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

Pros

Great pay, work hours seem to be flexible. Okay benefits, everyone has access to company cars. Reallocation package is nice.

Cons

Very unstructured, everyone here is new so there really aren't many people to go to for help with BASIC things. I'm fresh out of college I want to be surrounded by people that can help me grown not a ton of other college hires. Too many people here lost and confused. If they offer you a job after one interview be cautious.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Slow down. The waves of people being hired are too large, and the increments are too close together. This results in a ton of lost and confused people.

    Pros

    Lots to learn. Many online and in-class training.
    Compensation is good, at least begin with. ( Good 401k and health plan)
    There are some really good people to work with and learn from.
    Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Office culture is more conservative. Not a big support for innovation.
    Lots of complexity in product design, spent tons of time on tools.
    Political culture.
    Managers tend to hold on to the employees and not let move.
