a very corporate highly hierarchical structured environment, not many opportunities to wear many hats, most team members required to do specific tasks. Can't complain, though a good work-life balance and away from the CBD.

I'd like to work for them again. They treated me well and the Site Manager was great. Unfortunately since passed away, RIP Gordon.I enjoyed the international experience with the mix of cultures and beliefs.

Be sure you make your network strong because you will need a wide ranging, strong, team to work through the demands of the business.
The systems teams are very good - but do form a relationship with them in order to get things done

I handled both out bound and inbound calls in my role, and after a while I move to a more Administrative role.

I would be reviewing accounts and also making decisions on customer online applications, which is both challenging and rewarding.


We had team meeting in the morning to know what our goals where and worked on completing these goals together as a team.

The finance team while I was there was like family. The team meets up outside of work to socialise. Ex-team members kept in touch and still meets up from time to time after GE.

Although working in a small office environment, the sales targets that needed to be met, were at times difficult to achieve. I did have a good manager and the staff were nice.
Pros
Close to home
Cons
Constant pressure to make sales

A huge company which means you can get kind of lost in the masses. The projects were diverse and frequent. Overall an interesting place to work but wouldn't recommend it as the top choices.
Pros
Mant projects
Cons
Too operationally focused, nothing on staff well-being and development.

Fast pace phone sales role, refined time management and prioritisation skills, you had to or you sunk. Hardest part was learning the branch was closing. Most enjoyable, chasing a target in the last couple of days and smashing it.
Pros
Great manager
Cons
Branch closed

Personally, I think GE is out of touch with the blue colour worker and too involved with airy fairy and superfluous wannabes that populate the office space.
I dreaded having to deal with my direct manager as he was incompetent and had previously spent most of his career in the military and had next to no actual offshore experience and truly should not have been in that managerial position.

As is fairly typical these days, every decision was debated and discussed by senior staff at length and hence took an age to resolve.........no one would make a determination.

The hardest part was going along with the apathy and keeping quiet about how inept things had gradually become.

Enjoying my time off made things justifiable, I think!
Pros
Working with some top hands
Cons
Working with incompetents

Long travel with no real benefit.
Developed an in depth understanding of the WA mining, civil and transport industries.

Management was based out of predominantly Eastern States.

Culture was acidic and focused on satisfying internal needs as opposed to customers.

Hardest part was dealing with GE politics and it's limited

A day would start with reviewing all customer files, then followup on what was needed for customers, to proceed with loan applications.
I learned to have good time management skills, and to prioritise.

Management were very supportive, and encouraged us to be self sufficient.

The culture of GE was a great team as we all worked as a team, and supported each other.

The hardest part of my job was , have to decline genuine customers.

The most enjoyable was helping customers.
Pros
Great Team place to work
Cons
Could not advance further in Cairns

GE is a great place to work with ample opportunity to learn new things. Great work culture with plenty of people willing to help you improve and advance your career.

The most challenging aspect of working for GE is the global nature of the company, which put a lot of emphasis on acquiring the skill of managing remote resources.
