    I have been working at GE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -Career opportunities are virtually endless provided you have the flexibility
    -The ability to work remote is phenomenal
    -The access to interact with executive leadership is great

    Cons

    -Highly matrixed organization...hard to know who does what exactly
    -You get too many teams working on the exact same solution
    -Lack of stability at leadership positions

    Advice to Management

    Change is good, but there is a such thing as too much change at once. It does not allow anyone to feel like there is stable operations, so it feels like there is always a moving target for achieving your goals, not metrics, as you can manipulate metrics to be met, but overall goals of making a difference. It feels like we are dealing with the same issues year in and out, and can't truly resolve issues and grow because there is constant change.

    I have been working at GE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great development opportunities. Plenty of opportunity to move between divisions, allowing you to learn across multiple industries. Really smart people work here. Permissive work leave and flexible work arrangements in some cases.

    Cons

    Change fatigue. Rash decision being made to move the stock price at the expense of people. The Alstom acquisition has proven to be a big mistake in terms of quality, operational excellence, and the fact that it is a terrible cultural fit.

    Advice to Management

    Always put culture and employee first and they will innovate and take care of customers. Cut your losses on Alstom.

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

    Pros

    Diverse portfolio allows for dynamic careers. Work-life balance has always been good for me. There is even significant paternity leave for fathers. I feel the amount of vacation and personal time off is overall generous (even after the permissive time off migration).

    Cons

    Recent acquisitions have forced many layoffs of existing employees. With the threat of layoffs always hanging over our heads, and more work added to our plates due to layoffs, it just does not feel worth it to try and start a career here anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Quit thinking about how to make this quarter better, and start thinking of how to make the company better in the long run. If you take a few bruises to the stock price temporarily, long term gains could be higher. Every time executives speak to the public, their only concern is shareholder value. If you invest in making individual contributors fulfilled and less worried about their paycheck, then shareholder value could possibly fix itself.
