I have been working at General Motors full-time for less than a year

Pros

Good Company to work with Excellent Benefits. a lot of things to learn in any area, nice environment.

Cons

Most of the plants are located in the middle of no where, should sacrifice social life in order to work. Interview process is extremely difficult, I think there is no meritocracy in interview process, they hire who they know or referred, not who applied online

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to value the temp agents more and provide them better opportunity to become a GM employee.

    I have been working at General Motors full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    9-5 work culture, 3 weeks vacation plus 16 holidays, car discount, level 8 (sr leads, managers) and above get a new company car every 6 months

    Cons

    Mediocre health benefits, no perks, no coffee, lots of red tape, bureaucracy blocks the simplest requests (getting a VM in a lab can take months!). Many mangers are from AMD, Dell and HP and seem to leave nothing but destruction in their wake.

    What this means is that your manager, or even your director, cannot approve the simplest requests or really authorize any kind of expense no matter how small. Forget about bringing in lunch for the team at crunch time unless you want to pay for it out of your own pocket. Need devices for mobile dev? Good luck with that!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the red tape. Provide managers and directors more budgetary discretion. Policy of waiting 12 to 8+ months to qualify for a raise is ridiculous. The lack of free coffee is like a dead canary in a coal mine! I don't even drink coffee! Behavioral only interviews is a recipe for an organization full of fast talking dimwits.
