    I have been working at GE Oil & Gas full-time

    Pros

    For long-time employees, the pension is a very nice benefit. The 401(k) is solid, while the health insurance is average. They provide strong leadership training via their Crotonville courses, but will also fully reimburse employees who wish to take undergrad/graduate courses towards a new degree.

    Cons

    Far too much bureaucracy, partly due to its size. They frequently cut costs in the wrong areas and at the wrong times. Executives/management rarely get laid off, while the lower levels constantly feel that pain. Too many managing, with too few doing the real work. Their own worst enemy all too often.

    Advice to Management

    They should look at the waste on the management/executive levels before making sacrifices at the lower levels. All too often, they lose top talent or critical employees due to a lack of raises, recognition or the need for layoffs.

    I have been working at GE Oil & Gas full-time

    Pros

    Training opportunities
    Sideways Movement within company
    Resume builder

    Cons

    Too many middle managers
    Slow innovation
    Risk adverse
    No real leadership
    Oil & Gas (turbomachinery specifically) competes among itself. Turbomachinery basically ran out of Florence, Italy.
    Communication from upper management is bad. Slide show presentations are not explained. Heavy in financial jargon that most don't understand.

    Advice to Management

    Give each site a leader. Cut the fat. Fix the reporting structure.
    Anonymous feedback to the direct manager.
    Too many managers with ambiguous jobs. Most are totally disconnected with real life / daily work.

    Pros

    Very good 401K and competitive salary among industry leaders.

    Cons

    Very Large Corporation. You become a SSO# instead of a person. HR reps who usually have no experience in your job responsibilities are responsible for critiqueing you during interviews for promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and consider their ideas. Their years of experience might actually have more of an impact than your Ivy League degree with no actual field experience.

    I have been working at GE Oil & Gas full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent vacation/personal/sick time benefits, good pay, somewhat flexible hours, great coworkers, and good work environment (physical)

    Cons

    Poor communication/direction/training. Changing management expectations without any communication of those changes.

    Advice to Management

    Let's talk. Really. Let's stop the endless emails detailing how wonderful our company is and how great we're doing in our jobs. Instead, let's discuss expectations and write them down. Perhaps we should review them occasionally. And all the new programs and social media-type applications on our computers are not helping anything. If I can't see your face and you can't see mine, it is not real communication.
