General Electric is one amazing company
What place are you interning at? I've got a few friends that work up there and they are putting in a good word for me. They pay to put you through EIT and everything. Its a 4 year management apprenticeship. I'm really hoping that I can get in and get the hell out of here!

I work on Cat and Mercedes motors all day long lol. We manly have C-12's and C-13's. I'll admit hooking the laptop and running engine diagnostics on them is kind of cool. I'd rather have a job were I didn't have to break my back everyday.

Not when it comes to paying there people it doesn't!
I know a few people that have and do work there. They get paid very handsomely. Not to mention the retirement funds.

Probably because they're working in high level positions. If you've ever watched your local television station, you'd notice how bare the newscasts are in comparison to a few years ago. Try to see if you can spot some people in the background when they're doing newsroom shots.

Don't even get me started on their theme parks.

General Electric -> NBC Universal -> Universal Studios -> Universal Theme Parks & Resorts.

Edit: To give General Electric some credit, they really do know how to manage their subsidiaries in order to drive a profit - even if it means having a minimal spend approach to business.
