    Pros

    Work/Life balance and benefits are great. Unlimited vacation is a great benefit, use it wisely. Interesting projects and challenges which will take you places.

    Cons

    People. Egos are increasingly difficult to manage depending on groups. Lots of bureaucracy and mindset of the past.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to have vision and a reality check. We are no longer in a 2001 Power bubble and need to understand that improving the business starts by improving the dynamics of each individual team.

    I worked at GE Power full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Whatever is left with the brand value

    Cons

    Executive level employees are usually very inexperienced in the roles they take. None of them had a prior experience of the services provided.

    Advice to Management

    With all the turmoils inside the company, you used top talent employees. And there is always a circulation in every department, Every 4 years the whole department quits their jobs and you have to rebuild from the scratch.This doesn't look like a sustainable business.

    I worked at GE Power full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits, great 401k match...compensation was top notch in manufacturing field. Hard to do better

    Cons

    As a manager working with the deep rooted union teamsters could prove a major pita most of the time. Higher managers failed to back front line managers with disciplinary actions which undermined our authority.

    Advice to Management

    Back your managers and supervisors instead of backdoor catering to union employees who milk the system . Praise the good ones and the teamsters reps will play along.

    Pros

    Extremely interesting projects
    No micro-managing
    World class engineering tools

    Cons

    Upper management lacked vision
    Beauracy
    Too many layers of management

    Advice to Management

    Present a clear vision. Senior leadership needs to focus on long term plan versus playing the quarters game. Empower divisions to make SLTs to run their business instead of corporate and hold them responsible for their P&Ls. Reduce corporate layers - increase efficiency of divisions
