Approves of CEO

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

Pros

It gives you the potential to learn a lot, many opportunities to move to other divisions, and the engineers are all helpful to have you grow.

Cons

You have to work long hours to meet deadlines. Sometimes over weekends.

Advice to Management

Consider the health of the family when employees are working extra hours. Without a solid foundation, production falls as well as moral.

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

    Pros

    Lots of smart people; generally a very professional atmosphere; opportunities for advancement, if you're willing to play the game.

    Cons

    Very aggressive and overbearing work schedule, work-life balance suffers. Their commitment to 'Lean' methodologies is almost a joke; you must get certified to help your career, but projects are done for the sake of doing projects, not really to help; every project I saw enacted actually made things worse. People are transient - you're expected to move around and change jobs every 2 years or so, or else you're seen as there being something wrong with you. People will implement some new process to make a name for themselves, and then move on and let someone else clean up the mess.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the emphasis placed on Lean projects and how they're evaluated. Let people develop competency and stay put for a while if desired without being stigmatized. Especially for middle leadership - take responsibility for actions; if you implement some new program or process, stick around to make sure it works or fix it.
