people they are responsible for during the 18 months they're in a role.
