  9. "Complete change from growth to elimination"

    2.0
    Former Employee - Assistant Vice President - Audit 

    I worked at GE Capital full-time

    Pros

    I worked for a really good manager and with some knowledgeable colleagues. Work life balance was generally good.

    Cons

    Aside from corporates decision to sell off GECA, leaving all of audit looking for new roles, a few issues to note. Expectation that somebody would be an expert in an area they had no background in. Just because somebody has availability, that is not a skill set. Expectations often unclear.

    I worked at GE Capital full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Co-workers, Work/Life balance, Salary, Team building events

    Cons

    Feeling the company has no idea what their doing. Stock price is poor. Poor leadership - insurance calculation blunder for GE Capital business cost billions. A 10 year old could have seen that coming.. Forced layoffs of hundreds of people. Is the pension even going to survive? Seems to be a movement to layoff anyone over 40 years old.
