    I have been working at GE Aviation full-time

    Pros

    It was good at one time for a period. Variety of products but way behind on latest technology.

    Cons

    Leadership is stagnant and has been around for years. Not much upside, same people keep moving around at top but no real change. Very political. Decisions are slow and require too many people. Good engineers and good managers are leaving because the company is losing touch. Pay is behind and other tech companies are moving into the area paying more. You are given permissive time off and when you do after working major OT, people complain and talk about you behind your back. Sometimes, they call you back the day you take off.

    Advice to Management

    You need to listen to your people and not make decisions because you feel you have the answers. You are blocking progress.... If it does not change, GE HQ will be coming to town to make changes.
