    Brutal with employees when numbers or stock don't look good. Getting cheap on travel and living, except for executives of course. Discount on GE appliances was a joke. HR in America.

    I worked at GE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Leadership is encouraged and well developed compared to most companies!

    Constantly changing org structures. Its hard to learn and get things done when things change SO frequently.

    Its time for some of the long term folks to move on. They are too stuck in 'this is the way we have always done it, no need to change now'

    GE is changing to a digital industrial company and continues to look toward the future. It is an exciting place to work with opportunities to grow in your career.

    I have been working at GE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for am OEM allows me access to drawings. There are teams of people that have one goal and one focus.

    Cons

    Many people are not required to produce deliverable items allowing them to coast. HR has too much power.

    Advice to Management

    don't allow people to coast always look to the people within the company with the experience. Pay attention to complacent people do not allow them to stay stagnate.
