Former Employee - Production in Janesville, WI
Former Employee - Production in Janesville, WI

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

Pros

The pay was great. GM's supervisors/management {for the most part} were good leaders & advocates for their department's workers. Time off on "shut down" a.k.a. "change over"...was a great perk {2 weeks paid time-off over Xmas & New Years}. Overall a good company to work for.

Cons

The hours & monotony suck the life out of you! Mandatory 10-12 hour days doing the same tasks day-in-day-out. Second shift typically ran from 3pm-3am {not a great schedule for parents}, The plant closed down in WI.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue your valued efforts as advocates and accessible leaders of your department's workers, it's great for employee morale.

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits are great!

    Cons

    Not a lot of Career advancement opportunities if you arr good at your job and have a unique skill set..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restricting Employees from posting to other positions in the company only makes them look outside the company. I have been in the same job for 6 years and every year requested to apply for a different position

    I worked at General Motors full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    World leader in auto manufacturing; job opportunities in a wide variety of fields; structured employee evaluation, development, and training; discounts to some great vehicles!

    Cons

    Large company = large bureauocracy; sometimes slow decision-making; can get confined to certain area or position; good, but not great, pay/benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to open up further in terms of allowing employees to change locations/fields--there is a great opportunity there to keep good employees from jumping ship.
