Transition Manager (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – February 21, 2012
This is a place where you can disappear if you so choose. Collect your paycheck and go home. It wasn't for me; I had higher aspirations than this. Management is focused on the latest "flavor of the day" program/process. At the time I was there, it was Six Sigma. This has some benefits, but it didn't get the day-to-day work done.
leave on time at 5pm every day, not much work stress here
Fast paced, long hours but great hardworking team.
Membrane Fabricator Lead - 2nd Shift Lead (Former Employee) – Watertown, MA and later Westborough, Ma – April 19, 2013
Though fast paced, often difficult, the feeling of accomplishment working with a great crew made it fun and rewarding. Fortunate enough to have a very talented, hard working crew that could laugh and work through often tough situations.
Often the hardest part of the job involved dealing with not having supplies needed to complete jobs. As well, working an off shift, some of my extremely hard working, talented crew and accomplishments often were relatively invisible.

Field Service Technician (Former Employee) – Trevose, PA – November 24, 2015
Traveling the east coast managing the water treatment programs at different customer sites. I learned a lot about inhibiting corrosion and bacteria control. The hardest part of the job is satisfying the customer. But the challenge was enjoyable. It kept me alert and focus. I believed in the product that GE was selling, because the performance reduced energy cost.
I really don't have anything bad to say about GE. It is a company with values that resonate through the walls. The compensation is competitive, the management is generally experienced, and it is an authentic meritocracy of a company. GE does have a hard working culture, so be prepared. It is also a company that heavily believes in training its employees to be the best,
Diverse group of talented and motivated people to work with
Unit Managing Director (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – February 13, 2016
GE showed a lot of thought and preparation for the combined employee population in its merger with Alstom, ensuring that everyone on both sides were treated fairly, and the combined company is truly a major benefit to its shareholders and customers.
I learned a lot from coworkers and the job were challenging! We had competitions! I learned how to tack. Management wasn't up to par. The hardest part of the job were, when you didn't have anything to do, it got boring! So I had to find something to do like clean up my area and make it look nice! The most enjoyable part of the job is getting the job done well first( I love to put out the products) and when I go on break and socialize with coworkers. We were a team a family. And when everyone got laid off, we cried. It really hurt to see someone loose their jobs after all those years. But life goes on to maybe better things. Like working at the post office until I retire!
We did get a 20 minute free lunch break and company lunches for safety!
We had a short break before lunch. And First aid on site!
Receptionist (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – February 5, 2016
This is a scary environment. They will make you feel secure, while the higher ups are planning for your demise so that they can increase their profits in their pockets and lay off people who will lose everything they have worked so hard for.
