Culture has changed to a GE style. Good for a few, okay for more and bad for the rest.
Support from management
Some project groups are given goals with incentives others not.
Project Leader style is getting mixed results. Some leaders are better or have more achievable projects. For some when things go bad heads roll later.
At a high level fairly good with regular meetings. Some managers are great others go months without talking to reports.
No issue here from my view.
Attitude towards older colleagues
New owners are indifferent to long term employees. Most managers resigned or were laid off. Replacements are often in place quickly and linked to new management.
Good for new employees. Older employees not so.
Overall compensation for your work
Generally good. GE Metering employees will keep Midwest employees pay above average. Some bonuses are paid by project and only realized by select employees - can be political.
Customers mostly happy.
If you were hired after the ownership change you have decent job security. If not you can be dog meat at a drop.
Good safety procedures in labs.
Suggestions for improvement
- Do a better job of meshing acquisitions at an engineer level. Oddly this doesn't happen enough or at all.
What I like about the company
Very dynamic new owners. Better to try something and fail rather than do nothing or the same.
What I dislike about the company
Too many good employees resigned or were laid off. New system for projects works poorly too often.
