    I worked at GE Aviation (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work, I was given a lot of responsibility from day 1. The training provided was extremely useful and was accessible all year round. Extra curricular activities were organised regularly to aid networking. The benefits are fantastic, even for an intern.

    Cons

    The job prospects as an intern are slightly frustrating as after a year of working for the company, I still had to apply to the graduate scheme. I would think that a year is long enough to see if someone is a good fit.

    Advice to Management

    I felt there was sometimes a disconnect between the shop floor and the management. I think it would benefit the company if management listened more closely to the ideas that the shop floor had.
