    I worked at GE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is seemingly a system or workflow for everything. GE really does work hard to structure the teams to reduce conflict of interest and relieve the potential for politics.

    Cons

    There is seemingly a system or workflow for everything. It can be very bureaucratic, and many managers will want to see six sigma methods applied even when it isn't appropriate, like treating software defects the same as manufacturing defects.

    Advice to Management

    Develop or hire some technical managers, there are far too many layers of useless management even after the de-layering.
