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

I worked at General Motors as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

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

Cons

Terrible 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 ManagementAdvice

Get a clue. Stop rewarding toxic employees.

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Supportive Group
    Pride in Products
    Positive Outlook from management

    Cons

    No major ones so far, still too new to company to judge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As more people move to Urban areas and use more public transportation, it may be a good strategy globally to look into transforming the Identity of GM into a company that specializes in transportation and not just Automotive.

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    It doesn't matter what position you hired in for, when a re-org happens, nobody cares. No job future here in IT. Old GM directors in IT know absolutely nothing about IT and the nobody knows what the new directors know. No strategy comes from the Top. They leave it to the little guys at the bottom to figure everything out. What a mess it is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Soon, many of the new IT hires will be walking out the door unless they see a future at this company and leadership from the top down. Get rid of the dead weight that's been sitting around for years!
