    I have been working at General Motors

    Pros

    I was able to work here while attending college. Thanks to a good wage and tuition assistance, I will graduate debt free.

    Cons

    I haven't had a negative experience here. I hope that they can figure out a way to eliminate the two-tier system once the new contract is made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that the management team does a great job. GM's quality is up and sales are stronger than ever.

    Great set of people, willing to help and great fun working here. Coming in i was a bit nervous but this environment is simply amazing. Hope it continues to stay like that.

    Cons

    Hard to go up the ladder for people just out of college

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it performance based for new college hires and make sure they get rewarded by sending them up a level. Even though my performance has been good there is no chance for me to go up for few more years and it is disappointing.
