Q: What is it like working as a Senior Mechanical Engineer at General Electric (GE) Energy?

Senior Mechanical Engineer in Atlanta:
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.
