    Good people hampered by excessive bureaucracy, over-complicated procedures, and too many layers of management

    I have been working at GE Aviation as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    - Some very good people, and a good team spirit among those doing the work.

    - A good career prospect for those of the right type (particularly if you're of a bureaucratic disposition - see Cons below).

    Cons

    I used to work in senior technical management (up to company board level) but recently became a freelance consultant, so I'm now just another "minion" within GE Aviation. That gives me an unusual and frustrating view of things, seeing lots of things that I know from experience could be done so much better but lacking the influence or power to actually do anything about it.
    For example, there is a touching but misplaced reliance on bureaucracy to ensure design quality. Rather than produce a prototype to help develop and refine a design and reveal and iron out any major technical issues, and to allow technical staff to focus on what they're best at, too often that time is typically spent churning out umpteen paper reports and studies and struggling with the document review process and the frustrating petty reviewers who focus on trivia rather than the important stuff. Eventually those hurdles are navigated and something is made - which, despite all the paper exercises, still has some design issues that would have been evident if only a prototype had been made earlier in the process. And then there is then a reluctance to fix those issues because the project is by now running late...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, take some time away from your ivory tower and and just try working efficiently and effectively under the processes, procedures and constraints you impose on your staff. And talk to people like me. I'm sure it will be a real eye-opener.
