    Current Employee - Senior Manager
    Current Employee - Senior Manager

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

    Pros

    1) 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

    Cons

    1) 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 ManagementAdvice

    Current 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.

    Old building and furniture, but good pay, travel opportunities and some cool assignments if you're lucky.

    Current Employee - Interaction Designer in Detroit, MI
    Current Employee - Interaction Designer in Detroit, MI

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    If you have a good assignment, you get a lot of visibility from your leaders and the public. It pays well and there are opportunities to work long-term assignments overseas.

    Cons

    Things move slow, cutting edge ideas are usually irritating to management and then the engineers and suppliers are typically not talented enough to do a proper execution of the initial design making designers and the company look bad on whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find better engineering talent. Get more 'Rock Stars' instead of paying the lowest bidder in India to do essential software development. Would be wise to set up a UI development center in San Francisco or NYC to attract top-tier talent. It would be worth the money!
