    I have been working at GE Digital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Unlimited vacation/paid time off. If you do your job well, you can take lots of it. - Great people/ friendly environment. - Low stress/pressure.

    Cons

    - Company is changing financially so you need to adapt fast to changes. - Leadership changes constantly. People leave. All of a sudden you may be reporting to the vice-president. - Not enough training for junior employees. - Location: San Ramon is a very nice/family town, but if you are young or single, you will get bored. Main cities SF and San Jose are 50 min drive away.

    "Digital vision failed!"

    3.0
    Former Employee - Technical Product Manager in New Orleans, LA

    I worked at GE Digital full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Worked with some really smart people.

    Cons

    Vision of building products for multiple GE Businesses was a dismal failure. Leadership ultimately sent Product development back to individual business units. Business units' culture and culture not aligned to forward-thinking digital culture.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at GE Digital full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - great leadership, now pushing Lean principles company wide - proficient, knowledgeable, and experienced co-workers (mostly) - corporate deep pockets to support R&D (NPI/NPD) - some freedom to get involved in varied projects based on personal desire

    Cons

    - politics sometimes get in the way of informed decision making; marketplace agility, product quality/value, and voluntary attrition negatively impacted as a result - compensation package not nearly as competitive as advertised - significant communication and knowledge gaps exist between different teams within the same business (requires bridging at the employee level) - overall business slant towards imposing waterfall based processes in some businesses where agility is paramount in order to be competitive (e.g. software engg.);

    I have been working at GE Digital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are good

    Cons

    Extremely political and corrupt leadership, with 1990s mindset. Managers will accuse, harass and terminate employees by creating false accusations, so they can stay in power. When managers see employees with good work ethic/skills as threat to their job positions, they are quick to take all the credit and make false accusations and get rid of them. Many employees are treated like a piece of spit out gum on shoe sole. Company needs to reform and retain the good employees to be sustain in today's world of technology and adapt to new ideas, which are very efficient instead of being forced to stay with old outdated solutions and project ideas, which the management are used to.
