    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

    Formalized training program. They invest into you

    Cons

    The work is accounting, not finance. Not a ton of focus on financials, more accounting/controls. Company is not doing to hot right now either.

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

    Pros

    Wide range of experiences. Very high work ethic. Always required to give the best of yourself. Pressure is very high, but it will be compensated by learning. If you enter from the beginning, the leadership programs allow you to grow internally.

    Cons

    Lack of long term strategy - quarterly rhythm creates a lot of fluctuations in terms of investment and work demands. Difficult to grow unless you have been there from very young. It grooms people through leadership programs which help network internally with senior leaders and, when you join mid-career, there will always be someone with a better network.

    Advice to Management

    Stability. Focus on growth and review training and promotions.

    Pros

    Seems like a great idea to take the job, they appear to have many benefits and what appears to be a good environment. The only real pro is salary.

    Cons

    Management under qualified and struggle to do their own work increasing work load for their staff. Office politics equal to that of being in secondary school. Huge work pressure and no training. No work life balance. Staff care more about money than service. List is endless, the company are not how they appear to be in interview. They have a terrible attitude towards work which leads to delays and missed targets.
