Freedom to do your job, can be difficult to get promoted

Senior Project Engineer (Former Employee)
Milford, MI

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

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

ConsCan 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 Senior ManagementBe 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
