    Former Intern - Power Systems and Project Management in Rugby, England
    Former Intern - Power Systems and Project Management in Rugby, England

    I worked at GE as an intern

    Pros

    Exciting project that are based around the world. Good training and introduction to the company and its core values. A lot of site tours visiting GE infrastructure and understanding the supply chain.

    Cons

    Pay wasnt great, but was an intern so wasnt expecting much. Organization of work was sometimes not done properly. Introduction was slow, laptops, access cards, and emails all took 2 weeks to come into place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management very friendly but often busy, so any issues were regularly diverted to other members of staff.

    I worked at GE

    Pros

    Company Values are based on the Employee motivation, have a great comp & Ben scheme- ie. Great medical cover, access to international training & development tools, free staff lunches and participation in to corporate events that increase ones Network base

    Cons

    Bureaucracy in terms of processes hence creating delays
    Favoritism based on ones ethnic background
    High turnover based on pressures from sales

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that all staff are aware of the goals and objectives and clear forecasts so that staff are not under pressure due to sales
    Creating policies on Organization culture to ensure unity and promotions based on performance rather than ethnic background

    Current Employee - Shift Team Leader

    I have been working at GE full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Exposed to global mindset and requirement for team playing abilities is essential.

    Cons

    Rotation of management on Corporate level can send mixed messages to those below. At times the want to save a penny does effect the smaller local GE business while the Global business carry's on regardless. This can sometimes leave a bitter taste.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on genuine, positive drivers. The yearly EMS, while as a concept works, but in practice doesn't. It is difficult for a long term employee to genuinely focus on this and actually improve.
