    Pros

    Work on state-of-art equipment and the next generation of technology for automotive use.
    I work on the P-2000 hybrid diesel-electric and gas-electric, as well as, the all electric
    Focus due out in 2014, it might out sell Chevy volt and Toyota units combine. The Ford Fusion, according to Consumers report and CAR and DRIVER is a better buy, has better performance and fuel economy that the Toyota Prius.

    Cons

    None, GM is on the right track, but needs to offer Hybrids in their bigger modles, like
    the Buick Enclave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, look out for Ford and Toyota, they have a lot of Electrical and hybrid
    vehicle, going into production.

    Pros

    Excellent benefit package. Location is good.

    Cons

    Telework is only available sporadically. Mid mgmt is struggling with all the changes and is doing their best to keep the fiefdoms. For a company that is talking so much about innovation, it's surprising they hired so many of the existing contractors instead of finding some new blood.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovation does not only apply to the products but it also applies to the culture. By putting "old GM" in charge of the new IT centers, change is stiffled.
