General Electric conducts business in virtually every part of the world, with over 180 countries served. GE is active in the fields of energy, aircraft components, medical electrical devices and lighting. With revenue streams of 79.6 billion U.S. dollars, GE is often ranked among the most valuable brands worldwide.

In 2017, the diversified infrastructure and financial services corporation employed around 313,000 people worldwide. This number was greatly reduced in 2019 following poorly performing years. Job losses were seen in many countries, including the United States and France. The firm’s aviation segment raked in the most revenue. Following a tax hike in its home state, the formerly Connecticut-headquartered company decided to move its home base to Boston to keep payments in check.
