    I worked at GE Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    The only reason I stayed as long as I did (2 years), was because of the focus on healthcare. Otherwise, no positives of note.

    Cons

    - I've been an executive at two other Fortune 10 companies and thought I'd seen just about everything, but the mismanagement at GE Healthcare Digital is unbelievable.
    - VP level and up are incompetent - across the board. Look no further than the GE stock price to see that (it's the worst performing stock in the NYSE index).
    - Top performers do not stay more than 1-2 years. Facebook, Amazon, and Google are taking top talent left and right. Anyone here more than 5 years is merely a politician , not a leader. Look around the floor and you see everyone in engineering is over 45 years old.
    - Bureaucracy, bureaucracy, and yet more bureaucracy.
    - Quarterly numbers come first, everything else, including customer satisfaction, comes after. Probably why the stock is in the toilet and shareholders are angry.
    - Silos. Everywhere. As a product leader you will spend most of your time wrangling with half-wits (commercial, finance, and services teams) trying to protect their little slice of the business.
    - Terrible, terrible, health insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are good at - failing!
    In a few weeks, GE Healthcare Digital will be sold off and many of you will be axed. Watching this flaming wreck going down has been fun the last few weeks and will be even more one after I'm gone.

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to jump around from job to job if you're willing to move.

    Cons

    True upward mobility is difficult if a) you aren't in one of their special leadership programs as a young graduate b) you're older than like 38.

    GE caters to too many special interests. They bend over backwards for small segments of the workforce at the expense of most. It's all about image. I could care less about a lot of these niche benefits they give. Just give me the BEST healthcare/vision/dental plan and 401k match around and be done with it.

    Senior Management still seems disconnected, worried about self preservation (due to the culture and processes in place) and more interested in the politics and positioning of their direct reports than in running a competitive business that beats the competition. It's interesting how other companies perceive GE Managers to be so valuable... I just don't see it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop shuffling the deck every 9 to 12 months. You're playing with people's lives.

    Pay a more competitive salary to more than just your 25 to 35 year old employees.
