    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. It's a large company that creates a lot of interesting products. The people are generally good to work with.

    Cons

    Constantly looking to save costs, which sometimes sacrifices quality. Always looking to transfer suppliers parts from the US to China and Mexico. They save a few dollars per unit, but they never calculate how much money was spent transferring the product.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better mobility options for employees. Often times employees find it difficult to move across departments.

    Pros

    GEHC has many, many subject matter experts to learn from. A lot of exciting cutting edge technology applications and a great committment to research and development. You can become as technically skilled as you desire to be.

    Cons

    Extremely large organization and convoluted processes and procedures can be suffocating from a design innovation standpoint. Large teams sometimes prohibit accomplishment of goals in time with project schedules.

    Advice to Management

    Do-to-say ratio is a critical of impeccable character and integrity; don't make promises to employees that you don't intend on keeping!

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

    Pros

    Okay starting pay for couriers. Decent benefits, but GE has stopped offering the pension plan to new hires.

    Cons

    I had high aspirations for this job, only to have them dashed in the short time I was there. The Tampa office where I was assigned had no manager (the former manager had been forced to resigned due to a criminal indictment.) I was promised a normal day schedule, only to find out I would have to flip flop from the day and graveyard shift regularly. Few weekends off, lack of staff was to blame! Everyday I ask myself, why is this the case at everyplace I seem to work!? Nasty and rude co-workers, the feeling of always being rushed and warned mistakes are not tolerated. Asinine corporate and government rules, not being able to take lunch breaks on some days. Long term affects of being exposed to radiation. Overall, a very hostile and depressing work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Tone it down some. Create a more open and welcoming environment in the pharmacies. Don't let pharmacy managers become dictators!

    Pros

    Doing cool stuff and all the perks that come with a large corporation

    Cons

    My stakeholder lists have 40-50 people. Everyone cares about everything and it feels like if you don't included everyone on an email, people will get upset for not being included. More than 1 person in my function leaves per month...super high turn over. Very stressful. Large workloads.

    Advice to Management

    Work on turnover, work on workloads, work on streamlining

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

    Pros

    Great deal of autonomy in creating your role. Online education at your fingertips. Colleagues are very open to networking. Shift towards a more Lean, dynamic and iterative software development process. Salary is quite good. Work from home options offer flexibility, but the usual issues of working for a global company apply.

    Cons

    GE's culture is very insulated, many have worked there for 10+ years. There is an unstated expectation that newcomers will be able to wayfind and make connections intuitively. Given the size and complexity of the organization, this is extremely difficult.

    Advice to Management

    GE is in dire need of a strong mentoring program, particularly for new hires coming from outside of the organization to the SLP level. Execs simply do not have the bandwidth to micromanage (nor should they.)
