Productive work and interaction with colleagues, doctors and medical staff.
It was an on-field job therefore required lots of travelling but this all in all was a good experience as every day i used to get to meet different doctors having different point of views. Each doctor has it's own way of handling the instrument. Along with demonstarting the ultrasound machine i used to spend a lot of time assisting the sonographer/radiologist/cardiologist/gynaecologist in setting up the resolution of the machine which in turn helped me learn how to scan a patient like a radiographer, how to diagnose a medical problem in the area of interest. So, apart from working as an application specialist i got an oppurtunity to learn the medical aspect involved in it.Handling wide range of applications like abdomen, obstetrics, pediatric, urology, gyneacology, cardiology, small parts and vascular parts further enhanced my knowledge.
Prosinteractions with a lot of people related to medical industry
My first corporate job.
Typically the day used to be packed with a time devoted mainly for sourcing profiles, coordination for interviews, vendor payments and candidate management and attending trainings related to recruiting/ sourcing techniques.
I learned a lot about the corporate process of recruitment. The headcount approvals, process and policies normally involved in recruiting/ interviewing a candidate.
Management is very helpful and open to give appreciations and guide the new comers to the system.
Coworkers are a great zeal of energy. Since ours was a very young team, we used to have fun at work (after office hours or when free time)
Hardest part of job was nothing
Enjoyable part of job was everything. Internal customers were really helpful and fast when it came to closing a position and helpful in short notice interviews if the panels are not available.

Perks are good as you get good allowance for travel. You get to learn a lot with the team (application team), which is truly helpful.
Other departments never really co-operate.
Decent salary but good incentive which you only get if you claim it which is a headache in itself as you are preoccupied with all that travel that you would not really put your head into with the sales team.
You have to travel a lot and sometime don't even get weekends to relax. Comp Offs are given with justification. If I can remember correctly I personally have worked a complete month with just 2-3 days off. Saturdays and Sundays are working as their is always some conference or marketing seminars that application personal have to attend.
Definitely it's a place where you can grow in long term by sacrificing your personal life.

When I joined the GE Laser Modality in its heyday, it was the top grossing earner of all the GE Health Care service modalities.
I was given quite a lot of leeway in deciding how to do my job. I set my own priorities for the most part, and basically followed the 3 C's mandate . . . Customer satisfaction, Continual improvement, and Compliance with standards.
As a Laser Field Engineer at GE, I worked out of my home office, and and took calls from GE dispatch. Demand calls (emergency field repairs) took precedence over PM's (scheduled planned maintenance). And demand calls from contract customers took precedence overall.
As you may imagine, doctors, nurses, and hospital staff can be quite concerned when a laser goes down, so customer "temperature" (sense of urgency) was also taken into consideration when prioritizing call responses.
It was up to me to decide how to use my time, and when I found out GE would pay for me to earn an MBA, I went for it. I was able to complete that degree online, from many different parts of the country.
For example, if I had just completed a job in the DC area and traffic was thick during the evening rush hour, I would pull over and go to a Panera restaurant. There, I would use their Wifi to finish up job-related administrative work, and then get busy with school. After a few hours, I would drive the 200 miles back home in light traffic. It worked out fine.
We had teleconferences on a regular basis, so I and others in the Nort
Une grosse boite qui tient du mammouth qui se fait un point d'honneur à cumuler toutes les tares qu'on peut attendre de ce genre d'entreprise :
* management au jour-le jour sans vision à long terme, aucune compétence technique, déconnecté de la réalité des développeurs. Leur seul outil de mesure est le nombre de bug que vous fixez par jour
* code ultra-vieillissant saturé de mauvais design et de mauvaise pratiques. Belle compilation de tout ce qu'il ne faut pas faire. Les manager refusent toute refonte, seul le taux de fixage de bugs par jour compte.
* réunionnite aiguë : facilement 4h par semaine, les managers assis, les dev debouts, une réunion peut durer 1h30, vous intervenez 1 minutes sur votre partie et attendez en baillant que ça se finisse.
* pléthore d'acronymes pompeux et incompréhensibles pour désigner tout et rien, ce qui complexie encore une tâche déjà pas simple
* lourdeure extrème dans toutes les procédures, le moindre besoin de base demande des semaines à être remplis
* envirronement technique pas adapté : matériel de travail fait de bric et de broc, on vous fera un PC (obsolète) avec ce qu'on trouve dans l'étage
* environnement technique pas adapté: outils logiciels vieillissant, tous Windows-only (bug tracker, mails, chats), quand les postes de travail sont sous Linux. Vous devez en commander une vous même qui arrivera d'ici un à quatre mois. Jusque là, c'est souffrance bidouille. Et une fois arrivé, avoir ses besoins quotidiens répartis sur PC, ça reste nul.

