  1. "Good place to work, but expect manage your own career vs seeing a plan created for you"

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    management training opportunities, ability to change fields but not company, reasonable compensation, certain benefits are good (401k) but some are avg or below (healthcare)

    Cons

    24/7/365 job, accept it or look elsewhere, work/life balance is your issue to manager, not your boss's, incompetent managers tend to linger and may be promoted vs removed

    Advice to Management

    This about how to recognize and reward the pillars of the company: people who stay in their job for multiple years and perform at a high level, but are not really interested in advancing, relocating, or becoming 'Big Leaders'. Current plan is just turning them off and causing them to look outside the company. Risk to GE from this exodus is high.

    "Too bureaucratic"

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Atlanta, GA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Money and benefits were good. There is a lot of room for promotion if you're willing to play the politics.

    Cons

    Watch your back. People working for General Electric are way too competitive. If you want to get promoted you have to be on your game at all times.

    Advice to Management

    Relax the business etiquette so that employees feel more comfortable. Offering a BBQ every once in a while doesn't make up for the fact that the people working for you are miserable.
