I have been working at General Motors

Pros

Making exciting products if you are into cars...taking home a Corvette or a CTS-V or the latest plug in Spark or Volt is much more exciting for me than my friend's perks n Silicon Valley who get to take home the latest software on their laptop. Very good pay for the area's cost of living. Good vacation plan. Good schools. Overall good for families.

Cons

Have to live with critics all around in press and public due to the 80's and recent bailout.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on career paths and doing more to reduce silos (still many departments that should be combined.

    I worked at General Motors

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits. Great opportunity to expand to different functional career areas while staying within the same company. Significant amount of responsibility given to low level employees. Excellent training. Excellent policies and procedures, and work related technology tools (like Peoplefinder).

    Cons

    Uninformed management not qualified to do the job of their subordinates. Extreme arrogance in middle management. Too much middle management. A "good 'ol boy" network that is alive and well.
