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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    Solid pay and benefits, some good people who know their business. Some of those people are trying to turn the company around, but it is a big challenge in light of the entrenched bureaucracy.

    Cons

    Bizarre leadership focus too often; inconsistent and frankly too low performance expectations. There are too many mindless bureaucrats within the organization that plod along, working to avoid any responsibility. Too often, it seems like the main objective is to avoid making any decision that might mean responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many times "team" is used as a cover for lack of individual responsibility and accountability.
