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

Pros

Upward mobility, mentoring, management, positive attitudes and work - life balance were nothing like you'd imagine. Products priced right with new technology products.

Cons

They could improve upon making their excellent benefit package more understandable as it can be quite complex. Other than that the organization has so few faults.

Advice to Management

In general - this large organization may benefit from an entrepreneurial perspective at all levels. This may increase the intensity yet offer a more go-getter attitude.

    I have been working at GE full-time

    Pros

    Everyone knows GE as a company, and it typically carries a strong reputation. I've gained some good experiences, and I've worked with some good people. Flexible working has been nice. There usually is not any scrutiny around working from home vs. in the office.

    Cons

    Everyone is expected to be "on" all the time. So, make sure to bring your phone and laptop even if you are on an international vacation. Decisions are made with "making the quarter" in mind with no long term strategy, which results in quick processes that break later. Employee advocacy is low. Employees are not considered when tough business decisions are made, and front line leaders and HR are left to help employees through these decisions afterwards.

    Advice to Management

    Not everything is about the financials and numbers. There are people that drive our business who deserve to be heard and their opinions considered. It's okay to take a hit on the short term to create a lasting long-term strategy.
