    Pros

    GE Oil & Gas is a company that essentially was created through acquisitions. Therefore, you are dealing with a lot of legacy systems, products, and ways of thinking, but overall there's a lot to be learned from working here. GE is a fantastic company for training and development.

    Cons

    Watch the O&G cycles. When O&G is in a down cycle it is very hard to move around.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more open and honest communication from managers to their teams, especially during a down cycle. Otherwise morale really drops and some of your best performers will leave.
