Great job, but frustrating at times.

I worked at General Motors

Pros

Plenty of training opportunities for skilled trades, great pay and benefits. Lower and middle level managers are usually pretty decent to work for. Great engineering support.

Cons

Cutbacks have created a ridiculous work load at times. Many of the best managers and engineers have been let go. Future skilled trades hires will still get the same good hourly rate, but with reduced benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leadership needs to study how things were done at the floor level at Saturn. There is an amazing amount of talent out there that you're no longer utilizing!

    I worked at General Motors

    Pros

    Good compensation, company car, relocation, benefits

    Cons

    Used to be a comapny to work for for life. Most of the good people retired when the company went bankrupt. Now you are just a number

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop just looking at dollars and start looking at people. You can never cut your way to profitability and without good people you will never get there

    Low employee morale.
    Decreasing benefits.

    Job Insecurity due to outsourcing model.
    Expected to work long work hours on an ongoing basis.

    Change culture to value employees. Need to streamline/eliminate layers of management needed in order to make a decision. Drive decision making to lower levels.
