    Current Employee - Software Developer in Austin, TX

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

    Pros

    Benefits are good compare to other companies in this category.
    Big investments on technology and buildings

    Cons

    Unfair growth opportunities to a few. The 20 high profile in Austin that HP complained about are an example and the further showing the same by picking their own. Growth limited by who you know and not what you know. You Don't need a technical degree or be a poor developer and you can be a manager or a leader.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There will be no innovation if you hire all the old timers again.
    Break the growth based on connections. Stop making failed developers and PM your leaders.
    Do inventory of how many IT leaders have technical degree or developed technology in recents years or can write code or ever wrote code

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Access to various technologies
    Opportunities across the world
    Fairly capable personnel
    Slightly better paymaster compared to competition
    Discount on GM cars

    Cons

    Too conservative in approach
    Too much emphasis on hierarchy
    Not able to stand up to competition which may harm the employees in the long run
    Morale boosting activities at a minimum

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top performers are leaving. The people being brought in are not capable of replacing the ones who left even after trainings. Take action against the attrition that is taking place.
