What is overtime like at GE Power?

Pros

Good pay, good benefits, good experience to gain to attain a more professional and respectful job.

Cons

GE bought Converteam and when it wasn't the cash hog that GE tried to prop it up as they closed the whole plant and laid off 350 people. They shoehorned in huge projects which were barely able to effectively function in the manufacturing space. Engineering of drives was rushed and sloppy. Many ECN's issued for field repair costing $100k or more in labor and repair. Due to this barely any profit was made. Relentless overtime requested upon manufacturing staff. Relentless rules and regulations were enforced resulting in a brutal dictatorship of HR assault suspending and firing employees left and right. Getting laid off from GE was like finally dying after slow torture.

Advice to Management

GE needs to stick to light bulbs and dehumidifiers. They aren't competent to handle high tech manufacturing and engineering. Stop farming engineering to India and bringing them in with zero safety training!
