    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    HR policies are outdated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

    I liked the cause work environment and friendly nature working as a salesman.

    Cons

    The dealership I worked for had very deceitful pay practices to the point I had to quit. They did not care and took almost two weeks to pay me my final check. Not only that but they massively shorted me on it. I experienced first hand them deceiving customers and lying about products. I'm a veteran and so in turn a huge American car company buff. I loved gm vehicles... but now I'll never buy or suggest a gm again

    Advice to Management

    When a worker complains about deceit at a dealership to corporate it's your duty to care when your name is on their check. Dealerships directly represent your company and if you have one with issues that were recorded on file by and ex employee you shouldn't tell them it's not your job to care
