I have been working at General Motors

Pros

GM is a great company to work for, I have a high level of pride when I tell people I work for GM. In my position, I am empowered to make decisions and control the product development that I am responsible for. GM is not just a US company, we are a Global company, and have improved the living standards of many people who have worked for us and for the suppliers and businesses that that support our manufacturing.

Cons

As with any large corporation, there is a certain amount of difficulty with communication between the layers of workers and between departments. This has improved drastically in the last few years, but still remains to some extent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work! I believe we are on the right track and have some of the best product and highest quality that we have ever had. We are at a turning point in our evolution, and we will come out of this stronger than we were when the economic problems began.

    You ask to much personal information, it makes it difficult to get people to participate.

    Pros

    It is good work representing good people. It is great products, built with pride by Americans supporting the Manufacturing backbone of this country. GM is rebuilding it's image and products to compete in a Global Market. It is interesting work during troubled times. I expect that Gm will turn this situation around and be stronger than anyone predicts today.

    Cons

    Bad times, make for limited promotions and opportunities to achieve more. So little control over the forces that work against us. The weak economy, the banking crisis, the lending crisis, etc....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the the Strong Marketting Campaign moving. I think that America should get reacquainted with GM the Company. A strong contributer to our communities, we need to promote ourselves as a vibrant active part of communities that we live and work in.

    Pros

    None, except for the pay check and benefits, and really, the benefits and pay are average for a major corporation.

    Cons

    GM used to be a company that was a very good place to work at. Unfortunately because of incompetent management appointments and decisions, they have run this company into the ground. GM is big on culture and internal politics. They love people that go along with status quo. Open your mouth and disagree with the bosses and you will be labeled Not A Team Player!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Car Sales should be the number one priority. Here's a simply concept for them, the consumer wants a quality product at a reasonable price that doesn't break down. People work hard for their money and want to get the most out of it. Right now, they view GM products as not meeting this requirement.