The General Electric Healthcare facility located in Jupiter, FL on the surface is a mediocre environment. If though you allow it, and if you are discerning enough to peer beneath its surface, it can help you to clearly identify personality flaws & interpersonal and organizational skill weaknesses.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the informal environment with its laid back atmosphere.
A typical day involves interaction with many personality types, all with their specific quirks and idiosyncrasies. This facet of the organizational culture can encourage diversity, patience, tolerance, and a willingness to work with others.
I have learned that I was not as corporate ready as I once thought. I have learned that seeing people every day makes you keenly aware of their flaws, in turn, making them seemingly more difficult to deal with. This is when maturity & professionalism become extremely important. I have learned that the most powerful force in any organizational culture is a positive attitude.
I have learned that often times, managers are coerced into their positions, and that in many cases, what is perceived to be a bad manager, is essentially a decent person who does not really desire to be a manger. I have learned that when decisions are made, it is almost never personal - just business. I should not be taken as a personal attack. I have learned that ultimately, I am in control of how I feel, how productive I am, and my overall well-being.
ProsHelps to clearly identify weaknesses with interpersonal & organizational skills, flexible schedule
ConsManagement deficiency, few performance incentives, lack of professionalism
My morning would begin with a walk through the GE Suites to make sure there isn't anything out of place or any suspicious packages laying around in any of the suites and access control of the suites . Than I would log on to my computer and checked the Ivisitors systems to see who was visiting the GE site for the day and what times they was coming and who they we're coming to see. Once they arrived I would assign them a visitor badge and escort them to meet their contact person inside GE. Other duties that I did would be the inventory of to the office supplies from the cabinets along with the Xerox Copy Machines parts like for example the color Drum cartridges or toner for the Machines and reorder them if they was low on hand. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I love meeting and helping people from all over the world, that came to visit GE and making them feel comfortable and welcome during their stay and to assist them if they needed any help. My day would consist of signing in visitors and signing them out when they departed the site for the day. I also would assign them to a work cube or a office while they we're visiting the GE Bethesda MD site. I also took the pictures for the new employees for their GE Id badge. I also was in charge of receiving Packages from UPS ,FED-EX ,DHL , USPS and different carriers companies and than notify the owners who the packages belongs too ,so that it would be picked up before the end of the day and I picked up the mail from the
Great potential ruined by greedy, uneducated management
A typical day can be anything when working on hospital equipment. The work is exciting if you are an imaging engineer, but can be stressful too. You are sent to training, but this is normally only four days and then you are expected to be a professional in the face of doctors expecting their equipment up and running. GE Healthcare has great potential to be an awesome job. However, due to very under-educated, good old boy management, you sometimes feel lost for direction. My managers seemed to be great at talking on the phone, but never really seemed to know what they were doing day to day. And these are guys that were with GE for well over 20 years. Every market seems to be different, but the one I worked for was very power hungry and incentivized for keeping their pay rates low. Many well experienced men were losing their jobs for a new mentality that was created at the company. This mentality is to use young people straight out of college (most being interns that get no benefits and usually are let go at month 12) to do the work of veteran employees for half the pay rate. I do feel like it is a good job for a young person. Just make sure you are always watching out for your own future because GE is not. I saw many of really good guys forced to leave due to GE trying to show strong quarterly numbers (all the while paying a CEO over 7 million a year). Maybe use this job as a stepping stone to move onto a company that really appreciates your work. The most enjoyable part of th
Prosclean work, 3 free shirts per year
ConsLow pay, lack of communication, no management support, managers with lack of experience or knowledge, a CEO that only cares about stock prices, lack of team
In the days of the iconic CEO and his meritocracy, and those that followed in his shadow, GE was a different company. Often found on the Forbes most admired list and appearing in many HBR case studies and other blogs, the company was filled with type A personalities and a hard charging attitude. Unfortunately, this distanced GE from some of it's customers because they were seen as rigid and inflexible. The inside joke heard from many customers was often "you might buy better, but you wont pay more". While this was sometimes true, and reflected the up and down struggles of the GE product innovation and engineering teams, it was never a long-term common thread in the company. GE churned out great technology, and world-class leadership. The company was committed to dominance in #1 or #2 market positions wherever they played, and they could only accomplish this with outstanding products and customer service, along with committed front line personnel dedicated to assisting their customer. After the economic downturn, GE tried many different strategies to reinvent itself. It cleared house of many of the "blue blood" managers and "highly compensated staff". They tried to imbed simplicity and a more nimble and flexible attitude. Unfortunately, while they accomplished some of these things, they also lost quality. Today the political structure is entirely different, the meritocracy is waning, and some of the creativity has been absent for roughly 5 years. GE will need to pr
ProsBenefits, training, lateral mobility
Consno clear strategy, tarnished one time image, rarely seen as the #1 player in many categories
GE is unlike any other company I've worked for in my carear in healthcare. In the beginning the job was actually very pleasurable and I looked forward to everyday. Customer service was always paramount across the board. Currently things are not as enjoyable as with most economic hard times things change as the business model adjusts to meet the environment. I survived all the attrition at a heavy cost as being the only FE in an area that has been staffed by four FTE's can change your outlook on your job and what you need as an individual. Covering three Western states gives you perspective on your value and career path choices. Over all GE is still an excellant Company, manufacturing very high quality competitive durable medical devices. They will always go the extra mile to make every customer satisfied. Size doesn't matter smallest to the biggest you will get the value GE is known for. The area as described poses some very real challenges especially staffing. It usually becomes to much for most people to handle. Quality of life is somewhere the job has room for improvement. Field Service jobs ingeneral are very demanding on personel requiring extended travel continuos training, many nights away from home and family. If you get satisfaction for working on high tech equipment and don't mind going the extra mile. Benefits have until recently been the best in the industry, currently they are minimal offerings with high deductibles and higher month employe contributions. The Pen
Consbenefits are still offered but covers less, no pension plan for new hires, long hours the employe expectation higher than industry.
