    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.

    Extremely interesting projects

    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

    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.
