    Pros

    Everyone is extremely helpful and willing to help you learn.

    It's a large company, which can make some aspects of certain projects move much slower than is probably necessary.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of people at GE say they want to move towards a more "start-up" culture, but I think they need to put more of an emphasis on that to make an actual change.
