    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at GE full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots to learn. good place to start a career as every other place you would work would have less work load. GE support and management team is professional and supportive. GE team has educated people. You would develop amazing leadership skills surviving in such harsh environment.

    Cons

    Low ball salary offers. If you don't learn how to treat the customer railways quick they will crush you No work life balance will be working 50-60hr a week on average. expect late night calls while you are in bed after a 16 hour work day If technical side of railways is your passion you will be ok here.

    Advice to Management

    increase the salary. you hire masters in engineering graduates and pay them less than a fresh high school graduate first day apprentice working with the customer railways.

    I worked at GE

    Pros

    The company will allow you to take on many responsibilities and learn whatever you want. The environment was great, very fun and friendly coworkers

    Cons

    The workload for most people at the company was too much. Work life balance was very poor and many people were uncertain about their future at the company

    Advice to Management

    Management should try to structure the company in a more streamline way instead of asking employees to work themselves to the bone.
