My experience at GE Aviation has been great. I'm currently a Mechanical Engineering major and I have done 1 co-op with them. I'm doing my second one right now. One thing I love is that I get to travel with this company while I'm in college. My first rotation was in Cincinnati, Ohio. My current rotation is in Auburn, Alabama. I've learned so much from this experience. I was given meaningful projects and my assignment leaders and managers challenged me to do great things. I was exposed to technology that I didn't even know existed, and I found passion in these technologies. I definitely recommend this company!

Too much flux after last CEO, the company was run down by Immelt and not enough has been done to rectify that situation. Loads of layoffs and early forced retirements are not fixing the issues of lagging sales and lagging technology. The company is made up of great people but leadership really let the people and the stockholders down over the past few years.
Very diversified and allows a flexible schedule. Great benefits and great people.
Management is very knowledgeable about the products, service and clients.
GE encourages time off and allows for a family life with work and long hours.
