    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 have been working at GE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits.
    Big problems, big solutions.
    Great colleagues.
    Strong networking atmosphere.
    Many affinity groups.
    Strong veteran hiring practices.

    Cons

    Crushingly bureaucratic.
    Strikingly inefficient.
    Constant re-organization has harsh impact on productivity. By the time a re-org smooths out another re-org hits.
    Good manager = good experience.
    Bad manager = bad experience.
