CSL (Customer Service Leader) (Current Employee) – Milton, FL – March 22, 2017
During my five years at GE I went from Field Engineer to Customer Service Leader. As a customer service leader I spent my days working with GE energy customers and providing the service fulfilment needed to maintain their mills and power plants.
Excellent company with long history of excellence.
Long work hours as required to fulfill customer needs.
I was the one and only Project Manager for overhaul and repair. I was the liaison between GE and all of their customers requiring repairs on their components of the BOP stack. I kept track of all repairs and reported daily to various major drilling contractors.
Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee) – Schertz, TX – March 16, 2017
Daily schedules were set. However, the tools and people needed did not match their expectations. Lay offs were given at a drop of a hat. Doesn't matter how good or bad of an employee. Your a number there and if your number is pulled..then out you go.
Test Engineer (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA 15238 – March 13, 2017
Worked with great people, but management drove the place into the ground with poor decision after poor decision. Quality was paid lip service and nothing more, schedules were more important than doing the job right. If there was a problem, management would invariably up the overtime instead of actually fixing the problems. Sure it was nice to make 50% more than my base salary, but that isn't sustainable. It is no wonder the plant failed and closed.
Support Manager (Current Employee) – Oklahoma – March 11, 2017
GE Oil & Gas is always in turmoil with constant management and structural changes from very intelligent, highly educated but seriously lacking of experience/knowledge within there responsible fields. In-Experienced leadership consistently attempts to re-invent the wheel which causes chaos with internal flow disruptions. GE high level management appears to have positive directions but does not flow down to the lower level, this only creates increase workloads at lower levels. Upper management continually ask for feed back but never seems to trickle downward?
unlimited time off
time off only puts additional stress upon return from any absence
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Odessa, TX – March 9, 2017
Solid company. I studied GE while in school and I thought it was a great opportunity right out of college. The benefits were good and I thought the retirement options were really solid. I was hired during a boom and I was given a 10% bonus for the cost of living expenses. I of course lost it when the price of oil dropped. The job did unofficially ask you to work more than 40 hours a week but it didn't kill me. However upper management seemed to spend 60 hours a week on the job. I couldn't see myself working that much and being a great husband. I left because I thought that if I was going to end up working that much then I want to do it on my own terms. I left to start my own business. In the oil field I always heard how much greener the grass was on the other side but I'd argue that GE Oil and Gas is a great place to work.
Pay, 401k, Management
Oil jobs can be volatile, GE is newer to Oil and Gas
Contractor/Documentation Specialist (Former Employee) – Avon, MA – February 15, 2017
Working for GE was really great in that I had a competent, smart manager and a supervisor who was the most objective and knowledgeable supervisor I've ever had. GE is in the middle of getting established in Boston, so there's a bit of juggling going on in terms of facilities and people, but I enjoyed working there.
