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

    Pros

    Coworkers are generally positive, helpful, and reliable. Company has been around forever and is likely to stick around for decades yet.

    Cons

    Risk averse. Engineering's best days are likely behind the company, and in general new products are highly derivative. Sharp leadership, but I wonder how much they can do in a tech economy.

    Advice to Management

    Just because it says digital, doesn't mean you should buy it...

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

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Clean and safe work environment. The jobs themselves are very interesting and technical. Lots of flex time and time off (once you complete 90 days probation)

    Cons

    The team environment takes some getting used to. I fell like I'm not part of the "club" sometimes. The training is all dependent on who is or is not willing to teach you.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, looks good on the resume, permissive time off, community involvement, important for national security and economy. Many people seem to be very happy working here.

    Cons

    Such a frustrating and disappointing experience working here. I thought I was making a lateral movement by coming to GE but it has ended up being a big step down and away. Down from the level of authority and influence and fulfillment that I had at my previous company, and away from the career path that I want. The job I was hired to do bears little resemblance to the job I perform. There is a major cultural divide between younger people and leadership who are focused on progress, and older generations who just want to be left alone until they retire. An incredible amount of effort is required to do simple things. More red tape than you might realize.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck. I have no idea what I would do if I were you guys. All of the managers I work with are wonderful people who are doing the very best they can.
