For some background, I graduated with my BS in psychology in 2022 and have worked as a Pre-K teacher for almost 5 years (2017-2021), a mental health technician for 1 year and now I’m a case manager. I told myself I’d obtain a Masters in clinical counseling & become an LPC , but I’m more interested in going to medical school (which was my initial plan anyway). Is it less reputable to do medical school online? I don’t think I’d be able to do much of anything in person with a full time job.

How do you move up in ranks from an entry level position? I’ve been at entry level for 10yrs and have been performing higher-end tasks for most of that time. Each time I ask for a raise I’m refused. Now when I interview for supervisor or management transfers that better align with what I’ve been doing the last few years- I’m told I have no experience on paper and refused. What to do?

GE HealthcareDec 11, 2009 - in Milwaukee, WIRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Company encourages innovation and values dedication and hard work. Strong sense of service and attention to customer needs and looks to constantly re-invent itself.
Work/life balance can be challenging at times and has to be managed personally or you will not have any balance.Continue reading

Sales Executive? Keep Looking!Mar 5, 2018 - Senior Account Manager in Chicago, ILRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
- The GE name is worth something. - Leadership programs are good for young grads - Comprehensive product line
I was at GE for a couple years selling imaging systems, although I didn't make out too bad and left on good terms, GE Healthcare is not an employer I would recommend to other sales professionals. - Very high turnover, more than half my team was gone in 2 years including 3 managers. GE sales is churn and burn, they don't give new reps much of a chance and if you have a slow territory, you could be out of a job pretty quickly. I saw many very talented reps get pushed out because GE didn't have the patience to invest in their success. - No commission cap but exceed 100% and your pay factor may actually drop, contrast that to other companies who pay 2x-5x more over plan. - Comp plans are hit or miss and there are numerous gotchas that impact total compensation. Year to year quotas may increase substantially for little to no reason. - Toxic culture, I still cringe thinking about it. - Company is too big and has become sloppy in many respects. Try calling One HR to vet out benefits, I got a 30min+ wait time every single time! Little things like this add up to a bad experience. My point in all of this is that you can do better as a sales pro. Many device companies have accelerators once you hit plan and have a decent work life balance. If you're looking for consistent high earning (250k+) and a good culture, this isn't the company. If you are younger and just getting into sales, GE may be a good move for a few year. My focus here is on sales professionals, I can't speak to other positions like engineering or operations.Continue reading

Returning EmployeeFeb 15, 2023 - Service Quoting Program Manager in Milwaukee, WIRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I worked for GEHC for about 5 years out of college and overall had a great experience. When I had the opportunity to return after 3 years I jumped on it. I enjoyed working with everyone that crossed my path while I was there the first time and the culture is definitely a high point. They have fantastic benefits for employees and positive work environment focused around collaboration and growth.
Sometimes hours can be a bit long in certain roles. I experienced that in my first period of time there. You need to be able to set boundaries with those you work with to create a good work/life balance.

ExhaustingOct 27, 2012 - Field Service Engineer in Milwaukee, WIRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Well known solid company that is not likely to go under in this economy. Salary is good, but below average. Benefits are good, but declining. Good place to use as a spring board if you are just beginning your career, but don't plan to stay too long. Good resume' builder.
No work life balance although they bombard you with work life balance tips and information you can't apply. Pay is below industry standards, bonuses have gone away, insurance has gone up, coverage has gone down. Expectation is a 60-70+hr work week. Constantly reorganizing management and reporting structure. Internal IT systems are archaic causing multiple duplications of work. Be prepared to work long hard hours without the tools you need and to spend hours duplicating your work and obtaining the tools you need. Burned out employees who are doing more with less every day.Continue reading