GE can pay well, but you need to show you are talented. Even though you are valued it can all change in a minute with a new manager. Over 30 years I had some great managers and many lazy, clueless managers. Sure they dump them or worse yet move them up but it is the employees that must put up with their incompetence. The work can be exciting if you are in the right area with good people, and it was for many years until the revolving managers began. HR and Ombudsman are not to be trusted. GE is regularly sued but never learns its lesson.
The worst part of GE is that they hire people and lay them off constantly. But not usually in large mass layoffs. It is call death of a thousand cuts within GE because it is 1 here, 2 there.... Sure they have lots of regular layoffs too. Right now there is a hiring freeze for the most part as they give people packages to leave and then they will have a lay-off coming up soon. It is a sad way to live your life because you never know if it will be you. And the HR group changes the lay-off guidelines before and then again after most layoffs.
It was one of the greatest places to work. I couldn’t get enough and loved being there. But now many people just eat at their desk, not a lot of smiling going on, and they usually keep the worst slackers when they have a lay-off.
I had a manager who had changed jobs. He was with the HCI for over 6 months but never came in. When he was my manager for over a year we barely saw him, not that we cared because
My coworkers two cubes down would call to talk instead of walk to my cube for face-to-face communication. There wasn't much of an environment in the office. Many times my team members would work from home, but it wasn't an option for me.
Everything was very slow-moving. I had to wait weeks before I had access to any of the tools I needed to do the work I was hired for. If my computer went down or I needed a program downloaded, I had to push the IT department to make anything happen.
I wasn't given much responsibility. They gave very short-sighted projects to me. When they became overwhelmed with work themselves, they would rapidly hand their bigger projects over to me but wouldn't have the time to properly prepare me, and when expectations weren't met they quickly became impatient and accusing.
GE is always cutting costs, and my team was worried about being eliminated. They were creating extra work for themselves in order to keep their jobs, and in-turn my work was unnecessary documentation and meeting orientation that could have easily been done by other teams or updated computer programs that they weren't interested in considering.
It wasn't a healthy/supportive work environment and the work wasn't valuable to building a career, and they had trouble holding onto contractors because of these disparities.
Proslarge company, different opportunities to be hired within the company
Consunhealthy work environment, low job security, questionable value in work
Excelente sitio para coger experiencia y mejorar el curriculum. Es un gigante en todos los aspectos, dispone de la mejor tecnología y de un nivel de conocimiento muy elevado y amplio en los productos que venden. A pesar de todo el discurso moral y la ética empresarial que intentan llevar a rajatabla lo que prevalece al final son única y exclusivamente los resultados. Es bien visto el prototipo de empleado que vive las 24 horas en la oficina o que se lleva el trabajo a casa. Al ser demasiado grande todos los procesos tienen tendencia a eternizarse. El equipo humano de que dispone es en general de primera calidad. Es un referente en su área para la competencia y para todos los clientes.
He aprendido muchísimo mas de lo que me esperaba y en todos los aspectos.
La dirección y los directivos son excelentes profesionales pero gran parte de los mandos intermedios no están a la altura del nivel de los demás empleados.
Los colegas han sido de lo mejor que he tenido en mi vida laboral.
La parte mas difícil fue aguantar el stress diario y lo mejor la relación que he ido construyendo con mis clientes médicos y farmacéuticos a lo largo del tiempo que significo también un excelente servicio a los pacientes de Medicina Nuclear.
