A Company Worth Saving

Intern (Former Employee)
Detroit, MI

ProsThe salary, work environment, and perks are one of the best, compared to other very large corporations, and they have some of the best resources to make their own products. The employees are extremely talented, friendly, and helpful.
GM is one of three American companies which manufacture their automobiles in the United States, and I think that is an important enough reason to support the continuation of its production. Although GM may be notoriously known for the large size of their automobiles, I believe the concept of having an American branded car has a lot of potential in establishing American presence on a global basis.

ConsIt takes forever to see anything change.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the effort in building greener cars. Also, although I am not a business major, I think something needs to be re-looked at in the financial structure of the company from what I am reading in the news.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
