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

Pros

Very good pay and a company that is definitely headed in the right direction.

Cons

Because we living in the age of downsizing, a lot of my friend left the company before they were ready. Also all new hourly employee will work for a fraction of the compensation that we received years earlier.

    Pros

    good place to learn about the automotive sector business. Large organization - if you are good and lucky it is possible to see more than one location and multiple functional assignments

    Cons

    No loyalty by this company or its senior management. If you work outside of S.E. Michigan (especially overseas) - it can be exciting but will not be rewarded. Living the company values, delivering exceptional performance, being loyal, etc will not overcome the "good old boy/girl" factor. Senior management will pick those that have stayed "well within the lines". Staying too long (longer than 6 to 8 years) will be a negative when looking outside as most of the industry does not think much of the GM culture - especially for executives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not really worthwhile to comment. The new management (post 2009) is arrogant and firmly planted in it's S.E. Michigan towers. The advertised internal candidates for the next CEO practice the same unhealthy behaviors.
