    I worked at GE Healthcare (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work with the brightest and the best, who are enthusiastic and make a difference every day.

    Cons

    Every employee is disposable. Selective/subjective retain top talent 'culture'.

    Scarcity of genuine support in career/or path, depending on your perceived value to the business.

    Numerous "leaders" would do better to be managing processes, not people. Disappointments abound when one who is not a genuine manager is in an executive/leadership role.

    Morale is inconsistent, mainly due to inadequate communication.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to, and actually support, the people who are doing the work - Then, take action.

    The talent is there, take advantage of it and make applications flexible and intuitive.

    I worked at GE Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    GE Healthcare has a very intelligent workforce and the opportunity for global exposure enables broad perspectives. I felt that the mission of GE Healthcare was truly improving the health and medical outcomes of patients around the world. Use of processes made next steps and phase gates clear (though there was sometimes lack of clarity on roles).

    Cons

    With a global role, you end up with a fair number of 6 am or 9pm conference calls that can be difficult to plan around. GE Healthcare is trying to adapt to a rapidly changing health market and that can be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Cross product and service line collaboration needs to be made much easier to do for the benefit of customers. GE Healthcare has the size and clout to enable great value and solutions for customers. Executing on that is often difficult with the current organizational structure.

    Pros

    Established company with stable job, benefits, formal internship program

    Cons

    Internship may not be actual work, or they may not be able to provide new projects if you finish your assigned work quickly.

    Advice to Management

    More flexibility with internship projects based on skills and abilities of intern.
