Current Employee - Design Sculptor in Warren, MI

I have been working at General Motors full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Creativity, great people, and challenging work. Good benefits, compensation, and it can be fun at times.

Cons

Behind the times technologically, and a dismal work environment. Old facility, barren grounds, can make it feel like an abandoned campus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Certain environments stifle creativity, others promote it...its nothing new, hire a consultant.

    Working at GM is not for everybody, but it has its charm and many spend their entire career there for a reason.

    - Extremely large pool of opportunities
    - Room for entrepreneurial spirit

    Cons

    - Highly political

    - Your contribution to what is made is only a tiny fraction of the whole thing
    - Knowledge has converged into common opinion. It's difficult to be successful with alternatives

    Former Employee - Area Manager in Washington, DC

    I worked at General Motors full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stability, good benefits, adequate vacation time.

    Cons

    No upside in pay based on performance. If you exceed your targets, you should be compensated accordingly. Since this doesn't happen, it leads to a "just good enough" mentality day to day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your Field employees and your Dealer Retail partners. Get out of Central Office and see what really happens at the Dealer/customer level.
