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

Pros

Very interesting work, top notch technical staff. Milford proving grounds is a one of a kind place. I've worked aerospace and the only similar places are Edwards AFB and Pax River.

Cons

Promotions not correlated to your work. Responsibility, performance, and skills don't seem to matter. Even when you are working in a position for which the title is above your current title, the company will not promote or recognize you. Poor talent identification process.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the best product, period. Anything else will land the company back in bankruptcy.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at General Motors full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not so much, realized the company was in trouble in the 1st week of job. Left in 12 month.

    Cons

    No chance for moving up, senior management only cares about covering their back.

    I have been working at General Motors full-time for 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
