Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) – Milton, ON – 30 October 2012
I started working for GE through an aquisition. My co-workers are the best, we are a small unit that have worked together well, we consider our selves to be the perfect fit. The culture is quite different from most and there is learning, learning and more learning. There are lots of webx and meeting to circulate information. The hardest part of the job is month end when you just have to have everything done right on time with no room for error, but we always manage to get it done right.
the ge name come with a lot of benefits
when working for a large organization you tend to get lost in the numbers
Testing Specialist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 November 2017
This was a project that kept firing PM's for being honest about the position and reality of meeting deadlines and budgets about the project. Leadership was in Florida, team in Calgary and extremely disconnected from the actual challenges the development team was facing developing their software. Cutting corners on "expenses" by hiring teams overseas also lead to severe inefficiencies. Near the end of the project, works 7 days a week, over 11 hours a day with some 18-20 hour days on deliverables to their customers (pending litigation if not delivered) that had a deadline within a week but were in reality 8 weeks away from being DEVELOPED, not to mention tested and ready for launch. Leadership seemed to thing that keeping staff almost 24/7 would suddenly improve the odds of delivering on time.
