    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.

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

    Pros

    - This company really empowers it employees to take on new challenges and try innovative ideas.
    - I found the culture very accepting and encouraging towards new employees.
    - Amazing understanding of work/life balance. Unlimited vacation and flexible work hours empower employees to find the right balance.

    Cons

    The unlimited vacation policy can be a bit unnerving for those who need clearly defined vacation and work hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on your employees, they are a great investment.

    Pros

    Permissive time is great, and there aren't many things cooler than jet engines

    Cons

    Lots of penny pinching these days, and there seems to be lots of decisions being made with a short term, financial mindset. Also, as an engineer, you can't actually touch anything in the shop because of union rules.
