General Electric (GE) Energy Reviews

What is it like working at General Electric (GE) Energy?

December 2014
"Challenging work with a good work/life balance."
Design Engineer:
Pros: Interesting and challenging work. Interaction with many other people from different parts of GE. No need to "punch the clock" at 8am everyday. Nice work/life balance. Good pay and the ability to move up the ladder. Career development initiatives and the management is concerned that you're pursuing your interests.
Cons: The communication between groups needs to be improved. It's easy to get lost and confused when working on a large project.
December 2014
"Challenging work with a good work/life balance."
Design Engineer:
Pros: Paid training (e.g: ASME BPV codes, transient analysis, lean six sigma) Great work/life balance: they're understanding of coming in later, no need to "punch the clock" at 8 am everyday. Open to constant improvement; no need to hide your problems; it's encouraged to raise the issues. Good pay.
Cons: Communication could be better between some groups. It's a large company so it's easy to get confused on some projects. Work computers could be better, a bit slow and frustrating at points.
February 2015
Senior Mechanical Engineer:
Pros: I have some great people to work with @GE, and I like the usefulness of my product/area of expertise (Heavy Duty Gas Turbines). I have a great boss (11 of 13 of my GE direct & "dotted line" reports have been excellent). The product continues to improve and there is both the need and opportunity to learn more of our technology. I have been able to influence the retrofit product market basket over the years, and enjoy interfacing with both design & sales worlds. As an engineer, I like to solve problems and can find win-win solutions to customer problems.
Cons: The continuous re-organizations and HR forced job churn has created a rather unwieldy "matrix" organization with fewer product/system experts and jumbled information management systems on the working level. We have fabulous pockets of expertise, but the "chimney" arrangement makes it harder to find. I believe that many of our problems result from management fads taught at MBA schools. The current executive grooming process encourages short sighted infrastructure decisions because the consequences are easily escaped by taking another business assignment. This is likely endemic to heavy industrial companies rather than peculiar to GE. We get paid to overcome problems and get things done. Whatever the corporate system, it is gratifying to get hardware out the door that keeps the power flowing on the grid.
September 2015
"Strong technical professional with > 12 years of experience."
Senior Mechanical Engineer:
Pros: Process oriented organisation. Non-Bureaucratic culture. Equal opportunity. Good investment in employee's training. Less micro management. Flexible work timing. Vast organisation with tremendous opportunities. Timely rewards and recognition.
Cons: Hardly anything.
February 2019
"Very Dynamic Environment."
Senior Finance Manager in Baden:
Pros: Freedom to Organise My work
Cons: Priorities changing too fast. Missing structure and guidance.
April 2019
"Lack of formal training, tooling, equipment, supplies, reactivate with EHS, accountably failure with policies, no transparency,"
Maintenance Technician in Houston:
Pros: Climate control and working hours
Cons: Lack of transparency, lack of investment into employees and business, no merit increases no incentives
