I have been working at GE Oil & Gas

Pros

Great people, nice environment, decent remuneration and opportunity to climb. I get great feedback and a lot of leeway from my manager and support and recognition from senior management. The rewards and recognition system is so easy to use to reward your own team. They provide a sport facility.

Cons

Integrity and Compliance is an obsession, its stifling, overly bureaucratic (am I really going to win a contract by giving a customer a calendar or taking him to dinner?). Too many GE wide messages overload your inbox, functional organisation is chaotic - functions work against eachother, sometimes I wonder how we make $/£. Workflows for everything and have you tried claiming expenses

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Functional managers need to be more accountable for margin leak and their own issues, PMs cant fix it all.

    I worked at GE Oil & Gas as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Huge company. You are able to meet with people from all levels of positions. I was able to meet the plant manager at my manufacturing site.

    Cons

    Union environment makes it difficult to implement changes. Management is not on the same page as the labor force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complete projects and do not stop half-way to focus on other projects.
