    I have been working at General Motors full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very good place for young engineers to learn and pretty good opportunities for young engineers to move within the company.

    Cons

    Not so good choice for mid career engineers. Very stagnant and with very limited advancement. Company is willing to do more to retain young engineers and does not care much about mid career engineers.

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

    Pros

    Throughout my career, I was provided ample opportunity to learn and develop my special capabilities that will preserve my marketability and strategically position me for change.

    Cons

    The bankruptcy contributed to the current lack of focus on the people. The bankruptcy also allowed for adjustments in retirement benefits that do not align well to the current economic climate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop throwing the babies out with the bathwater! Seek to understand individual capability and promote innovation and creativity through embracing diversity. Act in the best interest of GM overall -- not preserving your station at the expense of your employees.
