Pros

Fair treatment to employees. Advancement opportunities are always available if you work hard and prove yourself. The work environment is very good and the company is accepting when you need time off for personal reasons.

Cons

Politics can be extreme in a business the size of GE. Sometimes, due to the size of the company, projects that could typically get completed in a few months in a smaller company take much longer at GE.

Advice to Management

I think that the management at GE does a fairly good job. It would be nice to have our leaders join us in the field once in a while to get a true feel for what is happening in the workplace.

    Pros

    GE holds the FMPs in high regard. Almost all senior leaders are FMP grads and will want to help you succeed. The path to high levels of management is laid out, and is attainable, but you must literally give your life to GE to get it.

    Cons

    People at GE do not know how to relax. They are very concerned with the numbers of hours they work, often staying at the office doing literally nothing so that people can see that they are there late. They love to brag about how many hours they work. A disturbing majority of the Finance employees have either never been married, or are married to someone in GE.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take yourself so seriously. There are only two people at GE who anyone outside of GE has ever heard of.
