    I have been working at GE full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible work life balance, compensation is about right

    Cons

    The ladder is blocked by red tape, double standards, "if it aint broke dont fix it", do more with less, expensive healthcare benefits ($$$), no professional training, uncertainty at times with no real answers, career paths seem to be designed to select persons. Core values are questionable

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Roll your sleeves up and help out versus piling things up until the stress level is high. Be transparent, if you need help just ask
