    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at GE full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Possible name recognition on a resume, without the caché it once had

    Cons

    It is a company either in transition or on its way to be broken down and sold. Our whole AR department was sold (transfered) to a bottom- feeder BPM (outsourcing) company called Genpact or Headstrong. Through this employee transfer, GE got rid of hardworking employees who for over 40 years have collected and added to its bottomline. They did this in order to cut costs. Genpact, the bottom- feeder that it is, it is... getting rid of us after only one year as they are not used to paying high salaries. They mainly function in 2nd and 3rd world countries and pay dismal salaries, with negligible benefits. They're not used to paying decent North American salaries. We are in constant contact with Genpact employees in India, as the company is Indian-owned and let's just say common- sense is not their forté. Their way of thinking is very one-track and don't see around the problem. Is that who you want to work for?

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. Without us you are nothing. The bottom line isn't everything.
