I worked at General Motors

Pros

This is a huge company with a lot of opportunity. The salaries and benefits are competitive.

Cons

The union makes this a challenging environment. Job security doesn't exist but that no different than most companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Manage during booms for the lean times.

    I worked at General Motors

    Pros

    In my time at GM I had an overall good experience. If you have a good manager you have room for growth and development. The pay and benefits are great. Most supervisors have 20+ years of experience so they know the industry well. Overall, General Motors is a company with some great, experienced people.

    Cons

    Awful industry to work in-- oversized, bloated company. Instability in terms of job future. Average age is 50+. Although people are proud to work for GM, they are not willing to see that even greater change needs to occur for the company to turn around. Hopefully the Volt will help GM but aside from that this company is slowly dying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think of better ways to downsize amount of car brands.

    I have been working at General Motors

    Pros

    good pay and thats it better be able to shovel the sh it and put up with the constant brow beatings!

    Cons

    constant harassment about how you do your job and never treated with respect by management
    they talk down to the employees like little children and quick to punish in you make one mistake out of many cars built.
    Never praise the employees for a job well done
    Don't know where they found the plant manager but told employees that if you don't like what i tell you to do K-Mart was hiring

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is way to top heavy why do we need so many presidents and vice presidents can't the managers handle the work and do away with the so called title and hundreds of presidents and vice presidents come on get real the only reason for the title is for a bigger salary and bonuses no wonder Gm is losing money. Gotta pay the presidents
    Should only be one president and one CEO
