    Pros

    For my position it was great working with people who are open to simplifying their current process.

    Cons

    Getting a simplification project complete is extremely challenging in most areas because the people are unwilling to adapt to the new Digital culture GE is pushing too.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your leaders on why Digital processes are taking so long to implement. You may find out that your leaders are not open to changing their own process in which it makes it very hard to implement new technology.
