    Pros

    Good company to have on your resume. Belief in ethical business practice.

    Cons

    Really bad culture that differentiates true GE people (i.e. that started their careers with GE) from experienced hires or people acquired as part of mergers. In other words you a re a second rate GE employee if you are not a "true" GE employee (as explained).

    Advice to Management

    Develop a more equitable way of treating your employees (not a two-tiered culture like this). Learn to be more caring of employees vs. the business is bigger than everyone attitude that reigns across GE. Even if it true that business is more important, treat people with more respect.

    I worked at GE Oil & Gas full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Insulation (somewhat) from volatile market, which equates to more job security. A lot of resources to tap into from a BD/sales stand point. Great stop to pad your resume.

    Cons

    Red tape to get anything done. Redundancy from management - not a clear line of communication from the top down. Transparency is almost none existent from the upper management. Unsure how the recent merger is impacting this now.

    Pros

    The people within the business know what they are doing

    Cons

    Changes from Corporate or Top line management kill employee morale and initiative. Hard to get ahead without knowing the right person as hard work and results are not rewarded. Benefits are horrible.
