Pros

Opportunity to advance and leadership programs are the best in the world. Leadership values and committment to company are evident in their success

Being such a large company can lead to communication issues and can be slow to make decisions. But overall decisions are made for long term goals

Advice to Management

Continue to provide opportunities for leaders and managers to advance. The people are the company and continue to develop their skill sets

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Healthcare benefits are good (but they used to be a bit less expensive)
    - Pay is fair
    - Amazing opportunities to move from one company within GE to another while retaining your years of service and benefits

    Cons

    - LARGE organization that is a bit slow to change at times
    - some of the business units are rather political in how they are run (Supply Chain)

    Advice to Management

    Look for inconsistencies in how the different P&Ls are being run, some have great processes and leadership, some have a lot of room for improvement. Keep innovating!


  2. "Great place to work (before purchase by Swiss Re) and GE (the parent company) is a great employer."

    Pros

    This was a company that consistently rewarded employees' exceptional performance, unlike Swiss Re. GE treated employees with respect and as human beings, not as fungible commodities. The benefits were good and pay was commensurate with industry standards. Even though GE Insurance was purchased by Swiss Re (not a change for the better especially after laying off 20% of the GE staff as soon as the deal went through), I recommend GE in general as an employer.

    Cons

    Being part of a massive corporation can be challenging in terms of communication. The pension/401(k)/stock savings plan structure was a bit complicated.

    Advice to Management

    The company was purchased by Swiss Re in 2006, so there is no longer any GE Insurance leadership to advise.
