    Pros

    Rewards for hard work/high performance. Well known and respected brand, motivated people

    Cons

    Very poor customer focus (internally obsessed). authoritarian culture (quite militaristic), HR processes are supposed to be quantitative and independent, but easily subverted by executives for their own means

    Pros

    Great commission opportunities. Employee development orientated company. Big company offering decent job security.

    Cons

    Constant training and policy updates. High pressure. Very competitive. Targets, targets, targets......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to focus on a work life balance. At times they push too hard and it results in resignations.

    Former Employee - General Manager in Melbourne

    I worked at GE full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company, with good opportunities for development.

    Cons

    Way 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 ManagementAdvice

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