    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

    Legacy Programs bring continuity to multiple businesses. It is easy to move within businesses. Great educational benefits as well.

    Cons

    Currently, there is a major upheaval and the uncertainty is distracting. It is hard to get employees to concentrate on work while they worry about their future employment.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure only once per year so people can focus on their jobs instead of what keeps them up at night. It's hardly productive.

    Company let the financial side take too much control. Poor recent investment decisions missed global trends to a greener world. Now needs to move forward fast on emerging and disruptive technologies to catch up.
