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

    Pros

    Insurance starts within 1st 30 days. Pretty good place to work.

    Cons

    Long hours sometimes 12 hour shifts. Not a lot of incentives to motivate

    Advice to Management

    Should really consider boosting the moral of your employees. Give them cookouts, breakfast on Saturdays. Breakfast and lunch on Sundays. Rewards for doing a diligent job. Rewards for a tidy workspace.

    Pros

    Stable Company. Good benefits for me as an older employee. New hires need to be diligent on benefits package.

    Cons

    Huge bureaucracy. Hard to get something done right. Upper management does not listing to the troops in the trenches.

    Advice to Management

    Upper level management needs to do skip-multiple-level meetings to get a good idea what is really happening. Also needs to be done anonymously by a third party.

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

    Pros

    GE offers generous vacation and good 401(K).

    Cons

    Schertz facility is full of unqualified managers who have no idea whats going on, leaving the business unprofitable..
    You can become an engineering manager even if you don't have a bachelors degree (this is literally true for Schertz TX facility). No one listens to qualified engineers who are made to do the dirty work.
    Every project is a disaster and there is not even a single client that is happy. Leadership has no courage to make significant changes to the product or to the management as they have no idea about the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Place qualified managers to lead departments especially engineering teams.

    Pros

    Good people working throughout the company, decent benefits, high tech

    Cons

    Wasteful spending, Low pay, gaps in upper management, low morale, unqualified personnel in upper management, poor decision making from engineering.

    Advice to Management

    Pay close attention to problematic personnel in all levels. They will ruin the overall morale and confidence in the company.

    I have been working at GE Oil & Gas full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Diverse, talented, motivated colleagues. I work with friends from every continent. My current managers are the best I have worked with in 18 years

    Cons

    Low salaries,stagnant mobility, especially if you are good at your job (managers want to keep you). Politics plays moderate to high role in your promotion potential. Top performers are not rewarded equitably.

    Advice to Management

    Advocate for smaller, higher salaried work force. Reduce internal administrative requirements that do not add customer value.

    Pros

    Oil and Gas has their hand in nearly every facet of the industry. Always learning potential.

    Cons

    Where there may be learning potential there is little growth potential unless you have a Bachelors Degree. From anywhere, for anything.
    To move up you need a college degree. Even if you are more than qualified for salary position. A lot of college graduates from up north come to the gulf coast with zero oilfield experience.

    Advice to Management

    None
