I worked at GE as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Worked closely with several full time employees and got to feel like an important part of the team, worked on several projects that were actually included in the final customer release

Cons

Bureaucratic red tape was clear at many points - many times the tools that we were required to use were slow and inefficient. There would be times of sitting around waiting for software to update or to function properly.

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

    Pros

    Great employer reputation and investment, but internally, the quality of the employees does not match its reputation.

    Cons

    Salary and Benefits are no longer as attractive as 10 years ago

    Advice to Management

    Please recognize that current employees are no longer the very best, so the need to recruit the very best (once again) is more acute than ever.


  2. "Very traditional (not lean) business model"
