    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.
