    I worked at GE Power full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Incredible training programs. Very strong HR function - rigorous and fair. Great opportunities for those that choose to work hard.

    Cons

    If you want to coast, don't work for GE. GE expects your best. For those that have worked in smaller businesses, GE can appear to be complicated and bureaucratic with its complex matrixed organizational structures.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to find and capitalize on the capabilities of non-conventional employees that may not fit as well into what some see as a GE standard employee.

    Pros

    Great compensation, its a world class organization and a high profit industry. Their processes and and professional development tracks are excellent.

    Cons

    Its a highly competitive environment. Much is given, but much is expected. GE is filled with with excellent business talent and aggressive career path followers.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote someone to manage a department that they really aren't ready for. If their reports need to explain the job to them, something is wrong.

    I worked at GE Power full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Lack of career path for engineers in manufacturing trying to stay technical. If you don't want to be in management, there isn't much room to grow. Like most big companies, you will eventually be treated like a number and not valued as a person.

    Advice to Management

    Reward people who decide to stay in their roles to become experts at their jobs, not just for switching roles every 1.5 years.
