- 5.09 Jun 2017Co-OpFormer EmployeeRed Deer, AB
The company will allow you to take on many responsibilities and learn whatever you want. The environment was great, very fun and friendly coworkers
The workload for most people at the company was too much. Work life balance was very poor and many people were uncertain about their future at the company

Nothing much to say and this company is good for an entry level person to learn something about the embedded development
Nothing to say. Self learning is the best way to learn, simulate the knowledge and apply it in the work environment

The people you work with are smart and make it feel like a smaller company. Good ability to advance. CEO has done a great job turning business around
Appliances will aways be a very low margin business. They keep reducing benefits. Sale to a Chinese company. Reduction in higher level jobs part of life

The growth potential and leadership development programs at GE are tremendous and are definitely the strong point of the company
Working as an employee at such a large company can make you feel overlooked and not cared about. GE pushes their employees to the extreme and does not compensate well or recognize outstanding effort/performance.1

People collaborate and are available to help each other. Technical focus on products is impressive. Breadth and depth of knowledge across the company is second to none. Benefits are good but declining. Permissive time off policy is appreciated by most. Compensation is very competitive especially in areas of the country with lower cost of living.
Operational excellence hampered by lack of digital integration of data and fragmented process ownership. Much time is spent in manual back room activities manipulating information rather than moving the technology forward. Not enough recognition of experienced employees in a company that is very sensitive to diversity. Discrimination is not overt, but present. Some degree of nepotism detracts from claims of being a true meritocracy.GE Response6y
We work hard to encourage a diverse, welcoming environment. If you feel that the company is not sensitive enough to diversity, please don't hesitate to speak with your manager or HR manager. You're also welcome to anonymously contact our ombudsperson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your detailed response!

Great company to work for they are very ethical in how they treat people and all the other workers were easy to get along with
there really wasn't anything that struck me as a con at GE. I guess being ChemE and going into a place that doesn't staff many ChemE's because they don's tailor to ChemE skills you take a bit of a pay hit.

Technical depth (engineering) or other technical fields. Large company size - lots of internal move opportunities (if only theoretically) Resource availability
Too big to be efficient Theoretical opportunities seldom play out HR and Finance play too big of a role in management (running the company instead of leaders and managers) Very slow to make any significant change Compensation/benefits are not competitive to market2
- 5.010 Jan 2023Human ResourcesFormer Intern, less than 1 year
Work culture is fantastic and the healthy competition among the employees to contribute to the growth of the company is mind-boggling.
As it was virtual internship,it could have been more interactive

flexible working culture, less hierachial culture.
salary is rather low and workload can be quite harsh...compare to other companies in the same industry.1
