    I have been working at GE Capital part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I returned to the company after a fee years elsewhere and wanted to work a part time week which i have been able to do. There is flexible working to work from home also.
    Despite the winding down of the business, there is continued investment in training and development, testament to a strong employee-focused culture.

    Cons

    Senior leadership focus too much on the here and now with little forward-thinking or planning, which might explain how it got in the position it is in.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the future, retain strong employees to build the brand back to its best
