Poor Management
Master Scheduler (Former Employee) –  Erie, PA13 August 2017
My position was terminated (lack of work) by people who I have never met and knew nothing about the job functions I performed. This happened after I inherited senior level responsibilities on top of my current responsibilities with no pay increase.

Boa empresa para trabalho, aprendizado e crescimento
Comprador Sênior (Former Employee) –  Contagem, MG8 August 2017
Trabalho de aproximadamente 12 horas diários
A questão cultural da empresa é muito particular, devido a particularidades do negocio.
A convivenciia entre as pessosa é super sadia, mesclando momentos de trabalho arduo, com momentos de descontração.
O trabalho na GETF apresenta diversas mudançãs, devido ao negocio atender produtos novos e produtos a serem reformados.

Be prepared to deliver
Digital Technology Leadership Program Intern (Former Employee) –  Wayne, MI4 August 2017
GE is currently going through cost-out and trying to optimize each business unit team. It really focuses you to think about how you deliver to your team and GE's goals. If you have a niche, deliver consistently, and work well with others, GE is a great fit. They will challenge you and make you a better employee.
Pros
Fun and Fast-Paced Atmosphere
Cons
Union workers are first to get cut.

Productive and challenging place to work
Technical Advisor/Material Technical Advisor (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TN2 August 2017
Working for GE Transportation has been rewarding and challenging. Locomotives are highly integrated systems and require a higher level of understanding to evaluate and repair. The applications used to work in this field are highly specialized but can assist personnel in adapting to other fields in industrial management.
Pros
Rewarding
Cons
None

Overview
Value Stream Leader (Former Employee) –  Erie, PA1 August 2017
The business is cyclical as are most but GE doesnt take advantage of the downturn to work projects, 5S, or install new tooling or machines. Immediatly they begin making reductions in force that devistates moral anx increases the burden on remaining EEs such that they no longer have to time to make improvements for when the work returns.

A cultura do certo, do compliance é bem estabelecida dentro da companhia, a valorização do empregado e preocupação com feedback´s são um dos pontos a serem levados em consideração. Vale a pena dedicar-se a essa organização chamada GE.

Good Workplace, No Structure
Embedded Software Development Engineer (Former Employee) –  Erie, PA21 July 2017
Good co-workers, interesting work, but no real structure-- very hands-off management approach, to the point of lacking direction. Most difficult part of the job is keeping up with new procedures-- internal communication is lacking.
Pros
Free coffee, free workout center membership
Cons
Frequent emergency software changes

Challenging
Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) –  Erie, PA16 July 2017
Unlimited resources but insane amount of red tape. I work with incredibly smart and motivated people. They push you to perform as well as support you to succeed. Plant level management is tuned in and generally pretty good. Upper management is a mess. Mostly finance and sales people trying to run a manufacturing company. Direction is unclear - treading water right now.
Pros
people, resources, challenging work
Cons
upper management, terrible healthcare plan, permissive vacation policy

Stereotypical large corporation. You're a number
Lead Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  Erie, PA14 July 2017
Stereotypical large corporation. You're a number. Typical propaganda will state that GE is a "People" company. It couldn't get any more impersonal that this. If you really want to make it here, watch the brown-nosers or make friends with higher ups.

Complicated but Intelligent
Lead System Validation Engineer (Current Employee) –  Melbourne, FL7 July 2017
The work was challenging and interesting. Training was weak and nonexistent. Business systems are complicated and inconsistent between divisions and locations. Communication from management was good and upfront. The company is definitely on a trend to improve processes and technology focus. The hardest part of the job was learning the business process, tools and methodology. The enjoyable part of the job was the freedom to do my tasks and the support with advanced technology.
Pros
Continuous exploration of new technologies.
Cons
Lack of planning, which leads to expedited engineering and sub par products.
