    Pros

    wealth of career and development opportunities available and created for hard working and talented staff. Values and culture based around integrity and merit. GE Capital had a truly diverse workforce and saw the value of this way before many of their FS peers

    Cons

    Top management made some decisions that now look questionable in hindsight, GE Capital is a shadow of what is once was and GE company is still in 'turnaround'.
