    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at GE Aviation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    To start, the benefits are great. The flat organization layout was a pleasure to work in for driven people that don't want people breathing down their neck. Starting wage was leading in the industry and attracts high quality people.

    Cons

    With the flat organization comes great responsibility and the need for business sense. Therefore some people made it past their 90 day probationary period that probably shouldn't have and cant handle the responsibility that is put on them so they don't carry their weight and with no management they have the freedom to act in such a manner. On this list i will add the layoff, not the companies fault but still unfortunate, Covid-19 caused the layoffs to happen but the Boeing 737 MAX didn't help either. I will give it to GE Aviation they fought long and hard for our jobs but in the end couldn't survive with the workforce they had.
