    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 have been working at GE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Greatest opportunity for growth I have seen.
    -Very Flexible schedule
    -Unlimited time off for senior employees if you get your job done
    -Great people to work with

    Cons

    -Leadership places politics over business needs (this may be changing)
    -Mismanagement from leadership the last two years - No bottoms up voice
    -Too focused on quarterly earnings and stock price instead of technology

    Advice to Management

    GE has the best technology resources in the world. Leadership needs to focus less on the quarter, and stretch to innovate. The Tesla business model is the way of the future, and the only way to make progress while gaining internal and external excitement. The stock price will increase, and so will profits if GE did this. It needs to be publicly transparent that this is happening for this to work.

    I have been working at GE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is excellent, Salary time off is permissive, so you can take off pretty much whenever you want as long as your boss approves.

    Cons

    job security - Layoffs are frequent now days. Always worried about being let go. Like a lot of salary jobs, you may have to work weekends and nights if needed. Big company, lots of red tape! Will bend over a Dollar to pick up a dime

    Advice to Management

    Make GE Great Again! Give Employee's incentive to do good. as in $$. All this cost cutting has made wanting to go the extra mile non existent. People are only doing enough to keep their job
