    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.

    Pros

    Our mission is to build the Industrial internet. We are changing the world. It's a long journey full of wrong turns and detours. It's exciting and scary. You've got to bring your full personality to work and work at the top of your intelligence.

    Cons

    Too far away from cool things. San Ramon is really way out in the middle of nowhere. It's a long commute from anywhere fun.

    Advice to Management

    Move to Oakland
