The safety of the work place
Mechanic Technician (Former Employee), Riverside missouriNovember 18, 2013
Pros: the pay was great, the workers were really enjoyable.
Cons: the mass lay offs
I will say the job was always safty first every morning I would go into work every morning and we would have our morning warm up streechs then we would be told of the daily tasks that needed to be done. I would go to my work station get the gear case's underway. I learned alot about the inner working of the big locmotives that I was working on. Management,I would say they would do a decent job, some of them did not how to do half of the jobs that they were trying to teach some of the workers about. I like all of my coworkers I never really had any problem with anyone within the factory.
The hardest part of the job, there were times I was working a job that requires atleast two to three personal, at the same time by myself.
The best part has to be waking up early working hard and going home with new knowledge of the job and knowing that I worked really hard the job.

Flow Leader (Current Employee), Erie, PAOctober 17, 2013
Pros: experience
Cons: job security
Flexibility is a must. Constant changes to supply and demand, along with customer needs. Staying ahead or on top of daily responsibilities is a must. Multitasking is a must.

What I Learned
A/R Specialist (Current Employee), Lawrence Park, PASeptember 9, 2013
Pros: gym, own office, adjustable hours, good pay
Cons: communication, contact employment
I learned that business has many short-falls, and is quickly becoming depersonalized. For not having a business background I quickly noticed where things could be improved. It all begins with communication, and this is evident from the ground up.

Stuck in the past
Lead Test Engineer (Current Employee), Erie, PAMay 15, 2013
Pros: large company, room to move around
Cons: healthcare is poor, people unwilling to change
My experience with GE Transportation has been less than pleasant. I was hired because of my past experiences with other companies that build/test engines, an agent of change if you will. I quickly learned that there is NO desire by the vast majority of employees in Erie to change. Departments / groups are very segregated (in silos if you will) with very little if any cross function with anyone on the "outside" unless there is "something in it for me". GE even has "inclusiveness" training for their employees where they teach you how to "persuade" your fellow workers to work with you (treat them like they are your kids, make it look like it is their idea, make it look like you are the fool so that they look like they are showing you how to do your job etc.).
Management wants change, yet they pass on the "low hanging fruit" for one reason or another. Overly reactive to the market, changes focus too frequently. Projects NEVER has room for slip (Have to hit a home run EVERY SINGLE TIME).

Poor Morale and Declining Incentives
Manager (Current Employee), PennsylvaniaOctober 28, 2012
Pros: no pros
Cons: too many to list
Benefits get reduced each year, no incentive compensation, poor work-life balance, limited career growth and zero recognition for performance. Most new hires quit within 1-2 years, finding far better work environments, productive cultures and better total compensation elsewhere. Long-term staff stay for convenience but tend to be disengaged.

Overall GET is a good company to work for.
Global Commodity Leader (Current Employee), Erie, PAAugust 16, 2012
- GET would provide you freedom to initiate and implement any new idea you may have to improve the business.
- It cares about training its employees
- Location of the company is not great.
- Expect to travel.

Not a boring minute
LEAD SVCP ENGINEERING (Former Employee), Erie, PAAugust 8, 2012
Pros: respectful work athmosphere
Cons: lake effect snow
Typical day of an SVCP Engineer is to conduct cost cutting projects in all major assembly buildings. The best part of the job is interacting with the professional assemblers in all sections. These are dedicated to their job and know their stuff well. Managers are smart people that recognize good work and praise accordingly. I didn't notice the scheming and corporate cut-throat maneuvering that I have witnessed at other sites. The technical openness is definitively GETS key to the innovation that occurs at Erie, as well as the scope and depth of the expertise that is cultivated there.
