    I have been working at GE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Never a dull moment! Great opportunities. Useful having a large well known brand in negotiations. Good employee benefit packages and training courses.

    Cons

    Talk the Talk but don't Walk the Walk! No sense of reality. Very insular. Lots of inexperienced personnel on fast track promotion trail quickly ticking boxes and moving on leaving others to tidy up.

    Advice to Management

    Bypass middle management and listen to those at the coalface to hear the unfiltered truth.

    I have been working at GE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Potential to make your mark. if you work really hard you will be noticed. Multinational work force. Lots going on all over GE

    Cons

    Terriible duplication of effort happens all the time. Highly beurocratic. Communication from upper management is poor. Too much reporting and metrics. Company prefer GE 'lifers' to candidates with industry experience. Your HR ref won't know who you are. This is my experience anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate WHY things are happening to the staff.
