    - Engaging work environment. People are generally competent and get along swell

    Pros

    family and work balance was great, the pay was great, the people were great and the atmosphere was great and you felt like you were at home and everyone was family

    Cons

    the past 7 years it started to slowly go down hill and now with the businesses being sold, it makes you sad thinking the great big GE has been defeated and will not be around forever

    Advice to Management

    for the existing locations, please give long time employees a chance to work for you even if it means they have to be remote. people work remote all the time. the ones that go above and beyond in the office will give the same or more when working remote.

    Pros

    Good training programs and many opportunities for growth within your group

    Cons

    GECC has too many people in middle management who don't understand the jobs of the people they are supervising. And when they have a bad apple, they are too intimidated to do anything about it.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the people that actually get the work done for you, and make them managers. You've created a work classification (middle management) who, now that GE is leaving the area, will not be able to get jobs, because they don't have the appropriate backgrounds. Also, HR runs GE, and they have no idea what a paralegal is.
