Challenging but usually rewarding work environment
Senior Product Manager (Current Employee), Houston, TXAugust 8, 2014
Pros: flexible working hours
Cons: overly diversified, too many meetings
A typical day at work included many meetings and interactions with colleagues. I learned a lot about the oil & gas industry and most recently learned about being a business leader. Some managers have been good mentors but for the most part they have allowed me the freedom to be autonomous, which I like. The hardest part of the job is trying to work – more... in a matrix environment where goals and objectives are not necessarily aligned. I really enjoyed working internationally and meeting customers all over the world. – less

data book specialist (Current Employee), broussard, laMarch 21, 2014
Pros: hour lunches, flexible schedules
I typically go in log onto computer and begin tracking my jobs. I first track the ones needed for the end of quarter every three months. I also check to see if new ones have arrived. Any updates on current job I'm working on i update it, then update a tracker that team uses. I also talk with inspectors or surveyors with any errors caught by our team – more... and go forward with making necessary changes. – less

Productive work place, team work is outstanding.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Teague TXJanuary 12, 2014
Pros: happy place, gained new experience
Cons: pay and location
When I started at GE I had little admin experience. I started from the bottom with very little knowledge and gained more experience than most admins at the company. I learned Oracle, Syteline, accounts payable and recievable in a short period of time. The management is outstanding and constantly provides an open door policy that has always been easy – more... to trust. My co-workers are amazing people to be around, always exhibiting the greatest respect for team work. The most enjoyable part of my job would have to be the fact that we were all like a family, if any of us had problems, we helped each other. – less

Management plays favorites and doesn't make it a good work place
Operator (Current Employee), Alvarado,TXJanuary 7, 2014
Management doesn't help you. They only take care of themselves. Not everyone has to come to shop. They try and use their power to belittle you.

Non-competitive pay
Inspector (Former Employee), 12221 north houston rosslyn houston, tx 77086November 19, 2013
Pros: almost impossible to get fired no matter how lazy you are...
Cons: 40-50 hours a week, pay not competitive, no opportunity to advance without a degree
I worked here for several years and worked my way up from painter, to assembly mechanic, to inspector. The pay was much better than what I was used to initially. We worked 60-80 hours a week, it was great for me at the time. As time went on and I grew I found that it was very difficult to get a pay increase, based on knowledge and certifications. Typically – more... additional certifications translates into pay compensation, but not at GE. The pay rate you start at is where you will stay, and if you don't have a degree then it is unlikely you will get promoted. The operations leader role is a position they do not take seriously because they put people in the role that have no clue what's going on. Another issue is that the operations leaders think that the best way to save money is cutting overtime so now everyone works 40 hours. It put several employees in a tough financial situation because their salaries were reduced by 40-50% with no hourly rate change to compensate for lost time. – less

Productive and Fun
Material Planner (Current Employee), Houston, TXOctober 10, 2013
A typical day at work, would begin by answering many e-mails. Returning calls to vendors. Checking the status of material. Checking to see where parts are located. sending out drawing for quotes.
What I learned is, taking a couple of extra classes, listing to people and asking as many questions as I can would help you learn how to operate better.
A – more... big part of my job is time management. Having material and items on a time frame is great. Management as far as keeping up with meeting status of material. seting up meeting to give feed back.
Co-worker, are my team players.Everyone has a job to do and everyone has to work together to complete a task.
the hardest part of my job is, when I send a part out for testing and it fails or the material needs to be reworked. It makes things take long, because of the rework.
Enjoyable part is when I have completed a task. My material was on time. The vendors deliever on time. Test passes and custumers buy product.Everyone is happy. – less

There is a lot of discrimination towards nationalities that do not concur with the long time clock eaters, employees.
Combo welder (Former Employee), Houston TXJuly 15, 2013
Horrible company to work for. Do not let the benefits sway you from joining this individuality environment. The pay is lower than any sister company in this field. I along with many other employees was discriminated against on a DAILY basis. When you finally have enough of it and decide to tell someone, you get terminated! this is not a work environment – more... that anyone with integrity should consider. – less
