Long working days but with a lot of succeess stories.
Accounts Manager (Former Employee) – Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic – October 30, 2013
I typically worked 10-12 hours/day. During my career with GE I applied the knowledge and experience acquired during my previous employments. Unfortunately, change in the organization did not consider the customers needs. Eventually the division where I working for have decline in Sales revenue over the last 3 years. My peers and subordinate always worked as a team and our customer loved the service and the performance of the my group.
The hardest part of the job was the work/life balance because of the administrative work requirement increase exponentially because our management was trying to manage the business without contacting the customer.
The most enjoyable part was the satisfaction of solving customer process problems within a win-win environment and the development of the water and process treatment market share in the Dominican Republic in the Power, Pharmaceutical, HPI and Mining industry sector.

Operation Analyst / Consultant (Current Employee) – Bangor, ME – January 25, 2017
The people are great to work with every day. A typical day would be to help any user with an issue that may it be computer, software or phones related. Working on projects for networking VLAN's or barcode system. Every day you learn something new, you never get bored.
Onsite Machinist A & Work Leader (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 13, 2017
I have worked at GE Power & Water Service Center for more than 16 years. I got a lot of opportunities to work the clients' location to repair all different kinds of machines. These type job assignments have increased a lot of knowledge to me. Great team to work with great benefits.
GREAT! Learned a lot and had the opportunity to move up within the company. GE does tuition reimbursement and earned my degree but does not give easy opportunities to move into a salary job due to having their own OMLP program in which they hire their own created group.
QUALITY CONTROL INSPECTOR (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – December 18, 2016
Management have no type of experience, company is full of interns with 6 month programs and then move on to the next job. Never get the chance to be able to believe and trust your boss. They seem to work off of a time schedule and not quality.
Technical Service Manager (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – October 31, 2016
There was a corporate take over of Alstom Power by GE. As with all take overs, it adversely affected moral. Everyone had to re-apply for their own jobs, or an alternate job. Many were required to relocate. Some were laid off with benefits packages, and some were just fired.

As being in a US company, ive seen through out the years how they establish a working space and culture that helps you interact with other people and everyone is willing to help no matter where they are or what they do, also it is so amazing how well structured the company is and how that simplify a lot of things
Lead Buyer (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – August 22, 2016
It's a great place to work. You learn to deal and work as a team with Manufacturing, Planning and Engineering. There is a great environment to work. And you would need to do a lot of cross-functional activities to get the job done.
