A nightmare of a job. Like reliving the worst of high school.

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Warren, MI

I worked at General Motors as a contractor for less than a year

ProsThe paycheck. There is literally nothing else positive about working there.

ConsTerrible coworkers. No training (they had the person sitting next to me "train" me. I found out months afterward that she got passed over for my job and was intentionally telling me the wrong info in an effort to "look like the hero" and my bosses were aware of and condoned it.) Worked long hours, but not paid overtime (got to "bank" my hours, but never take them.) The level of bureaucracy is staggering and it's a miracle anything gets done. Everyone hates their job and each other. Everyone is constantly gossiping and trying to stab others in the back. It is like the worst, most cliquey high school experience you could imagine. There is no amount of money you could pay me to go back to that toxic work environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a clue. Stop rewarding toxic employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
