IT Application Developer (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON30 October 2014
GE is nice place to work, people in GE always try to helps new employee or interns. I joined GE as an intern. I got all important and useful information about company different policies at induction program which company only organized for interns or new employees, when they join company.
All co-workers are so good and very supportive and cooperative.
Most important part is we can work independently. The managers and co-workers appreciate new initiative or simplification. They do support new ideas and new technology.

We also participate in fund raising events for charity by buying raffles tickets, balloons or by participating in some games.
We do enjoy by participating in some games activities organized by company and by having ice cream every Friday in summer season :)
Pros
Work independently and time off when needed
Cons

Well Managed Company
Reliability Engineer (Former Employee) –  Erie, PA2 September 2014
One of the best Managed companies I have worked for Deadlines were fixed. Corporate goals where well understood by employees. Very customer focused organization. Had a matrix organisation which made it difficult at times to convince other groups of the need to do specific things. Often Times (Too Many) upper level management was involved in the day to day activities.

Fun and Productive work Environment
Assembly Worker (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON7 April 2014
- Day started with a morning meeting to assign tasks for the day
- I learned how to read blueprints, properly wire and build control panels, operate a crane and attach parts of the Wind Hubs
- Management was very helpful and friendly, they made daily rounds so if you ever had any questions they were available
- Most Co-workers were friendly and helpful, experienced workers were there to give advice or help if I was having trouble
- The hardest part of the job was training employees that had more experience then me (when lay offs were happening we had to train employees from different areas) when they didn't want to learn
- The most enjoyable part was challenging myself to see how many Wind Hubs I could finish in a day, also working with friendly, easy going people
Pros
Overtime
Cons
Commuting from Oshawa to Peterborough

great comrades, A company only concerned about the bottom line
Operator / Field Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Fort Mackay, AB5 March 2014
typically a good crew to work with, as far as fellow employees, but as for management and and the company as a greater entity its all about bottom line everyone and everything is expendable based on margins of gross profit. One of the biggest companies in the world because they make harsh decisions without measuring the effect on the work force only measuring the effect on the finances.
Pros
paid travel, free benefits, looks good on a resume
Cons
you are at risk if you depend on this for financial stability

Waiting for Approval of set up
