GE, before it was sold, before I was laid off, the people are incredible. They have a furnace that must remain lit to keep it healthy. When the power fails, if you were there, the people come alive -- and the furnace survives time and again. The people there are incredible, and I miss them. We have pushed and pulled that furnace to it's limits, with an incredible furnace engineer (name not given but deserves a ton of credit). Plant is some 80 years old, and it runs!!!! Production outputs when I left were 98% efficiency -- due to the dedication of the people. I would enjoy, and relish that again. The great thing about Logan, Ohio, is the people are on the same page -- let's get it done, let's get it done right, what is needed? It is to the point that I would suggest that companies move their plants there. Incredible workforce, incredible dedication, incredible character.
I'm in a one year contract that is about to end shortly and thereby compensation and ability to move up is restricted due to the contract based kind of employment. I love working for GE but they are currently on a hiring freeze and budget limitations and thereby cannot keep me and 2 of my other contract co-workers.
The CEO is not the plant manager. The facility lacks any desire to motivate you to greatness. They constantly find flaws with no concrete plan to help you improve. They also don't use facts when forming opinions, a big negative. If you aren't trained, then it's your fault. If you try to get innovative, you get squashed for not maintaining concensus. If HR and the plant manager were changed out, it would be a great place to work. Hourly folks are solid, but can pit managers against each.
