    I worked at GE Oil & Gas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule (9x80). diverse employee base. Final product of BOP stacks are impressive in size.

    Cons

    Assemble process for Blowout Preventer Stacks Final-Assembly has virtually No structure. Build occurs as parts arrive in any order. Parts arrive severely out of tolerance and still used in assembly. Customers have representatives on site with full access to factory, they seem to drive to tone of acceptance testing, not engineering.
    Specific building is dated, office area felt like a dungeon, dark with 6-foot cubical walls. Air conditioning was turned off during summer after hours & weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce access of customer representatives; institute part verification at vendor site, do not accept OOT parts

    I worked at GE Oil & Gas full-time

    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.
