    I worked at GE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of development opportunities, great stuff (on paper), and with the right leadership; you could do well. Leadership off-site and the vision they espouse is outstanding. Not sure how there is a disconnect between corporate and the local plant in terms of leadership values and ideals.

    Cons

    This location's leadership is more about backstabbing and micromanagement. Everyone acted like you were trying to take their job or trying to do their job. They don't believe in getting both sides of the story, just whom they want to believe and push an agenda that they previously set. Steal ideas as well.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to both sides of the story and follow the facts. Leadership lacks credibility when facts are ignored. Additionally, a good idea is just that, should not feel threatened by good ideas. A place hostile to initiative is doomed to never reach the heights they could.
