    I worked at GE Capital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most meritocratic employer I've experienced. GE is a great place to being a career, especially if one is looking for a company with strong development and training opportunities. I received better credit training here, than offered at "Bulge Bracket" banks. I found that my experience in at GE Capital with respect to structuring, underwriting, and due diligence prepared me to excel at subsequent organizations

    Cons

    Compensation is nowhere near that of typical banks. Also, the organization is largely non-existent now, except where GE Capital aligns with GE Corporate

    Pros

    The management has been very transparent about their decision not to be a Systemically Important Financial Institution (SIFI) and reduce their size.

    Cons

    They are downsizing and as such there are not many opportunities. GE Capital is going to be nowhere near the size they are today.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Your honesty and candor is very much appreciated.
