Fairly paced workplace with great interactions between all levels of business. Everyone is friendly and will attempt to help or direct you to another individual when you have questions or concerns. Human Resources does a great job at keeping current with employees.
The culture within GE is fantastic; for different major events the departments will have a function. For example, during the world cup a department may go out to lunch together one day.
very productive, on time delivery and quality products
Welder (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 30, 2015
typical day was to be assigned our work for the day and get supplies as needed, my co-workers were awsome to work with, alway teir to help you out. management was not always easy to work with unless you sucked up to their needs without getting written up. the hardest part of the job was keeping pace with deadlines and ontime delivery to customer.
great pay, co-workers and engineers were awsome, great benefits
managment were to pushy and hard to get along with
Alot of stress warehouse is being outsourced, to Dart
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – October 5, 2016
Warehouse can be a good place to work. Alot of overtime not enough people. Equipment not the best. There is a Christian fellowship there. Some management dosent have a working knowledge of how a warehouse works. Tri to show my faith often.
Great learning environment. Lots to learn with People that don't want to share in fear of losing there job. you will get a chance to learn Teststand,Agilent and Tyradyne bed of nail test platforms. Management varies but most of the lower supervisors are stuck where they are. So in tun they make sure you stay stuck where you are. they have promotion Criteria spelled out in black and white, but if you not related to someone Getting promotions can be tough.
Nepotism. Management in lower supervisor positions
GE promotes too much on leadership. So everyone there is looking for leading someone, instead of focusing on leading him/herself first. We constantly in a project review, we had 10 reviewers in a room reviewing a project done by one employee who leads an intern. The intern was the only one who did the job. GE had very good leadership training program which helped me to significantly improved my presentation skills. GE had good leaders but the problem was the depth of the product domain knowledge they had since they constantly rotated among GE businesses. Very low year over year salary increase, only way to get significant increase is to change jobs.

Principal Engineer (Former Employee) – Duarte, CA – September 1, 2016
A good and fun company to work. The products may be switched from hydraulic products to electric-mechanical products. The new products failed in customer's qualification test. Company lost the edge to compete with market.
I started working here right out of college and couldn't be more grateful to have been giving the opportunity. Over the course of my employment with GE I have picked up many skills that no business school in the country could have taught me. It is an incredible place for anyone to start a career.
