Field Service Representative (Former Employee) – Rancho Cucamonga, CA – August 20, 2017
I would never consider going back to GE just because what they have done to 90 of us core GE employees. Our division was the bread winner for GE and they laid all of us off just to hand over the work to Granite Services which ended up failing after 2 years.
Site Lead (Current Employee) – Paxton, IL – August 12, 2017
A typical day for me would involve determining a plan of the day for my team. Addressing down turbines takes precedence with keeping the safety culture the number 1 priority. Organizing additional work with contractors to efficiently complete daily tasks keeping cost margins low. Striving to keep the daily availability above 98% to be competitive in the marketplace and making sure all required maintenance on all 94 WTGs at site is completed in a timely manner.
JAVA Developer /Backend developer (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – July 27, 2017
I personally enjoyed working for GE Power. The management genuinely cared about the developers and they cared about ensuring we had a good career trajectory. The benefits at GE are amazing as you would expect for any large organization but the pay is below market, they are working on that. The only issue I would have with GE is that its a good old boys club and some of the technology centers have a real clicky bro culture thing going on, which is weird. Its kind of like stepping back into high school or college.
Awesome snacks, apple everything, great benefits
Bro culture in some locations, lower pay than the industry

The workplace culture was great. The work instruction were very helpful. The job was not hard. The most enjoyable part of the job was the helpful team culture.
Lead Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – July 25, 2017
I had a good experience working at GE Power before the recent downturn. I learned a lot in my different roles through my 16+ years over there. Chance of promotion to higher position would be limited due to its size and organization structure. Overall it was a good company to work with in many aspects.
Good benefit, flexible work hours, above average work environment and diversed company culture
Limited promotion opportunities, some beauracracy in upper management, lack of communication between different departments
Just another worker bee in the hive (Current Employee) – Greenville, SC – July 14, 2017
I've talked to both current and former employees and they all say the same thing. "What happened. GE used to be a good place to work." That pretty well sums it up. Now everyone's just waiting on the next wave of layoffs. All the glowing reviews on here are coming from office workers out of touch with what's going on out in plant.
Executive - Services Operations (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 26, 2017
Excellent company, work hard, network and you will do well. There is a huge amount of opportunity with a business the size of GE Power. Getting your foot in the door is step one, next go above and beyond to get your job done and do it exceptionally well - you will succeed. Networking is also a major must internally at GE.
Good teams of engineers, but typical large company culture
Lead Engineer - Customer Project Engineering (Former Employee) – Greenville, SC – May 31, 2017
While the engineers at GE are top-notch, the atmosphere is to grind out work and put it above other areas of work-life balance. Management is somewhat supportive, but seem to be more concerned with their own rep than to lift up employees. Very difficult to move up, no formal training, little opportunity to get outside training as well.
Great campus with health club, canteens, walking path, good coworkers
Too lean, business seems adrift of late, little management support for employee growth
