Gas Turbine Mechanic Level 1 (Former Employee) – 100% Travel – 5 January 2018
Work is done in power plant/refinery settings. 100% travel to whatever region of the US you are assigned to. I was assigned to the Gulf Coast region working in Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. The work was never too strenuous but the elements given the time of year are what can really get to you if you're not dressed properly. Job was basically to be a glorified parts changer on million dollar equipment. Pay was great, per diem was $100 per day for me, and the benefits package was pretty good. I'd still be with the company if I didn't miss family too much to be on the road for a month at a time.

Field Service Technician- Distributed Power (Current Employee) – Everywhere – 3 August 2017
I enjoyed the work, but it took too much of a toll on family life. I spent 300 days/yr working 84 hrs/week. No personal life, no family life, but the ability to make plenty of money and travel. Great for single life, terrible for family life.

Very demanding and fast pace environment but the people are very friendly and are always willing to help each other be successful. They have a global footprint in the energy market so if you want to work for an international company then they would be a good one to explore.
Purchasing Agent (Former Employee) – Kuala Lumpur / Malaysia – 10 April 2017
Since the HQ announced that we are going to merge, most of us are decided to look for a job as we knew that we are using our luck to continue work in GE (Granite). This is because they will reduce the headcount if they found the job duplicated. Before announcement, the company's culture was good and every body is friendly. However the job always overload. you need to make sure A to Z process is smoothly complete.
You learn every thing or refresh every from the procurement process and new commodities
Management don't care what is your situation, just do it and give them what they want.

Turbine Mechanic (Former Employee) – Houston,Tx – 16 August 2016
A typical day at work consisted of disassembly and assembly of all project turbine engines if needed.
Working on gas turbines was a great educational experience due to all the hands on work I was able to learn a great deal of things from maintaining mixers, to changing oil, following correct manual directions and labeling various gas turbine parts.
I honestly believe management should have been better on checking the status of their employees.
Working with co-workers was a fun experience It was a chance to learn turbines easier.
The hardest part of the job was finding a secure position
The most enjoyable part of the job was learning from the other experienced techs
