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

    Pros

    Noble mission...some of the best/brightest people...high integrity...opportunities to grow professionally...ability to move horizontally. Most big leaders are genuine and want to make a difference.

    Cons

    Short term quarterly cost focus prevents 'some' big thinking and top line growth opportunities. Some members of leadership let personal agendas get in the way of doing the right thing for customers, employees, and the company.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain focus on culture and growing top line.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Nice people. Opportunities available for the right people!

    Cons

    Very large organization that you can get lost in. If you are identified for opportunities to further your career you can do well. If not, you languish.

    Advice to Management

    Make your divisions smaller and more autonomous so that people trying to move forward in their careers don't get bogged down by leadership and red tape.

    Pros

    GE has a great diversity focus and is making a serious effort to put women in STEM jobs. There are opportunities to advance, benefits are good.

    Cons

    GE moves quickly. This company is not for the faint of heart. You will be asked to do more in a week than some companies will ask in a month. Work/life balance gets blurred. Their onboarding process is awful. Hope that there is an experienced employee in your new department that can help you navigate as information is not well communicated. Often training is trial by fire. It is not uncommon to start a new job with nobody who knows exactly what you need to learn.

    Advice to Management

    There are many new initiatives that are exciting and progressive. Please remember that while these are great in theory, often they don't actually flow down to the font line level.

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Huge enough company to supply company car, phone, corporate credit card.

    Cons

    Hugh company where it takes a large number of people to address administration issues as simple as changing phone providers or updating home address.

    Advice to Management

    Simple to move up the corporate ladder, but most are comfortable taking lateral promotion within their respective fields.

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large company with comprehensive benefits. Nature of my job allows me to work from home when the weather is bad or if I'm not feeling well enough to make the hour commute.

    Cons

    Company was recently acquired so there are several changes coming down the pipeline. Upward advancement has been slowed down to almost a complete halt which also effects the ability to negotiate salary increases.
