GM still getting it together ... but lots of upsides too

I have been working at General Motors full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

A lot of great people there as well as great resources. Once you learn how to network within the company there are many experts there that are more than willing to help. Also if you're willing to live in Michigan or move, there are lot's of options to move around to new/different jobs.

Cons

Its a very big company and still learning how to become leaner and faster. They try to be more efficient but having "standardized global processes" ... but this can also make things slower and/or stiffle creativity and resourcefulness.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to unleash your strong performers more ... process focus is great but you also need to let your experts do things their way a bit more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees suggestions as many are also consumers of your products.
    Times have changed. Perhaps bench-marking some of the newer large and profiting companies for up-to-date successful new age styles of managing employees would help this company a lot.
