Lots of opportunities, good benefits

Senior Manager - IT (Current Employee) Detroit, MI

ProsLots of career opportunities: each business function can be a $30 billion company by itself. Being in IT, you can move around and gain different experience
Good work life balance: reasonable hours
Global opportunities: you get to work on global projects and if lucky, may even get an international assignment
For the 8th level Managers and above, the company car program is awesome.

ConsBureaucratic: things don't move fast enough. The new (CEO and CIO) leadership is trying to change things but it takes a while to change the culture
Some areas can be political
The leadership tolerates low performers -- takes a lot of work to handle these
Could do better to recognize and reward high performers
HR policies are outdated
Leaders think they know everything and don't like to acknowledge that the world outside has better ideas: I don't see them adopting new techniques from conferences etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementWake up and see the world outside: it has changed a lot since GM was in the lead about 30 years ago. Detroit is not the whole world!
