Pros

Flexible hours, come and go as you need. Large company with many areas to work in.

Cons

Can be difficult to get promoted. No clear reasons why some people get promoted and others don't. Seems to be more political than anything. Good performance doesn't get rewarded with promotions, just additional work.

Advice to Management

Be consistent how you promote people. Provide clear direction to employees and honor your word. Employees often go around to check the boxes to get promoted and others get promoted without accomplishing anything. Very frustrating.

    Pros

    Exciting time to be in IT at GM - a lot of opportunity to provide input and shape how IT is done. Career opportunities are great. Benefits and salary are good.

    Cons

    Management doesn't understand yet what it takes to be a workplace of choice for IT workers. No outside training or reimbursement for professional certifications, or professional organization dues, etc. No free coffee at work (bring your own K-Cups), work-from-home policy sporatic, long hours and no comp time policy, no free holiday parties or gifts/prizes - manty perks that experienced IT workers are accustomed to are not provided.

    Advice to Management

    Implement anonymous employee surveys to get honest input. Pay for employee certifications, and courses to maintain certifications. Support employee involvement and leadership in professional organizations.
