    Pros

    Steady job. Great training and educational opportunities.

    Cons

    I've had a generally good experience. However, despite managements best efforts to keep their valued employees happy, they are not willing to back it up with salary. Promotions are few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Pay to keep your top talent.

    Top pay for talent and company makes a profit regardless

    Pros

    As long as you get your job done, no one bothers you. Loved my co-workers. I was able to work from home as necessary. Many benefits such as 20 sick days a year.

    Cons

    Manager frequently said India engineers would work at half our salary. Had 3 (remote) mangers in a year so no decent review. RIF'd then then offered another position similar responsibilites at 50% previous wages. Lost 401k contribution because I wasn't vested at no fault of my own.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your talent and retain them. Everyone I talk to has done a stint at GE and gladly left.
