    I worked at General Motors full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    smart analyst. best in class finance and engineering staff and facilities.
    great brand name. now have a clean sheet and lot of baggage shed
    smart engineers.
    finance whiz have been humbled.
    many retiring in next 5-10 years.

    Cons

    too many layers and old General Managers and above trying to protect turf and keep fat in organization. dull HR.
    some old guard while necessary will stop GM from being innovative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    now that you have a clean sheet from Chapter 11, question every major initiative of Executive Director and above that sounds self promoting or process creating. Hire from colleges creatively and when hiring from outside, be opportunistic. Their timing and your timing may not match. Retain good people by giving them important assignments.
