main test (Current Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 5 June 2017
great place to work with excellent wages and benefits, however layoffs are a common occurrence so therefore job security is quite bad. the job is difficult but interesting and challenging. great group of co-workers.
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.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 16 May 2017
Working for such a large corporation certainly has its benefits but also some considerable red tape and processes that absolutely must be followed with little regard to the actual business thus having a negative impact not only on employee morale but also on getting the job done!
Technical Inside Sales (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 7 May 2017
Excellent facility to work in. The facility includes a full-service gymnasium, a cafeteria that offered many food options, and plenty of free parking. Although I was able to get an extension to my contract, full-time permanent employment is difficult to come by.
Office/Manufacturing (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 7 May 2017
Terrible Management, Harassment does not mean anything and the bottom line I worked my butt off everyday for 11 yrs to turn around and be laid off. What bothers me to the most is that I can look around at any given time and see the same people do nothing and all that happens the your boss come over to you and give you sh#t for doing more. What I would love to see management be accounted for.

Field Technician (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 3 January 2017
Lack of communication to staff, Need to know basis and you don't need to know attitude. The job is fairly easy compared to most oilfield work. If you are single and like money apply. If you want a career keep searching.
Good money for most employees, easy, you can not get fired.
Negitive atmosphere, favoritism, Your days off are a inconvenience to their non sense schedule.
Financial Planning and Services Analyst (Current Employee) – Sorel-Tracy, QC – 4 October 2016
In the year and a half I've been at GE I have been given the opportunity to work for three different businesses (GE Capital, GE Power, and GE Renewable Energy) in different roles across Ontario and Quebec.
In each of these positions I have worked with new teams under different managers and have had a number of chances to enhance my problem-solving and leadership skills.
As a recent graduate, I am fortunate to have received a breadth of experience and to have been granted significant responsibilities within a short period of time. In addition, the company has invested heavily in me through courses both online and in-person and has taken a strong interest in helping develop my professional career.
Trailer tech/welder (Former Employee) – London, ON – 1 September 2016
Good place to work and stable enviroment. Management listens to employees and supplys you with required equipment to do you job well. As long as you got your work done nobody would bother you and you could basically setup your days as you wish. You were basically your own boss.
