What people are saying about GE




P2P Business Partner

Hi everyone, I need help choosing between two offers. First one is with GE Power on their FMP program, base of 70K + 5k sign on. Second one is with Raytheon Technologies on their FLDP, 70K base + 5K sign on as well. I don’t know how worried I should be about GE’s recent news of splitting. My long-term goal is to get a T25 MBA and go to Business Development/Corporate Strategy. I appreciate any help in advance!

      They employee fantastic people. Some are the foremost experts in their fields and it is great to work with and learn from extremely knowledgeable people. GE is an excellent place for women to work. This may be due to the fact that management is somewhat traditional, but it seems flexible work arrangements are considered and awarded to women more frequently. GE has a very strong volunteer group that does a lot of community service in the Upstate of South Carolina. For example, GE is a primary sponsor of Hands On Greenville and employee participation usually is on the order of several hundred employees. Lastly, Greenville is great location, it is not too large but large enough to bring in diverse performances and cultural events.


      The average work week at GE is greater then 40 hours. 'Casual' overtime is often expected and usually puts people work week between 50 to 60 hours. For regular employees GE has an extremely poor compensation plan. Top performers get ~5% raises on ~16 month interval. The majority of employees get 2 to 4% raises on a cycle greater then 16 months. Flexible Work Arrangements are not a 'true' option. There is way too much opportunity for losses in productivity due to the informal 'casual' overtime policy. Manufacturing engineering and design engineering have a poor relationship, so much so that manufacturing will not share office space with design. This causes a lack of space for the design employees, so often times six people are squeezed into a four cube area. Attrition seems to be getting worse and the quality of new employees is not as good as in the past. I believe lack of talent is driven by a desire to rapidly grow so a strategy of quantity over quality was employed. The attrition and lack of talent causes additional problems, employees usually split time trying to train the new people but often see the good ones leave in a year or two, while the ones lacking skill stick around taking a long time getting up to speed. Over the past couple of years GE has started reducing benefits for regular workers. Two good examples of this are a 20% increase in heath insurance and 33% increase in medical copays. GE relies very heavily on 'outsourcing' and feels it is the future of the company, even though the quality of work is often poor. Human resources are completely incompetent and I am not actually sure what value they bring GE.

        GE has a fantastic line of products spanning many industries and markets. Many of them are driven by their ecomagination initiative - solving the worlds biggest problems with energy efficient, environmentally responsible products. You're very likely to be working on a product you can feel good about. Global Research, where I work, is a good place if job security is important to you. Historically GRC handles down markets quite well compared with the rest of the company. GE hires very bright, talented professionals. You'll have the luxury of being surrounded by people who can provide great ideas about your project, even if they've never worked in that particular specialty. My facility has a great 'flex time' policy which allows you to accrue extra hours and turn them into a day off. Great way to augment your precious vacation days. Senior management seems very receptive to new ideas.


        Benefits are pretty good, but the HR managers admit that GE starting salaries are in the 50th-60th percentile for your field. And there isn't much room for negotiation.
