    I have been working at GE Capital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the Pros of working at GE Capital are their competitive salaries, excellent benefits (medical and retirement benefits). Also their responsiveness to laid off employees and the assistance they provide to laid off employees to prepare to find a job.

    Cons

    Except for the fact that my job has been eliminated and I'm being laid off, I can't really think of any Cons.
