    Pros

    Customer focused with strong desire to listen and empower clients with a diverse set of applications and associated add on and tools

    Cons

    Needs to focus more getting out new features more quickly and effectively, recent rifs have lost some valuable knowledgeable folks, needs to think more long term and consistent with management.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to move around the organization.
    Great leadership training in Crotonville.
    Work can be challenging as the problems are complex.
    For a large organization it is generally very well run and is working to be more agile/lean.

    Cons

    HR and Finance have too much influence in the organization.
    As a larger organization it can be frustrating get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Less reliance on contractors, you don't get what you pay for. It cost more than is capture on the P&L statement.

    I worked at GE Healthcare as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were alright most of the time.

    Cons

    No direction, no training whatsoever, no tools to do the job, and every IT drone having to deal with four or five "project managers," mostly via remote sites and phone call meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Strip out about a dozen or more layers between the CEO and the lowest drone. Treat employees like they are worth more than a number on a spreadsheet.

    I worked at GE Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers were wonderful and the flexibility to work from home was great.

    Cons

    - medical benefits has recently gone down in regards to cost
    - communication, if any, was rare across the board. I was part of a focus group to increase the communication. We identified ideas but none were fully implemented
    - work life balance is way off balance. The employee reductions have increased work loads of the remaining team members. I know a lot of people that put in additional hours after the normal work day
    - You are only a number to GE and that is all that they care about.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of wonderful co-workers have left for greener pastures in recent years. Upper management needs to listen to the people in the trenches so they can retain employees

    Listen to the employees. High level management focus on their own careers

    I worked at GE Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mature, dedicated workforce; flexible work schedules; great benefits; liked my job there a lot minus the frenetic pace and often unreasonable expectations

    Cons

    Very high targets; expected to meet customer sat while workforce is being reduced and existing staff are overloaded; minimal formal training, must self-train on most products that you are expected to support, then you are evaluated on your ability to pull info from other people who have been there a long time and have the knowledge only in their heads

    Pros

    Compensation is high for this area. If you want to work in a very structured environment with heavy process overhead (Lean Sixth Sigma, internal GE program structure), and can land a good job, then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    It's great if you like the heavy bureaucratic process environment, until the area you work in is targeted by upper management for contraction. Unfortunately with all of the overhead, less time is available for actual innovation. That's what is killing the product I used to work on.

    Advice to Management

    GE is full of secrets and therefore the rumor mill runs wild. Be more transparent and realize that in healthcare systems, the assets you have are in people's heads. When you lay them off, it's gone and you can't always get it back.

    Pros

    Generally flexible work arrangements. Solid company with good reputation. Decent benefits. Great facilities, cafeteria, lots of parking, etc. Most people are dedicated to their work.

    Cons

    Common complaint is that quality is low on priorities despite how they say it is. Big company with lots of reorganizations and outsourcing. Social aspect drops quickly in some departments.

    Advice to Management

    Complete projects well and assign projects with concentrated resources.
