Good company to work for… you get out what you put in as everything in life.

Senior Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at General Motors full-time for more than 8 years

Pros1) ability to work with and contribute to current and future product line-up
2) international work experience & opportunities
3) competitive pay
4) good vacation / holdiays

Cons1) reduction in benefits (e.g., health care)
2) lack of succession planning / younger workforce development (the employee has to take the lead on his/her own career)

Advice to Senior ManagementCurrent workforce has a greater mix of older employees, which will eventually be an issue for GM once they elect to retire. Leadership should improve succession planning by developing younger employees and incentivize them to stay with the company. In my years with the company, most of the younger motivated employees tend to leave.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
