working at GE
In the first few days in General Electrics, I started to learn the company culture and its history. It was founded by Edison, and has a long history over 100 years. I went to work in 2 spots of GE in Beijing, one was in downtown and the other was in suburb. First I went to the on in the suburb, and it was larger than I imagined. It has giant meeting room, dining court, sport center, and any other facilities I could think of in order to push their employees work and live better. Then I walked to my working place, which is in the public relations department. My colleagues told me that GE was imitating the seating pattern of Google company, that was, each employee could signed up for their seat in their area for one day, and next day they could change the seat spot. And the supervisors could be possible to seat near the subordinates. This was a good way to push employees in different level to communicate. And I also learned how to send emails to my boss, how to communicated with my colleagues, and how to keep track with the government policies every day. I was very productive during the internship period in GE.
