Disapproves of CEO

I worked at General Motors full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

GM has some exceptionally bright people in its workforce.

Cons

GM's finance leadership and CEO are focused on stock prices and profitability and continue to show little interest in the core business. Because of this, GM continues to lose market share.

Advice to Management

Need to balance all aspects of business and focus on more than just the bottom line. This did NOT work in the past and will NOT work going forward. The US taxpayers gave up a lot to keep GM afloat. Don't disappoint them.

    I worked at General Motors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    o Opportunities and the belief that the better your performance... the greater your value to the company. o Great vehicles and awesome technology at a viable price-point for the majority of the U.S. population. o Resources and tools are available. o Training is a 'part of life' and is integrated into performance reviews. o Business metrics and expectations are clearly articulated.

    Cons

    o Number of employees - is massive. In the downturn of the economy - 2009 - 'cuts' were made along product lines and were not applied to performance reviews or business metrics. o

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk and value those who perform versus penalizing with forced early retirements when our 401Ks took a beating for believing and support the company.
