Stuffy culture. Not a fully robust risk infrastructure.
Pros: Work life balance
Cons: Culture, job stability, office perks
GE Capital has been consistently playing catch-up after their designation as a SIFI by bringing in external talent to bring the risk infrastructure up to par. Given the amount of investment required to become Fed compliant, combined with their relatively high cost of funds, the operating model has proven to not be fully efficient, and the sale of most business platforms reflects this.
Management can vary by business. GE utilizes internal tracks significantly to source upper level management. They often rotate executives through different businesses every 2-3 years. This appears to be relatively inefficient as the executives often do not have an incredibly robust industry knowledge and need to be educated on the business they are expected to manage.
That being said, GE's leadership programs are a great place to start your career. Access to senior leadership, exposure to different industries/business models, and global reach provide great learning opportunities for young professionals.
Solid and affordable healthcare coverage, and excellent relocation packages.
