    I worked at GE Capital (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Simply the best. Empowered work force. You create your limits, as long as you play within the Company's value system. The Company values energy, collaboration, innovation and of course, execution. Great employer of Diversity. When the chips are down, employees are treated fairly. It's a shame they sold it.

    Cons

    All encompassing culture, job and environment. You run the risk that you forget to keep networked externally because things are so challenging internally. Not a reflection of the rest of the financial services industry, but more like a hedge fund or P/E firm (at least before regulation).

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the culture be negatively impacted by the smaller size of GE Capital or the captive outlook. Keep GE Capital great.

    Pros

    Best minds in the country.

    Cons

    Too much focus on STEM and thus sales positions are staffed by an engineer who can tell a joke, for the most part. Business survives in spite of itself.

    Clear direction of business lines. Too many officers.
