    Interns are not given a lot of work, a lot of freetime. It takes time to implement systems.

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

    Pros

    Latest technology in shop floor recent year, as before it never happen.

    Cons

    Salary below market rate. Useless HR never compare job market salary.

    In addition, full time employee with high qualification such as PhD or Master level with more than 10 years working experience end up same rank with junior level or graduate engineers.

    Not a good place to work if you are looking for excellent salary.

    A lot of useless senior managers around without proper qualification. never do their work properly and don't know anything about products, waste a lot time discussing about "football" or enjoying outside "smoking".

    Treat other engineers as second class citizen compare to R&D Engineers.

    Advice to Management

    HR should review what's the latest market salary of all job function as well as rank.

    Senior management, please listen more to your employees.
