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

    Pros

    the management style is so refreshing, down to earth, respectful, and available if you need help. They leave you alone to do your work, trust their employees to do the job and reward them with freedom to do the job from anywhere.

    Cons

    the change is constant, once you have the hang of what you are doing, it changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take out the low level supervisors....making things worse

    I don't know how they stay in business. They are like the banks, too big to fail.

    I have been working at General Motors full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Make some adequate products, sometimes get it right. Some good job and advancement opportunities. Lots of different areas and people to get involved with. Good paycheck.

    Cons

    Engineering, accounting, manufacturing, testing, development, validation, etc., processes and procedures are inadequate, incomplete, disjointed, ignored, non-existent, out-dated, not communicated adequately,...
    Poor sense of community, comraderie, commitment to company and co-workers, indifference from management, lack of trust and confidence going both ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of this matrix management style that it took 14 years to stumble into, nobody knows who owes what assignment, hand-offs are dropped, much shuffling, much information and time is lost, many errors are made on changing assumptions and talent.
