its a job
Operator (Former Employee) –  Decatur, ALApril 4, 2017
Its a job. i am currently looking for something else because they want you to do more work than they want to pay you for. i also find that a lot of their products break down easily because of bad handling within the factories causing for there to be high volume of calls in the call center.

Inventory Specialist (Former Employee) –  Erie, PAApril 4, 2017
I enjoyed working at GE. It had a real nice environment and polite employees.
I learned a lot about keeping a proper inventory,and a clean work area.
Most all of management that I had to deal with were very respectful and understanding.
The hardest part of the job was making sure you kept track of everything that was available.
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to meet new peaple and being able to work with them.
Pros
Able to enjoy going to work everyday.
Cons
The health care had a lot to be desired.

Good pay & benefits but poor management and continual risk of lay-off
Senior Engineer (Current Employee) –  Greenville, SCApril 4, 2017
General Electric Power (GE Power) has good pay and benefits and is embracing flexible work hours/arrangements but is currently experiencing many issues as an employer.

The management and leadership is currently poor at best. When I start with GE Power Systems nearly two decades ago they had the best management / leadership in the industry, but that is now a thing of the past.

The current atmosphere is one of uncertainty. The Alstom acquisition seems to be having a large negative impact and is resulting in a continual cycle of lay-offs.
