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

Pros

Large company with power to reach customers and vendors. Has structure for healthcare, savings plan, travel, etc.

Cons

Enormous pressure of meeting expectations of stockholders, finance community, and general public opinion forces agressive behavior and workload.

Advice to Management

There is a lot of mailings and talk on work/life balance but upper management does not support it. Walk the talk.

    Very competitive environment. Employees fight for promotions and divisions compete for funding.

    Continue to shed underperforming or auxiliary businesses. GE is too diversified and needs to focus on only a few core competencies.
    Reduce reliance on GE Capital.
