    I worked at GE Capital full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Clear direction of business lines. Too many officers.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. High level of integrity throughout the organization. Management appreciates productive employees more than superficial, political employees.

    Cons

    Shrinking of GE Capital has limited opportunites for personal growth. The differences in compensation between GE Capital and GE Industrial further limit opportunities.

    Great company. Big focus on technology and being efficient. There are a lot of opportunities to advance. Great management in place. Big emphasis on work/life balance.

    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
