    A great place to work for although not suitable for everybody

    Assistant Controller (Current Employee) Amersham, England

    ProsYou are always encouraged to achieve more. Fast-paced and dynamic. Truly international and multicultural. Great benefits. There are plenty of opportunities if you are hard-working and driven.

    ConsWork-life balance is more theoretical than realistic. GE's way of working is not for everybody. You need to run your own PR campaign in parallel to your daily job. Probably the worst HR department I have dealt with in my working life.

    Bureaucratic but adaptable

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disillusioned

    Service Manager (Current Employee) Rugby, England

    ProsReasonable compensation package, co-workers genuinely try to support one another and the tea trolley.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to focus on employee engagement and future strategy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
