Great company morale and lively spirit. Still suffers from corporate politics at all levels.

I have been working at General Motors full-time (more than an year)

Pros

GM has decent benefits, good training, and provides more holidays off then most fortune companies. I work with a lot of great fun people. Not a stressful environment; work-life balance is good.

Cons

The compensation is average - they offer use of corporate cars as compensation/benefits.

GM is slow to get anything done. Approval after approval after approval- meetings after meetings after meetings without actually getting somewhere.

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility, challenging work tasks, learn something new everyday, usage of the latest and greatest technology set. Ability to drive a new car four times a year. Great benefits, even better 401K plan and very competitive salary/bonus structure. All the software development training one could ever ask for along with a hefty tuition reimbursement package!

    Cons

    Considering the sheer size of GM causes lags in getting things approved/accomplished. Lack of career direction. Warren Tech Centers looks as though we are in 1950's.

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    8000 in tuition reimbursement. Salaries are on the higher end of the low-midpoint range.

    Cons

    Building is overcrowded. Not enough bathrooms, especially for women. Things are always broken and no one is in a rush to fix them. Trash is barely picked up. Bugs. No cafeteria. Prides itself on being a "start up environment", but does not understand the meaning of the phrase. They think that start up means that they don't have to provide any amenities to their employees. Working from home is frowned upon. If you want employees to be in the office everyday, you must provide normal amenities to them (coffee cups, stirrers, cafeteria, bathroom facilities, clean facilities, enough parking, etc.). Counterparts in Michigan do not listen - they just try to boss people around and blame others for their mistakes, instead of fixing them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly embrace the word innovation. Allow your talented employees to shine and bring new ideas to life in the company. Attrition is high, especially in the Georgia Innovation Center. They are being ran away by too much bureacracy, too many rules, too much focus on the appearance of work and not actually getting the work done, and too much expectation to do the jobs of multiple people without any appreciation or acknowledgement. Listen to the experts that you hired. We are not contractors, therefore, the expectation for us to work like the contractors who were there before without the hourly compensation they were receiving needs to end. There are several other employers in the Atlanta area who pay more and provide a much more satisfying work experience.
