    Good company to work for, spoiled by a lack of customer focus

    General Manager (Former Employee) Melbourne

    ProsGreat company, with good opportunities for development.

    ConsWay too internally focussed business, with too high a percentage of successful managers being incompetent at running a business, but great at managing up (zero decision making ability, as that might get them in trouble - better to make no decision than to take a risk).

    Advice to Senior Managementstick to performance targets - if the managers don't perform, get rid of them, not promote them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros- If you enjoy making a difference, this is the company to work for.
    - Great learning culture. You should never stop learning because when you do, it's probably time for you to start looking for another role. That's what makes people in this company so great to work with.
    - Huge conglomerate, can't find any other company that has business units large enough to be a stand-alone company and switching from one to another is not frowned upon.
    - Strong corporate culture, GE is the same everywhere you go, heck they have their own fonts, branding etc.

    Cons- Like any large company, you'd find pockets of people who don't embody the GE values, can be frustrating to work with them
    - Can be slow and bureaucratic at times
    - Don't expect all warm and fuzz, people here mean business
