Here’s what current and former employees have to say:
“Pros: I work on a dynamic team of unique individuals, the pay and benefits are good, and the role offers a lot of flexibility. And certain roles at GE also offer Permissive Leave, which is pretty incredible. Cons: GE utilizes contract workers and is not great at communicating with them or holding their managers accountable, and you can’t apply for roles without your manager’s permission, which makes changing roles or consideration of other jobs difficult.” – Current employee
“Pros: Very friendly for work/life balance; you can choose to work longer if you seek to rise faster through the ranks, or if you are looking to dedicate more time towards personal life, that works too; excellent empowerment of employees; you choose when to come on-site vs. WFH (even from different cities); management has improved significantly to be less micro-managing and more supportive; quite a bit of ownership available for projects and initiatives; room for career growth – “Technical Career Development”; great technical mentorship; colleagues always available for help; pay is good and manufacturing, sourcing, quality assurance and supplier quality all under one building. Cons: Higher-level management has a revolving door; too many re-organizations; priorities can change on a whim, and you can get pulled off of a project halfway through and relatively slow in terms of the pace of product development (though that is probably more a healthcare industry thing rather than a GE-specific thing).” – Current employee
“Pros: Work-life balance; job stability; working with experts and robust processes. Cons: Some silos can make moving the needle difficult and average compensation.” – Former employee
“Pros: Stable environment and highly-skilled employees and management. Cons: Limited professional development as fully focused on specific products.” – Former employee
