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 have been working at General Motors

    Pros

    The co-workers are great. There is a lot of oppurtunities to do different things in many different areas of the company.

    Cons

    The problem is that the oppurtunities for advancement are not there. It seems that upper management has determined already who will get promoted before any interviews are conducted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Explain to people why things are done. Too many times there are changes or decisions without any good explination. Sometimes you just hear, because that is how so and so wants it.
