I have been working at GE

Pros

In general management is very good. There are a lot of training opportunities within the company for individual contributors. Pay seems ok.

Cons

Offshore IT folks are a disaster, GE gets the cheapest offshore folks they can, projects often take 10 times the time they should. Healthcare benifits are really poor for a large company having a baby is very expensive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fix the IT software development processes. In my experience this is more a matter of getting the right peopel then new initiaves. Reduce the buerarcracy

    I worked at GE

    Pros

    As much as some employers claim to offer internships with "meaningful work", GE is one of the few where a college student can actually leave with an understanding of the impact they made, makes it feel much more worthwhile.

    Cons

    Internship quality can vary somewhat depending on assignments, but then again so can any other job. Slightly lower pay for a CS student than a straight up programming gig, but worth it if you don't want to be stuck at the same desk all day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Program might be improved through increased communication between assignment leaders and the program heads.

    Pros

    Career development opportunities are limitless
    Truly a place where working hard gets results
    Everyone is able to have a voice - you speak up, people listen
    The company feels safe - in the economic turmoil that is important
    Investment in you as a person is good, what is available to you is not limited by your position
    Communication is good, there are so many different ways to hear what is going on

    Cons

    Sometimes it doesn't seem like performance management is tough enough - some people seem to get away with things for too long

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going, keep listening, keep taking notice of what people are saying
    Keep meritocracy in your minds at all times - that is what has made GE successful for so long
    Never forget that it's the employees who make the place great
