Pros: pay ok, share program, money towards gym membership
Cons: workload, culture, disrespect for life outside work
Typical day at work is 80% on making financial targets versus 20% on core competency (IT or insert any other role). Leadership extremely risk averse, running scared on cost, timescales & quality. This is not the place for creativity or innovation unless lucky enough to work in GRC.
Bullying & hostile behavior rewarded with awards and/or promotion. – more... Experienced so much trauma as part of day job, domestic stress no longer registers.
Expect to receive 200+ hostile emails per day about cost, timescales or quality, your immediate manager to be ok but constrained as you are.
Don't expect a huge amount of career progression unless joining GE on graduate program. You may get thrown a bone (training) if you play nice.
Pay is ok for local area. Good point is GE big company & in theory possible to move internally. – less
