Pros

Work schedule
Work location
Good team
General Motors has options to have a flex work schedule, the commute is reasonable. Team members are usually good to work with

Cons

Micro-management
Unclear expectations
General Motors bad press usually affects morale
Sometimes negative press is cumulative - you feel like you're getting a lot of it at the same time.

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

    Pros

    Fast paced, quick decision making, team atmosphere due to great manager and fellow supervisors

    Cons

    Cut throat mentality, lack work/life balance, old school mentality, slow to adapt, lean in the wrong areas of the company, lazy HR department

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on recruiting and retaining top talent. Ditch the old school mentality and realize that top talent doesn't need you. Better companies are working harding than you to get the best students out there. Great companies are run by great people.
