Pros: dynamic work experience with infinite possibilities for improvment
Cons: big company that was slightly unorganized
GE was a fantastic opportunity for me to advance my design experience and learn a ton about manufacturing engineering. Previously, I had never gained experience regarding production and safety, so, with the help of a great experienced mentor, I learned as much as I could about manufacturing and all of the steps required to make a quality product. My coworkers were nothing but helpful and, while many of them were young, they all had answers for my questions or knew who did. Some of the work I was doing involved programming a stepper motor to lift a mechanical fixture which was a little outside of my comfort zone, but I really enjoyed the challenge and completed the job by the end of my term. It was very rewarding and enjoyable to finish that job and have something tangible to be proud of at the end of my term there.
