Jack Welch Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
John Francis Welch Jr. (November 19, 1935 – March 1, 2020) was an American business executive, chemical engineer, and writer. He was chairman and CEO of General Electric (GE) between 1981 and 2001. When he retired from GE he received a severance payment of $417 million, the largest such payment in business history. In 2006, Welch's net worth was estimated at $720 million.
An employee had this to say in a forum, "Too many hours for too little pay (average $10/hr or less per class) >Way too much turnover in faculty; three lead professors in six months time >Lack of true academic leadership >Poor corporate culture that lives and dies by NPS scores >Courses are super structured with pre-determined and DATED curriculum >Professors have zero opportunity to teach anything but are expected to basically babysit mid-career professionals to push them towards a successful finish line even though a few students may not be qualified MBA students nor have earned the grades or completion >Students' opinions/complaints guide leadership's decisions even though the students are wrong -- and the talented faculty pay the price >Way too focused on national rankings instead of actual quality education"
Sr. Graduate Admissions Officer (Former Employee) says"Telemarketing. The culture is demoralizing. To move up or remain employed you have to really suck up, job performance in no way maintains any stability. Cons: Everything else"
Admissions Officer (Former Employee) says"I was on the phone with students from all around the world asking if they wanted a MBA. A lot of the times, students would brush you off saying it was too $$. I was let go with 6 other employees because of budget cuts."
Jack Welch says"Contacted them many times about not getting my deposit back, I'm still yet to get a reply. DO NOT USE!"
Roman Krol says"Don't use Budget - You will be conned! We got ripped off at Naples airport. Paid for car hire online in the UK and declined additional insurance policies. Arrived at Naples airport where I was asked by the agent if I wanted a damage excess policy. I had a separate one in place so declined. I was presented with a long contract to sign, written in Italian with the usual Xs for signatures. After our trip, I noticed my credit card had been charged with an additional £51. Querying this with Budget, I was sent the contract which showed I'd been charged for Personal accident insurance. They also sent me an unsigned, English version of the contract which I was not given at the airport. As they had my signature, they were not prepared to repay the £51 which they had obtained either by mistake (if I'm being charitable) or by dubious business practice. I've since read many reviews which show that this is a common practice for Budget and I've learned my lesson: 1. Never to use Avis/Budget ever again. 2. Demand an English version of the contract and spend time reading all the detail however much it riles people waiting in the queue behind you. 3. Always ask for a hard copy to take with you. 4. As an aside, always take photos of the vehicle and fuel gauge before and after your hire."
Peter MacLeod says"I have given them 1 star as there is no option for zero stars.They charged me for roadside assistance and I had not requested this. Lesson learnt is to check the small print from this type of company and never trust them. I would never use them again."
Gillian Wasson says"Not surprised there are so many poor reviews. I was charged extra after my trip for "roadside assistance" despite having prepaid my car hire and the Budget/Avis staff at Zurich Airport not having mentioned anything about extra charges or roadside assistance - they just snuck it on to the small print in my rental agreement. I'll never use Budget or Avis again."
