    I have been working at GE Oil & Gas full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong business growth (realised & potential) means there are good prospects for career development.
    Huge portfolio offers potential to meet wide range of customer problems & industry challenges.
    Opportunities to develop career in the wider GE.

    Cons

    Fast growth & numerous recent acquisitions have not yet shaken out leading to uncertainty across the business about ultimate direction & goals.
    Change-out of senior leadership team is resulting in lack of industry expertise at the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open about future direction & plans for organisation ... Use the industry knowledge in the heads of your people ... Listen then act not the other way around

    Excellent career opportunities in a solid company hindered by bureucracy and sloppy acquisition assimilation.

    I have been working at GE Oil & Gas full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent career, training, and networking possibilities. GE is a huge and powerful company and as such provides their staff with plenty of resources to complete their jobs. As an employee, you can be confident that your company will still be around tomorrow. Capital expenditures are not a limitation to technology or efficiency advancements.

    Cons

    Being a huge company, it is weighed down by internal barriers to completing day to day tasks. IT support and purchasing apparently benefit from economies of scale but it is very frustrating when it takes days for someone to address a computer problem and days to purchase something that I could drive to the store and have in fifteen minutes. Also, being a company founded on acquisitions, there are many growing pains as companies are combined, assimilated, reorganized, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the simplification initiatives. This should be your primary goal. Mundane processes absolutely kill productivity and cripple projects. Sometimes it feels like working against the company to complete mundane tasks. Focus on making the daily things like IT and purchasing easier so we can focus on executing projects and improving our products and execution.
