I worked at General Motors full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good benefit. GM treats their employee fair. Many holidays, in general you don't have to spend more than 8 hours per day, lay back. There are some interesting projects.

Cons

A big number of people coming from DELL - HP. This leads to many issues, if you know what I mean.

Hiring people not based on their skill set, but on other things. Behavioral interview questions will not help you to find most qualified candidates.

Folks from Detroit are used to deal with contractors, slow to adapt. Getting good business requirements are very difficult.

    I have been working at General Motors as a contractor for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Decent styling on current products

    Cons

    Lack of direction from management. Required training for GM employees is negligible. It sometimes seems like there is a complete lack of interest in doing something new or different and then surprised that the results are the same as always. New technologies are ignored or mistrusted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job with your contract employees. Remove the harsh restrictions on them if they want to move around either internally or to other OEM's. Its a disgrace how you treat them.
