    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

    Very challenging workplace, which is what I was looking for.

    Cons

    Ex-Alstom employees and Ex-GE employees, have a stark contrast in work ethic, which causes unproductivity. Legacy GE is #1 for a REASON.

    I have been working at GE Power full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Challenging projects, talented colleagues, evolving product that is really re-shaping the grid, cannot really think of any more but it asks for more than 20 words

    Cons

    Worse benefits over the years; No promotion opportunities (has not happened in the last two years at my site); Vague long-term product roadmap; Hiring freeze while still cutting experienced staff off, double workload for the rest.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treat your people simply as resources, this company needs more leadership.

    Pros

    Challenging work with diversity and global exposure. Great culture including integrity.

    Cons

    Not communicating very well the strategy in recent restructuring that is impacting jobs for multiple employees with many years of service at GE.

    Advice to Management

    Be straight, transparent, and don't drag this out longer than needed.

    Pros

    Will take chances on people; pay is great for the area; work with smart people (mostly);

    Cons

    Everyone is doing the work of 2 people (generally); leaders tend to make short sighted decisions that interest their bonuses more than the health of the company; benefits are getting cut over time

    Advice to Management

    If they're coming to Glassdoor for advice we're more screwed than I thought
