    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

    Enjoy my coworkers and relationships with the customer. Looking for something more independent however. Company is too big for my personality and comfort level

    Cons

    Location and not my true passion. Being such a big company it does not feel personal enough. Feel like part of the herd

    Pros

    GE is transforming. A lot of growth and opportunities if you're on the cutting edge.

    Cons

    Low stability right now. In a few years it should settle down

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing the people who are doing the work that keeps you in business in favor of hiring people that might create new business.

    Pros

    learning opportunities, flexible work schedule, 2 days WFH a week, nice people to work with in the Global Patent Operation

    Cons

    Sometimes you feel unappreciated or undervalued, uncertainty to the companies future at this moment

    Advice to Management

    make sure to make your employees feel like they are respected and valued. A note to their spouse is not a way to help them feel appreciated.

    Pros

    The people and environment is great! Everyone is busy, yet they are still happy to stop and help you! Additionally, as an intern you are not just given busy-work projects. I worked in the manufacturing plant, and the projects I were given had a big impact on the company.

    I value my time I had with GE!

    Cons

    I worked approximately 10 - 13 hours per day. It wasn't mandatory to work over-time, but my projects required me to stay in the plant longer than 8 hours.

    I worked at GE full-time

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to work in new areas every 6 months. This allows you to get a breath of learnings in a wide variety of IT areas.

    Cons

    As management changes quickly, roles can change during a 6 month role
