I have been working at General Motors as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Nice People, but they don't use technology effecively and rarely think of new/better ways of doing a task. My boss did give me a chance to meet with other departements so that I could have a better understanding of the business.

Cons

You can see why they went under, totally inefficent and money spent on lots of unecessary projects. People were impressed with me using Power Point (really?). It was partially due to an older work force, but that's still not acceptable. Some people were still using projection slides for presentations.

Advice to Management

Spend money like it's your own.

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

    Pros

    GM is a great company for providing opportunities and helping to develop your skills. They have good benefits and pay competitively.

    Cons

    GM tends to abuse their best employees by giving them the toughest jobs as their reward for doing good work, since they are the only ones that they can trust to get the job done. They struggle to differentiate between good and bad employees and treat both as equals as far as benefits are concerned.

    Advice to Management

    GM needs to continue to flatten the organization because there is still too much bureaucracy in the company to be lean and move quickly.


  2. Solid internship but was not offered job full time
