    I have been working at GE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Leadership encourages innovation, process improvement, and empowers employees to lead. The open office promotes collaboration and IT collaboration tools further support the ability of remote teams to stay connected. Leadership is focused on long-term solutions and supports employees to be able to do their work and achieve goals.

    Cons

    Analysis and reporting tools are lagging behind strategic vision, but working on improvements. Not all businesses are aligned with the strategic vision and understand the value of Global Operations organization (understandably - this is a big shift in mindset and culture change).

    Advice to Management

    Continue encouraging employees to bring ideas and new ways of thinking. Take the time to understand what your team(s) do and ask the important questions about their pain points and suggestions on how to improve. Take action and live the GE Beliefs. Hold frequent touch-points with your team and share important initiatives from senior leadership, so that team members do not feel out of touch.

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

    Pros

    Great people, great work life balance(vacation, flexibility, maternity/paternity) and good pay. I personally had great career growth in my time there. Great leadership programs and training (if you get in/them).

    Cons

    My cons are specific to GE's current climate; currently it is a tough time and that trickles into everything you as an employee cares about.

    Career growth is difficult at this time, unless you are willing to give everything for the company and smooch smooch smooch, it is difficult because there are so many people being laid off that are trying to stay.
    Compensation is being "hit" by the current environment; no raises, low to no bonuses, and even 401k hits.
    Job stability.

    Once GE rights the ship (because I know they will), my cons list goes down to just job stability.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being positive, but also honest in particular with those that are/will be affected by the current climate within the company. I am hoping and pulling for you to right the ship. You are a great company and needs to pull through for us who had the pleasure of working there, for the US, and for the customers.

    I have been working at GE full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    People collaborate and are available to help each other. Technical focus on products is impressive. Breadth and depth of knowledge across the company is second to none.

    Benefits are good but declining. Permissive time off policy is appreciated by most. Compensation is very competitive especially in areas of the country with lower cost of living.

    Cons

    Operational excellence hampered by lack of digital integration of data and fragmented process ownership. Much time is spent in manual back room activities manipulating information rather than moving the technology forward.

    Not enough recognition of experienced employees in a company that is very sensitive to diversity. Discrimination is not overt, but present.

    Some degree of nepotism detracts from claims of being a true meritocracy.

    Advice to Management

    Stress “technology” over “industrial” and fix the digital part of “Digital Industrial”.

    Embed digital experts in functional areas to bridge the gap having them work the right things - developing systems that integrate data allowing the functional professionals to spend more time moving the organization forward, quickly.

    Operational excellence could be improved by developing strong process owners with system performance tied to their compensation.

    Recognize and embrace diversity of all kinds including age and background experience. Huge opportunity to create strong diverse teams combining experience and technical capability, with little effort.
