    I have been working at GE (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    GE was wonderful company when I joined and heaps of learning, leadership was awesome and working environment was absolutely marvelous.

    Cons

    In the last 1 and 1/2 year GE has become a terrible place to work, so much close approach for employee, massive cost cut organization wide, firing people on regular basis, so bureaucratic approach, less opportunities and no growth values.

    Since GE has sold its finance business, they have started become pain, I did not want to say but really a third class company from a first class company.

    I was not expecting that GE will fall like this. Seriously not worth to even consider working for GE.

    Advice to Management

    Please do something good for your employee and make yourself proud. Don't play with people and give pain by so much cost cuts and demotion of people. If you are thinking you are leading a company in leadership industry then prove it. GE leader is bottom of the well and so disappointing to see how GE is progressing. I doubt with this mindset and approach you will have good working people staying with you.

    A small mistake can lead to big disaster and I am feeling GE going towards it. Please do something good for your people and respect them.
