Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Warren, MI

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

Pros

Vehicle discount
Vehicle development can be interesting

Cons

Vehicle discount must be GM
No raises for several years even though reviewed performance is high
Promotion not based on merit
Spend 20 min finding a parking spot at primary engineering center
Age discrimination rampant
Long hours

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leadership does not play the role of leaders (e.g., clearing roadblocks, strategic planning)
Leaders slow to make decisions, waiting for data for every decision so they are not criticized
Negative recent product reviews due to poor leadership (check out CUE review in Consumer Reports)

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
