Default General electric pay and prospects

I've recently been offered a position with GE energy in one of their leadership programs. I grad from NUS with a 2nd upper honours in engr with decent CCA records etc. The starting pay is on the low side at 3k a month. Wonder if this is the norm and if I should try and negotiate it up ( since i have offers that are significantly higher)

Also, any kind souls here knows about GE and their leadership programs and possible progression?

That makes sense then, I remember FMP being at around 3.5k a month. Operations is not the most glamourous career in the world... 3k sounds about right, even though it does say leadership. Should set you up pretty well for business school though.

hmm let's say I had another offer with 10% higher pay(another management associate prog) in a local GLC that is pretty big and regional, GE's omlp still trumps right? I just feel slightly shortchanged in terms of starting salary since I also rejected a back office job in a local bank tt paid around 1k more.

Personally I'd take GE over any GLC.

Wrt back office in local bank, my gut feel (I have neither worked in nor seen the job description for either role, however I do work partially in operations consulting) is that when you are in a back office (I'm assuming it's ops) bank job, what you do is execute the operational processes. OLMP seems like you'd have more of a chance to actually design the processes that other people execute. If that is the case I'd take GE for the learning experience.

I was laughing at the objective of the OLMP.

"In this role you will use your experience or expertise to solve problems, develop and execute objectives for self and others, and have the ability to effect short-term and some long-term business goals"

What can a fresh graduate know ? No experience definitely. Expertise ? You gotta be kidding

Back to the main topic again. If I am you, the question I should be asking is what happens after the end of this programme ? What will you be hired as ? Operations engineer or manager ? Or as a supply chain / business process / lean / sigma six consultant or analyst kind of stuff ? Cos this is the impression that I get from reading the description. Are u interested in these areas or does it pay well ?

If you don't like the company after the two years and u wana change job, will the experience in the two years be marketable ?

For BO in banks, i think enough has been said in this forum. Go figure.
