Company is going through a lot of change
GGO Canada (Former Employee) – Mississauga Ontario – 13 June 2017
GE is not the same company that it was in the Jack Welsh era. I leave it to you to determine whether this is good or bad. There is a significant amount of change ongoing at GE and this is leading to some difficult cultural issues between the legacy mindset and those promoting change and new directions. There is no question that GE has exceptional technology, however recent emphasis towards digital along with a challenging marketplace has resulted in significant cost cuts in areas such as research and development. The long term impact of this on GE's competitiveness is yet to be felt. I cannot say whether I would recommend this company or not, as it is so diverse and has so many different types of opportunities that the ultimate determination will be based on the position and organisational vertical you are in. All I can say is that I spent several wasted years within the GGO organisation, which I suspect (hope) will be disbanded under the new leadership.
Flexible work environment. Competitive compensation.
Lack of direction and poor culture.
