    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    New facility opened in 2016.
    Weekly happy hours if that is important to you
    onsite gym-free
    ping-pong table
    Cold brew, popcorn, keg
    Summer hours
    Permissive leave (means they don't track vacation/ PTO which results in people generally getting 4-8 weeks off a year)

    Cons

    This office is struggling to create its own culture since it opened in Marlborough in 2015. There is close to no senior leadership on site and the lack of leadership is palpable. They opened a new facility to be in the biotech hub and are so desperate to fill roles they rush to fill them and don't hire the right talent. This creates an office of unqualified people, bad culture, lack of leadership, extremely high turnover. Turnover is so high, it means you are either always doing 2 jobs, or cross-training a new hire... it's exhausting.

    During recruiting, they will try to spin it like this: "great opportunity to be in Life Sciences industry, be part of biotech", but I would not recommend anyone I like to work for GE Life Sciences in Marlborough. Everything is run out of the UK, and the Marlborough office is a satellite office... very much "out of sight, out of mind".

    GE likes to hire cheap, so most people are under 30, inexperienced, with high millennial expectations, thinking the world owes them everything and they don't need to work for anything. Most people I worked with said that they were sold a job completely different from what the role actually ended up being.

    The business is run in a "make the current quarter" mentality where they do anything to make the current quarter revenue numbers.

    HR is offsite and extremely useless. Good luck if you have to hire anyone... you will be responsible for drafting the role, posting the role, screening candidates, scheduling interviews, extending the offer... basically you have to be HR AND your actual job here. If you have any kind of issue where you need HR help, good luck!

    Given GE's overall problems as well, I would steer clear of working for GE in any capacity.

    Advice to Management

    The US region is your largest region. Start acting like it and require the senior leaders for the USA to be located in Marlborough and show visible leadership on a daily basis. Don't just fly them in for a beat down session when numbers are looking bad.
