Former Employee - Inventory Control Manager in Spring Hill, TN

I worked at General Motors full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great pay and benefits
Lots of opportunities
Career Advancements

Cons

GM is not as people oriented as they used to be, just a business
Benefits are not as good as they used to be

Advice to ManagementAdvice

GM was broke in 70's, Saturn was an opportunity for GM to improve people, product and process and be competitive with the Japanense auto makers. GM never appreciated the knowledge gained from that experience and never lived up to the values and mission of the corporation

    I worked at General Motors full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits: health insurance and retirement plan. Fascinating work with global reach. Good teamwork, peers willing to work together to solve problems. Top leadership working hard to improve culture.

    Cons

    Politics in some areas were frustrating. Some managers more focused on keeping their jobs instead of advancing the business. Found some leaders arrogant and condescending.

    Former Employee - Supervisor in Pontiac, MI

    I worked at General Motors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A lot of overtime so you make good money but quality of life is terrible

    Cons

    Way too many to list. Favoritism, hostile work environment, management by intimidation toward the hourly and especially the salary workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shape up or you will only have desperate people working for you, which means low quality workers
