"GE is one of the best places I've worked. If you are technical, you will be challenged every day. Mobility, pay structure, and benefits are a bit antiquated."

"GE has surprised me in so many ways. Until now I've been on an incredible ride moving from a comms dept to an innovation dept and I never stop learning - there's always something pushing the bar - I love it."

"I think this is a great company, but my office seemed to be a little bit of an exception. While I was satisfied with my position and responsibilities, most of my coworkers were not. There were a lot of unhappy people there and I would prefer to work in a more cheerful environment."

"I am only with this company because I was laid off from pharmaceuticals. It is a good company but the salary and raises are very low. Their technology is lacking."

"I've worked at GE Oil & Gas for 2+ years. They treat their employees with very little respect. They set impossible deadlines, then ream them when those impossible deadlines are not met. Unless you are in management, you will be treated like a number and not part of a family."

"Old tools and equipment, old managers stuck in their ways, long hours, limitless fire-fighting, no real commitment to actually resolving long-term issues. Previous companies have been bought and sold this company, off-shored production lines, and drained profits for years. There's not much left worth fighting for."
