I have been working at GE as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

not too many really. good for a temp stop gap but that's it

Cons

you have to watch your back , politics are very prevalent especially in the blending room, the tools given are not up to par for the job required, you have to work with grinders that don't last maybe 2 months or less. The miniature grit blaster is constantly ineffective for the speed needed, Training , you watch for 1-2 weeks then they may let you work on a bucket by just removing over spray. They are always in short supply of reamers needed to clear holes. you put work orders in for repairs on grit blasters and grinders that may or may not actually get fixed a lot on bubble gum and bailing wire fixes all the while hollering about production,

Advice to Management

start listening to the actual employees instead of having M A U employees on 1 yr contract and then rehire more 1 year temps, that is why quality is never consistent.

    I have been working at GE full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, even as the rest of the world is offering dwindling benefits. A regimented employee review process: you never have to wonder where you stand. Excellent talent: once you are in, you know you are among the best. Superior technology: cutting edge, forefront of all that the world has to offer.

    Cons

    Forced rank system: employee review is a double edged sword… you have to perform to stay in the pool. This is not a con, if you perform well.

    Advice to Management

    Labor may be cheaper in developing countries, but what is the ultimate cost to productivity? Invest more in agile development, continuous integration, and employee development, regardless of where the employee resides. Attainable goals vs. arbitrary dealines.
