    Pros

    The work at GE can be extremely fulfilling, and as an engineer, you have the opportunity to work on some of the most technically interesting and challenging stuff out there. Benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities at GE are very limited unless you choose to join an accelerator program called the Corporate Audit Staff, which is travel-centric whirlwind during which you have no social life.

    Cons

    Low morale
    Impending lay offs
    Company in disarray

    Advice to Management

    Work toward maintaining stable operations. The employee morale is low. No one knows what to expect day to day. News of outsourcing current employees is frightening. We look forward to the day that the internal climate returns to what we used to be. It's not a great place to be right now.

    Pros

    You still have a JOB ??? otherwise, NOT Many Pros !!!

    Cons

    Constant Job insecurity, positions shifting to India and/or China. India and China hasve been determine as "competent/expert" in Engrg which is questionable. They are always looking to eliminate key operating components to $$$$'s. Prediction is that these units will not operate correctly if equipment components have been deleted.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to what is going on around you. Attrition is picking up & the good keepers are fleeing out the door like rats fleeing the sinking ship. It is too bad that after the 04-Nov-2015 when Alstom became officially GE, that GE didn't have their management come in and learn what we do; however, they kept the ole-Alstom Guard to run the business for them. The same Management that created Alstom's problems in the Power Sector.
