    Pros

    For the most part, a meritocracy based company. There still are some people left that have the old GE values.

    Cons

    Used to be better; after they started divestitures everything went downhill. Would not recommend.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of your audience losing their jobs at employee all hands meetings!

    Pros

    Leaving at the end of the day.
    It's a job to start your career, but not to grow it.

    Cons

    Love of buzzwords.
    Well below market value pay.
    Shrinking portfolios and company.
    Political even at hourly levels.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop lying; I understand this issue is systemic in GE. This can be seen by how many investor lawsuits are coming down on the company for the SEC violations, but lead by example not by what you were taught.

    Pros

    - Engaging work environment. People are generally competent and get along swell
    - Learning opportunities are plenty. New situations and clients provide constant engagement.
    - Great Management. Managers and team leads do have your best interests in mind and will help you grow and enhance your competencies.
    -Events and Participation. Every day seemed to have a planned event or guest speaker or get-together. Highly inclusive environment.

    Cons

    - Division of labor was perhaps too divided. Sometimes you had to wait around on a portion of task to be completed by someone else, even if you could have done it yourself.
