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

    Pros

    1.) Good benefits
    2.) Large relocation bonus
    3.) Good pay for Austin, TX.

    Cons

    1.) Outsourced training, which was effectively worthless for my job.
    2.) Minor enhancements team was in disarray, took several months to get a website csv parser to production.
    3.) Many hires, new and old alike did not know what they were doing.
    4.) Higher management may be overly ambitious with their overhaul.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The office culture was fine, people had a very laid back attitude, and were fairly social for each other. But, I feel that they were more interested in talking than doing. Training program should be reconsidered, it is a time consuming waste for anyone that has a slight clue of what they are doing. My case may have been atypical.
