    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 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have enjoyed working with GE previously and felt so proud that such company like GE would provide me the pride and efficiency in working that i am aiming for. No wonder that GE is one of most lead in every aspect of our daily life thank you for this great company and thank you for the great chance that would be given by time GE hires me.

    Cons

    few are the downside that i might think of right now but i believe in general this is the company i would always have its products in my daily life.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
