Competent and able workforce, strong work ethic, infinite resources available if management allows it, training programs are great learning opportunities
Feels like a government with the amount of bureaucracy...to many layers of managers and not enough 'do-ers', no bonuses or 'rewards' available to non executives, management has 'ivory tower' mentality on a lot of issues1

• GE exec leadership laudably says the right things about cultural transformation • GE Digital IoT strategy is great with potential to change industry • Many top-flight IT technologists and really good, caring first-level managers
• Legacy corporate-first culture that is slowing down innovation and necessary change (“Who moved my cheese” syndrome) • Middle IT management does not know how to be the change exec leadership mandates (e.g. still bringing in bureaucratic 'Command & Control” managers who are unable and unwilling to make the obvious calls and actions - a don’t “rock the boat” mindset; and who really don’t care about their people and are willing to throw them under the bus)

GE is known for its ability to manufacture leaders and its alumni are leaders in so many organizations across the globe. They put integrity first before anything else.
GE used to have regular employee opinion surveys earlier and stopped somewhere around 2014. A lot of great action items would come out of it and was useful to keep managers accountable and honest. Shouldn't have been stopped.

open style communication; change is constant and you always keep doing new things; allow flexibility in working hours (depends on the managers) - so possibility to balance work and private life
lately little focus on employees development and career progression; on going reorganizations and biz realignment in the last couple of yearsGE Response4y
Thank you for your detailed feedback. We're always working to improve and appreciate your comments.

employees are respected and they are encouraged to develop by paid training and with support from their managers
missing transparency and you cannot have a clear career path

For the lighting group, decent group of account managers in the field. Probably going to lose most of them because upper management does not have sales experience. Decent benefits but not as good as what you would expect from GE.
Newly hired sales team is < 10% for 2015 - Impossible task. No experienced leadership in the sales organization. Account managers are promised a lot and very little is delivered so you are stuck between two unreasonable groups. Just flat out can't trust the management. Very little sales support. Takes a long time to get quotes to customers. Product line is sparse compared to competition.

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

Great brand recognition, many of the factory employees have been around a long time and have a ton of knowledge
Sales management a local regional levels lacks sufficient leadership skills to be effective. Local account managers are held accountable for everything but have no authority to make changes bases on current market conditions. GE Industrial policy of signing any distributor up only pits GE distributor against GE distributor which erodes market pricing. Too much of of the good old boy network means local sales management never gets challenged or held accountable.

The technical part of the job can be very enjoyable. The medical technology is fun to work on. Permissive vacation is great for new hires (you get as much vacation as your manager let's you have...)
Permissive vacation is great for new employees, but it means those that have been there many years are at the mercy of their managers to get the vacation they earned through years of service. Company claims to have a technical career path, but it is very difficult to make it to the upper levels of that path, and I have seen many people who did make it that level subsequently laid off, so it is not a very safe or long term career path. Frequent layoffs at all levels. It is sometimes possible to find another internal job after a layoff, especially for younger employees at lower levels.1
