    I have been working at GE Power full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very flexible environment, surrounded by industry experts, and thoroughly involved in resolving challenges in the drinking and waste water treatment industry. This place keeps me challenged, and the limit of what I can learn is mostly determined by the time that I decide to put into it. Many avenues are wide open for me to apply my technical knowledge and keep learning. it is such a global company that you work with people everywhere, and if you wanted to, you could MOVE anywhere. The Oakville (Canada) office is a great site, were the community is great, people get really involved with volunteering and any internal events, and my relationship with co-workers is more like the ones with friends. Playing beack volleyball at lunch or going for a hike in the on-site trails is a great way of making the days more enjoyable and letting some steam out.

    Cons

    Sometimes the days can have long hours, and being such a large company, changes are not always easy to implement.

    Do not be fooled by GE name. I have not seen innovation here except to meet the quarterly numbers. Lots of administrative tasks so engineering work was only %20 of the time. Not focusing on customer first. Not useful ombudsman. Workplace discriminated by Human Resources.
