      Pros

      Global brand gets you a meeting anywhere, nice offices, good benefits

      Cons

      Very old and entrenched, American culture. Myopic focus on annual, then quarterly and then at one point monthly results, at expense of thinking or innovation. I left just before the share price tanked from 30 to 6 and the “GE Digital” experiment failed.

      Mixed experience

      Jun 11, 2020 - Project Manager in Leeds, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Interesting work in a large company, I learned a massive amount of new stuff and got plenty of training. It was definitely worth working there as an experience and I came out of it much wiser with some very transferable and marketable skills. Very positive, energizing and busy atmosphere.

      Cons

      The career progression system actively selects and promotes sociopaths. I found myself working for one and got out asap. Not all managers are like this, some are fine but there are enough really bad apples in the sack to make the culture borderline toxic. You either have to become a GE clone or at least act like one. I've never seen so much Powerpoint propaganda. I sometimes felt that this is what North Korea must be like: Everything is wonderful, the Great Leader is happy etc etc.

      Pros

      Culture - Constant want to improve and get better (business and people) this allows you to learn a lot and get a wide exposure. Leaders are always happy to mentor and help. Benefits - Above average pay, comprehensive private medical, competitive pension.

      Cons

      Strategy - Unfortunately GE are reducing the size of GE Capital globally and in the UK. Therefore few opportunities and this is impacting on the overall culture locally.
