Pros

The company has great compensation. Working for GE is currently looked at as being a positive when trying to find a new job.

Cons

Instead of trying to grow most of the aquasitions, GE consistantly focuses on making profit by cutting the bottom line. They constantly look for cheaper ways to build product. While this basic idea is not a bad thing, their presure to do this is extreme. After some time, the quality goes.

Their employees are only numbers to them. Their basic policy is to force out 10% every year. They do this by forcing managers to put 10% of their people into a catagory indicating they are sub-par. This should be based on the managers opinion, not some moron in Bradenton!!!

Advice to Management

1) Listen to your people. I mean the workers, not managers.
2) Think further out than next quarter. Every year, management says the are going to do this, but it does not happen.
3) Listen to your customers. Not just the largest 2 of them.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great co-workers, great training programs. You learn a lot.

    Cons

    Long hours. Very political. No real leadership direction. New benefits package stinks.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers. Some people have great ideas! Engage the team and value your workers. Listen to your customers. If you take care of those 2 things, the company will do great.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Extremely smart, hardworking people
    Process oriented, driven culture
    Great benefits
    Treated employees fairly
    Cared about its people
    Big company with lots of opportunity

    Cons

    Today, I would not work for GE. Integrity used to be paramount, now GE is selling out. NBC will no longer report a fair and balanced view of the government since Jeff Immelt is now on Pres. Obama's advisory board. There is not a shred of journalistic integrity left! I was once so proud to work for a great company like GE; now I'm embarrassed.

    Advice to Management

    Jack Welch - please come back! Jeff Immelt has ruined GE's reputation and shattered the very foundation on which the company was built. The CEO has clearly been "bought."
