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

    Pros

    GE makes opportunities available for employees to take if they want. There are online courses, company subscriptions to business and management books and videos (all of which can be taken advantage of without needing the consent or knowledge of your manager),, and volunteering opportunities to give something back to the community as well as the more formal leadership programs. There are many opportunities for a person to improve their soft skills free of charge.

    Cons

    It's a large company with many rules and procedures and its unlikely you will be able to make a decision. Add several months to your expected decision turnaround time!

    Advice to Management

    Trust your local managers to make decisions for their business. Give guidelines if necessary. And if you don't trust them, get new managers. Don't keep all the decision making to yourself because you are making yourself into a bottleneck, and surely you don't want the pressure of doing it all?
