    Pros

    Lots 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.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic: 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    HR policies are outdated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 Management

    Wake 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!

    Pros

    Good place to work. Great benefits. Good salary if you have the right skill at the right time...ie..when they really need you

    Cons

    Hierarchical organization where managers at each level feel superior and better than employees at lower levels. Promotion is based more on being LIKED than pure skills and productivity.

    Advice to Management

    find a way to make merit based promotion more about merit and less about personality.
