Pros

If you are focused on command and control, your best friend and new boss just relocated from New Delhi, and you care a lot more about politics than quality this is the place for you.

Cons

Politics trump value. Promotion is based
on connections (I.e. Be from India or else). Culture is devolving from bouncing back from bankruptcy to repeating the behaviors that led to bankruptcy. Want to learn from the people that bankrupted the world's largest company? They are all still here, fighting for control and winning.

Advice to Management

GM is an iconic American company and there are talented people who would do anything to restore GM to what it should be. Stop letting politics trump value and refocus on supporting real innovation. Nobody wins if you just become Tata Motors 2.

    Pros

    Great compensation, career growth and movement is encouraged and fostered, professional work environment, innovative, environment that fosters autonomy and personal accountability, tuition assistance (up to 100% with certain programs).

    Cons

    The shear magnitude of the company poses several problems. The approval process to get anything done is typically absurd. Competitive and sometimes opposite of team-oriented atmosphere. Focusing on the customer is far from reality. This cultural shift constantly discussed within the company is simply not happening (or happening quickly enough to make any real difference).

    Advice to Management

    Actually change the new GM.
