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

    Pros

    Once GE took over, I cannot recall any pros.

    Cons

    If your company was acquired by GE, first of all, you will lose the familial atmosphere that may have been present. You become a number, not a name. They do not care about their customer base or their employees, only "spirit of the letter" and metrics. If you have an issue to report, they claim anonymity and safe from retaliation, then you find yourself on report. If you have health issues and have directions from your family doctor, a faceless panel of doctors will decide if the directions will be allowed. If you have an appointment, unless your manager lets you make the time up, you will be docked half a day.

    Advice to Management

    Do not let GE acquire your company!

    I have been working at GE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The starting salary was fairly good as well as the hour flexibility and cultural diversity. A lot of positions also offer great travel opportunites.

    Cons

    The corporate structure tends to lead to management with very poor qualities. Most are just yes men who only care about their careers and have blinders on when it comes to confronting difficult employees. Health care benefits are run by a horrible HMO.

    Advice to Management

    Say yes less and why more. Open your eyes and don't just get a pulse of your team, get all the vitals.
