    I have been working at GE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to see lots of various products and work in different types of business. very open to movement between functions. Flexible work after proving yourself.

    Cons

    Leadership is not always chosen/promoted for the right reason... it seems to be getting more about who you know and less about acheivement being recognized. Retention problems.... losing good people because engagement is low.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employees and engagment. Present career paths and development programs. Refocus efforts on lean ... get back to basics.
