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

    Pros

    Able to work independently. Hands on in nearly all decisions of facility. Flat organization = fair to all (no seniority preference). Able to learn as much as you want about any area of the business. LOTS of room for growth in this position OR to any other position within GE. LOTS of opportunity to be trained in many facets of the industry. FANTASTIC benefits (best I've seen outside the military) such as amazing health, vision, and dental insurance, tuition reimbursement to go back to school, 401K match up to 4% PLUS an additional 3% given by GE, 2 weeks paid vacation per year, 1 month paid sick time per year, approx. 13 paid holidays per year, 1 week paid personal business time per year, MANY other ancillary benefits such as discounts on endless products from hotels to ipads, help with daycare costs, and much more. Full flexible schedule. Team environment. Plenty of overtime. Great pay. Very accessible advancement.

    Cons

    None. There really are no downsides.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The probationary period is completely normal compared to any other company.

    Many career opportunities across corporation.

    Cons

    Uninspiring leadership at the business levels. Lack of vision and strategy. Large, bureaucratic operations. Benefits continue to decrease, pay relatively below market values.

    Advice to Management

    Hold leadership accountable for more than just hitting the numbers. Morale and strategic growth are important. Drive agility into your businesses.

    I have been working at GE Aviation full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are competitive with other companies. It is relatively easy to get around the main campus and satellite campuses are only a short drive.

    Cons

    The organizational structure is modified relatively often to adjust for business trends and needs. This tends to mean that immediate manager changes fairly often.

    Pros

    Bright people, lots of interesting work, good pay

    Cons

    Management is challenging to deal with - they are trained to believe that they are by default smarter than you due to the fact that they are GE managers.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be facilitators to help staff complete their work, they shouldn't be involved with day to day details - pushing their opinions on how it should be done. Leave it to the experts.
