    I have been working at GE

    Pros

    - lot of freedom to choose when and how one will accomplish the work.
    - adequate time for self-learning
    - beautiful campus
    - work-life balance

    Cons

    - limited avenues for working on projects which are technically challenging and have huge impact
    - technical ability is not recognised sufficiently enough. Management is more interested in keeping the show going in terms of getting some work moving.
    - not a great place for folks who are more technology centric and less focussed on moving ahead in the career ladder through networking
    - candid talk not encouraged.
    - quality of colleagues is not top-notch

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do honest and critical analysis of the impact of the organisation in Bangalore. Do not tom--tom ordinary work as something extra-ordinary. Make people feel valued for their technical ability.

    Former Employee - Intern in Mumbai
    Former Employee - Intern in Mumbai

    I worked at GE as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn, Highly talented and motivated peers. Very professional and has a fair appraisal process.
    They spend a lot of time on development of their employees

    Cons

    It is a very big company. So it can be very difficult to make a your mark or get noticed. The appraisal, though fair , might not be to your expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and do something such that every employee feels valued instead of feeling like he is lost in a big ocean.
