Employee Comments

  • Jan 27, 2015
    Current Employee in Austin, Texas

    Overall - above average. Minimum 3 weeks vacation and ~16 holidays (which includes xmas-new year shutdown). 4% 401K match and company automatically contributes another 4%. Basic health is reasonable but high deductible plan but company offers $1500 incentive to help offset. No stock purchase. Bonuses are based on company and individual performance multipliers against your base % which is dependent on grade level.

    Quite a bit of vacation days. Quick and easy to accrue

    Current Employee in Warren, Michigan

    Vision not included, must pay separate from health plan

  • Jan 4, 2015
    Current Senior Buyer in Warren, Michigan

    10 years of employment you are eligible for 25 days vacation+ 17 days paid holiday

    Current Employee in Detroit, Michigan

    Good overall benefits package and pretty competitive with traditional companies

    Current Product in Warren, Michigan

    Best profit sharing bonus to salaried employees in the same auto industry. Twice as much as Ford. Much better health insurance than competitors in terms of premium and coverage. Best decision I made when I left Ford.

    Current Senior Systems Engineer in Detroit, Michigan

    Low premium health and dental insurance. Good 401K match (4%) plus an additional 4% contribution by GM. Several paid holidays plus 15 vacation days to start. If you're fortunate enough to qualify for a company car, it's one of the better programs out there for an automotive OEM.

  • Dec 11, 2014
    Current Per Diem Group Leader in Arlington, Texas

    The best thing about the benefits package as a per diem group leader is the $25.00 co-pay for doctors visits, great dental and vision benefits If you've been with the company at least 10 years.

    Current Software Tester in Austin, Texas

    Vacation time is adequate. Moving around within the company seems to be difficult
