Work life balance is amazing at GE. The company cares for its employees, and this is seen on approaching the management for any kind of assistance. There are a lot of learning and career opportunities available inside the company, and if you're willing to put in the work you could rise to the top within GE based purely on the merit of your work.
The flip side, is that the rewards and benefits favour the employees who stick around for the long term. The hours can be long and the work tiring. You will run into corporate bureaucracy many times due to the large, and multinational nature of the organisation.
Excellent opportunities, and employee treatment at one of the largest companies in the world.
You are working for one of the big boys, and you'll get noticed with GE on your CV. There's a great training programme and loads of chances to progress your career, with a market leader in the electronics sector. The company offers opportunities worldwide and unbeatable pay and benefits packages for bright grads and keen grafters. It's so well-established, that this is probably one of the few outfits where you can really say you could find a job for life.
GE is MASSIVE and like all big companies, it can be a bit faceless. You've got to fit in with the corporate way, or you'll make no progress and just get chewed up in the works. If you're looking to shine as an individual, GE's not for you. It's teamwork all the way and sometimes that can be a bit suffocating.
