SAP Operations Analyst (Current Employee) –  Trevose, PAJanuary 13, 2017
As with any large company, GE is very reluctant to change. Very unapproachable for better approaches. Management is fair, benefits are good. Hard to break the existing barriers.

Great!
Quality Assurance Inspector (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 28, 2016
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.
Pros
TUITION REIMBURSEMENT
Cons
LAY OFF

QUALITY CONTROL INSPECTOR (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 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.

Review
Technical Service Manager (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VAOctober 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.

Typical large company
ERP Data Integration Leader (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAOctober 24, 2016
GE Power is a typical large company. There is a large corporate culture that must be assimilated, and then you must learn to navigate the corporate politics.

Lead Buyer (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 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.
