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

    Pros

    Made a lot of money for a first job out of school, and provided me career opportunities afterward

    Cons

    Few vacation days, things don't change very quickly at GE, getting acclimated to the culture,

    Advice to Management

    Try to minimize the amount of routine work new hires do and focus on providing opportunities to be creative and learn things outside of the day-to-day

    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 as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay for other companies with similar positions. Decent benefits, not the worst... but certainly far from the best.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, political, heavily focused on "who you know" as opposed to "what you know". Work very little and know a lot of people, get a promotion. Work very hard and only know a few key people, don't get promoted/recognized/appreciated. If you're all about kissing rears in upper management, you'll excel here. If you want to keep your head down and do the best work that you're capable of, go somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    One size does not fit all. Micro-management is a bad practice, but as is macro-management.

    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.)

    Pros

    Great Lean Six Sigma Certification Program

    Cons

    Needs to Advance Culture and Human Resources

    Advice to Management

    Know, leverage, and optimize the talent and experience of employees. Value employees above all else. Respect employees investment in their livelihoods and in the responsibility they bear in supporting their families. Understand and respect the maturity continuum from where young people start their careers to when older people end their careers. Try to manage that continuum in a way that naturally fits the progression of age and family. Don't allow the income between the CEO and the least paid in the organization to be so far apart that it becomes an immoral issue that erodes trust and respect.

    Pros

    Many opportunities, good salary, dedicated people

    Consistently trying to do more with less, seem to take the running lean to the extreme sometimes.
