What is a typical working day like at GE Power?

Pros

Paid Time Off is super flexible and great. Good money, a lot of overtime extra money. Good experience for entry level/recent graduates. Amazing people and managers at GE Hitachi, willing to help with your career.

Cons

Very "macho" environment with technicians at plants, it tends to be very uncomfortable for women. A lot of travel to towns in the middle of nowhere. So much traveling you cannot keep a daily routine ever. Work during: night shifts, weekends, holidays, 7 days a week and more than 10 hrs a day. Very stressful environment at the plants (not in the office), management in plants tends to be awful, not GE's fault but still something to consider.

Advice to Management

Let people know during interviews what they will be expecting. Not only travel percentages but work conditions, hours, shifts, stress, etc. Help and support new engineers during outages, don't just throw them and expect them to do good in such a complicated and stressful environment.

Work during: night shifts, weekends, holidays, 7 days a week and more than 10 hrs a day.

How is the office food at GE Power?

Pros

Upward Mobility Name prestige Occasional free lunches Data driven environment

Cons

Low morale Impending lay offs Company in disarray

Advice to Management

Work toward maintaining stable operations. The employee morale is low. No one knows what to expect day to day. News of outsourcing current employees is frightening. We look forward to the day that the internal climate returns to what we used to be. It's not a great place to be right now.

Occasional free lunches
