GM - the story of the perfect love hate relationship

Pros

GM can be a great place to work with unique opportunities, creative design problems, wonderful people, and a good balance of work to life. Most mid level management are good people to work for in your functional area. Salary is typically good to better than most, and the benefits are top notch as they have always been.

Cons

The bureaucracy in product development rivals the government. The rigidness to standards and procedures can be overwhelming. The manufacturing side of engineering whines more than a motor with a bad bearing. Most manufacturing/assembly personnel are very unwilling to try anything new or push the envelope. Most of upper level management is out of touch with what is really going on in the new programs. There is little to no opportunity for advancement unless you find it yourself - and even the HR and management will tell you that as well.

Advice to Management

Promote those who deserve it, not those who kiss ass and ask for it.

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

    Pros

    Lots of additional perks to working at General Motors - free trial of cars every three months, bonuses, group outings, like to the auto show, tigers games etc. Definitely improving work-life balance as well by allowing more work from home opportunities. I have a unique perspective as I spent 6.5 years as a contract employee then left for 14 months and now I am direct. I can see changes have been made since I was away.

    Cons

    Still has the issues that all big companies face.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving in the direction you are moving
