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

    Pros

    Many companies these days say they are changing to be more modern... GE is doing it!!! Of course there are pockets moving slower than others but for the most part they are well into this journey... An exciting time to be at GE!!!

    Cons

    If you expect it all to be handed to you and don't want to put the effort in yourself then don't join... Negative people and those feeling they are owed will not do well here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going... Round the corner and keep changing! Don't forget to keep listening to those on the ground.

    I worked at GE full-time

    Pros

    GE is always trying to improve, not because regulators are forcing their hand to do as such, but because they are trying to build a strong company from the ground up. Lots of corporate initiatives that filter down to help create a focused, strong culture.

    Cons

    Health benefits are much more expensive (high deductible plans) than when I started with the company.

    -There are also a lot of development programs here.
    -You get what you put in.

    Cons

    -Some people really do not like the open office space.

    Nothing
