GE’s reorg could create significant room for leadership positions down the line. Entering a company at a time of restructuring is also an experience you could not replicate / trade for the world. Raytheon is the safe choice but if you want an incredible learning experience & unique story for MBA applications + future career in general, the GE program is the clear, easy choice. Just get more color on what the rotations will be and how the program will be managed post re-org.

I really appreciate the insight. I didn’t look at it from that perspective!

I did FMP from 2018-2020, the program is very well known and a great starting point career wise. My 4 rotations were in SF, Boston, Houston, and London. At the end of the 2 years I found a great job externally fairly easily. That being said, who knows what GE will look like in 2 years. They are splitting into 3 companies so there’s a good chance the program you finish looks nothing like the program you started. I loved the FMP but with so much uncertainty about the company’s future I’d suggest taking the Raytheon job.

I appreciate your insight!

Need some advice. I’m 21, my partner is 29. We have a son together. As I get older, I realize I don’t know if I’m ready to settle down completely. I know that sounds crazy, because I am a mom, but I want to travel around and my partner thinks it’s not doable with a family. I also want to eventually move out of state to explore other opportunities, but he’s not interested. He thinks we are just at two different points in our life. Is this a reason to part ways?
