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.
There are hundreds of people works there and it is my pleasure that I could be one of them. I gained experience by solving some drawling problems and dealing with the bill of material chart. The whole group member treated me as a family member. Also, their dinning hall are awesome!
1. People working around are very friendly and ready to help. 2. The working environment is very comfortable, and employees have space to relax and communicate. 3. The company pays great attention to innovation and respects original ideas. 4. Engineering work really needs detail and deadline is also important.
I worked as a marketing intern in GE China energy. Most of the days I went to work around 8 am and went home at 5 pm. In the days I learned the GE spirit, the marketing principles and other techs like SWOT and schedule activities, help mentor to gather information and deal with sundries. What worth mentioning is that here I learned the responsibility of marketing in large enterprise is not only to build corporation image but also truly benefit the society (A lesson given by my mentor. When I recommended to use poster to advertise our volunteer activity, he told me that).The environment at GE was comfortable. My table was located near the sales department and I could see all the sales manager negotiating, networking and meeting via phone(Another thing I learned in GE, later I also organized a teleconference by my self) . They are busy all day long but very fun when I talked with them. I also participated a sales training in GE, learned a lot and want to learn more.The hardest part in GE is to maintain the high standard of my job. Everything must be almost perfect (including the PPT I made). Because, as an intern, I represent the whole company.And on the other hand, all the challenging is also the most enjoyable part. Thanks to GE for giving me such a experience.
