    Pros

    work life balance, highly educated workforce

    Cons

    Some sites are top-heavy, micro manage and typically care about quarterly numbers. Business had gone through several name changes over the course of 10 years. We continue to lose market presence, customers don't know who we are from one year to the next

    Advice to Management

    Need a cohesive approach from Engineering Managers to recognize team. Low morale at times

    I have been working at GE Energy Connections full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Only been in the company less than six months so I'm still learning my way around, but so far I would have to say that some pros for working with GE are the permissive time off policy, and the retirement package is very competitive.

    Cons

    HR/Administration is very low and far removed it seems. Advice, take your time with offers, ask questions about anything during on-boarding, make sure to read and request more documentation if necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Perception is managers are having to take care of a lot of the HR/administrative responsibilities, which I don't believe it's completely a bad thing, but when you don't know all the in's and out's and information is not readily available, your on boarding process suffers, and things can be missed.
