Here’s what current and former employees have to say on Glassdoor:
“Pros: Privileged to work with some really smart people, always learning; great benefits – healthcare, compensation and advancement opportunities. Cons: Every 6 to 9 months, departments are reorganized, restructured, consolidated, moved, etc.; GE Retirement Pension no longer an option with new employees.” —Former lead systems designer
“Pros: Great place to grow, train and diversify; huge company with different businesses; good benefits; I had great managers all along. Cons: Too many leaders; unhealthy professional competition levels; very political culture.” —Former senior QA manager
“Pros: Random activities (science week competition, whole day volunteering, whole day activities on Diwali); great learning support (paid education/safari online/conferences); some great co-workers. Cons: Most engineers are too old to know cutting edge technology; extremely hard to push for new technology; development work –20% non-development work (testing, docs, meeting); confusing management structure; seniority trumps performance – will not get promoted unless you have worked long enough.” —Current lead software engineer
“Pros: Learning opportunities; scope of activities; transition to other GE business; finance is a key/critical function at GE; exposure to senior leadership. Cons: Salary and benefits; flat organization – limited opportunities to be promoted to executive level(s); work-life balance; poor financial systems and software.” —Current finance manager
“Pros: Great work environment; employees are very smart and very proud of their work; always challenging each other to improve their skills; be ready to work hard and play hard; one of the few former companies I would happily return to. Cons: Long hours are the biggest problem; in technology, there will be times when extra effort is required to complete a project or assignment, but on some teams, this is an expectation rather than an exception.” —Former product manager
“Pros: Great Benefits; management is transparent on where the company is going; long timers have even better benefits. Cons: Compensation could be better and competitive compared to other industry.” —Current field service engineer
