    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at GE full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Regional Exposure and Large Scale projects are a huge draw and creates the potential for a concrete experience and skill set.

    Cons

    Not a uniform culture (or benefits) across GE entities or countries. So the potential for a "silo-ed" environment is there, and that may not suit some people.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone with respect and respect will in turn be duely rewarded.
