I have been working at GE as an intern (More than a year)

Pros

Great benefits and facilities, great colleagues. One of the better companies to work at. Preaches great work values (turning them into actions is a completely different story though)

Cons

Lacks innovation - people just come in and do what is least expected of them and tend to shoot down new ideas or innovative solutions to existing problems because no one can be bothered to step out of their comfort levels. Too much bureaucracy and politics around everything.

Advice to Management

Hire technical people and don't give out promotions based on who can talk better - most managers are not technical enough to understand their role.
