General Motors – Why Work For Us?


At GM, we believe that striking a positive work-life balance leads to an engaged, productive work force. In fact, we believe that by empowering our employees to explore flextime and telecommuting options, not only can we attract and retain the best talent, but we can also experience winning business results that can give GM a competitive advantage.


GM recognizes that diversity in the workplace is all about creating an inclusive Workplace of Choice that welcomes and enables all employees to perform at their highest potential toward achieving GM’s business objectives and each individual’s professional goals. We invest in educating and training our employees on the importance of diversity as a business and cultural imperative. It’s important that all employees feel included and have a voice in shaping the quality of work life at GM.

We sponsor 12 different employee resource groups that serve as a vital communications link between senior leadership and the ideas and thoughts of employees from various backgrounds and experiences, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, national origins and generations. Most importantly, we engage all of our team members in helping to design, build and sell the world’s best vehicles. We recognize that people are truly our greatest asset and we will only be successful when our employees are able to freely be themselves and perform at their highest capabilities inside GM and within the GM’s current Employee Resource Groups include:

  • Asian Indian Employee Resource Group
  • Chinese Employee Resource Group
  • GM Employee Resource Group for Women
  • GM African Ancestry Employee Resource Group

General Motors believes in giving back to society. From our classroom-ready lesson plans that help teachers of students from grades K-12 discover and take an interest in pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and math, to our GM Foundation designed to improve the quality of life in neighborhoods, GM remains an active presence in local communities.


General Motors is a great car and truck manufacturer with a long history of outstanding corporate citizenship. At GM, corporate responsibility is more than words. It is an acknowledgment that our actions shape our reputation. You may be asking yourself what a car company has to do with education. At GM, we would say “a lot.” We’ve built student content and classroom-ready lesson plans to help inspire students to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers.


At General Motors we strive to make our facilities more environmentally-friendly. From things like building design and maintenance of wildlife habitats on our property, to clean-up and redevelopment of Brownfield sites. We also proud to say that we have the largest rooftop solar panel installation in the world, which helps us utilize alternative energy— allowing us to conserve energy and lessen our impact on the environment.

    Working in GM, you can get a lot of support. If you want to make something out, you can live very well. If you want live a comfortable life, this is also a good place for you.


    Sometimes it looks like nobody care what you are doing. You are just a small nail, the company can run very smoothly without you. You may not exist in some people's eyes especially when you are working in the r@d.
