"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."
"GE has an outstanding working culture, I learned a lot working for them for one year as a contractor."
"I worked by GE recently and the experience wasn't what I was expecting for. In my country they need to focus in what is really important and review their strategies."
"I've worked for GE since 2010. It's huge company that employs around 300 000 people and has over hundreds locations around the world."
"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."
"Ok place to work. Though they concentrated on hiring massive numbers of unproven H1B's."
"Have worked in GE global research center for a year duration."
"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."
"Cool place to work. Learned a lot!!"
"GE is a great place to start a career, but is difficult to move up. Pay is great, but it is easy to get lost in the crowd. Company seems so big that it gets in its on way."
