    I worked at GE (Less than a year)

    Pros

    GE is great company. The people there all supply a lot of mentorship, and are smart. The work is challenging, and as an intern, you usually get real work. It is a pipeline for the future jobs, which is helpful. Plus a lot of interns to hang out with. Young company. Pretty good work life.

    Cons

    The feel of the company, can be slow sometimes, but they also build really complicated expensive machines. The decisions are made from afar, there is red-tape. A few interns got stuck in really bad roles, usually if you are a returner you can have more say in your position.

    Advice to Management

    Speed up the work cycle
