Field Service Representative (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 September 2017
You don't get to be one of the worlds biggest companies without doing something right.
Although I only worked there for inside of a year, the opportunities afforded me were great. There was a fair bit of travel involved, which could either be the hardest part of the job, or one of the perks of it, depends entirely on what you want from your career.
I believe they know the value of hiring and retaining employees, and therefore spend a fair amount of resources in training and upgrading knowledge, something that is hard to put a dollar figure on, but it does add to the benefits of working for GE.
Great training resources as well knowledgable people to call upon when need be.
There can be some down time which leads to crew reductions in certain areas.
Senior Mechanical Designer (Current Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 18 May 2017
GE is undergoing staff reductions based on Corporate Share prices and global growth reductions, There's a lack of managerial leadership at all levels and unfortunately some bad decisions are affecting the whole workforce. Moral is poor and the future doesn't look good...
Project Designer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 August 2016
I was doing water filtration system design at GE water. I did design and calculations most of the day. The best part of the job would be the travel with projects to different cities. The hardest part would be the field trips where I had to do physical work.

Pilot Plant Operator/ Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 13 November 2015
My daily routine mostly revolved around ensuring continued operation of small scale testing pilots, maximizing run time for both quality testing and validation of new water treatment process and technologies. The company promotes an innovative, creative atmosphere, with a great sense of citizenship to the community with many volunteering opportunities.
Good Place to work with really friendly co-workers
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 20 October 2015
A typical day at work would be processing invoices for payment, sending shipments to the states, and sending customers sales quotes for products. In this position i learnt that time management is very important and found that prioritizing tasks is helpful when things get busy. The hardest part of the job was the really long days with nothing to do.
Project Implementation Specialist (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 13 October 2015
I was exposed to so many great opportunities at GE. They organized food drives where you could play with cans to create a dinosaur, play volleyball everyday during lunch, go on trails, plant trees and generally get a chance to relax with colleagues after work. Everyone is very creative, independent and open minded. My team was a collaborative and cooperative unit led by a very driven manager.
My review is specific to GE Power & Water. The business segment I worked in was in Ultrafiltration (UF) technology for water and wastewater treatment, the company was originally Zenon Environmental and acquired by GE Water division in 2006. The facility is great, and I had the opportunity to make good friends. I was promoted one time over the 8 years I worked there.
The management works hard to put on every appearance of a modern organization, unfortunately the underlying culture makes all this just a show. I cannot say nor do I have enough information as to whether GE culture as a whole was representative of this business unit (thus the high score I gave for Management, giving them the benefit of the doubt). I have enjoyed my years in this company, I will miss the great chef we had, the sports facilities and great people.
Receiver/Warehouse (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 November 2014
I had great co-workers and we did our best each day, unfortunately management kept on making cuts to staff and expecting those who remained to be able to handle the work loads with no delays, all the staff on the floor did there best make the company successful however it was a very stressful place to work at.
Product Data Management project (Former Employee) – Greenville, SC – 15 July 2013
I started my career in GE as a contractor through Tata Consultancy services. In GE I had the opportunity to work in their GE energy systems which made Gas Turbines. I was trained in Six Sigma philosophy.
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
