    I have been working at GE Power full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very nice people
    Employees are treated like people not numbers
    Upper management is accessible when needed
    Job mostly steady; people stay for many years of life
    Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Stuck on old style of software development
    Duplication of efforts: lack of long term vision results in too many short-term single-purpose projects, many of which get cancelled, leaving little to no code to leverage afterwards
    Too many non-software processes getting on the way of delivering software-based products
    No unified direction to keep up with the latest software technologies. They is mostly voluntary
    Moving up the chain can either never happen or take many years by design
    Company unable to see proactive efforts: unknowingly rewards damage-control efforts instead of rewarding getting things right on the first place

    Advice to Management

    Split from GE-derived practices which negatively affect software product goals
    Revamp your reward system to recognize good software architecture and solid releases instead of having engineers release on-the-fly software and rewarding them when they need to hack some ugly solution or for "doing a great effort" fixing all the bugs they shouldn't have released on the first place
    Update your title system to come closer to software industry and to better reflect engineers level of expertise
