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

Pros

Within IT, large opportunities to grow and learn technology in the area you are interested in. Great employees to work with, large amount of training (1-2 months) offered to everyone, great atmosphere, excellent place for new hires.

Cons

Work/Life balance is pretty bad. There are many initiatives within the company and some individuals are overworked & way too many organization changes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If managers have teams/employees around the globe/nationwide, make sure to look over their workload and offer assistance. Communication is important.

  2. It's a chance to make a significant contribution as the IT division just opened up.

    Pros

    -The workload offers a good work life balance, it's rare that an individual finds him/herself working more then 45 hours a week.

    Cons

    -Since GM itself isn't an IT company you miss out on some benefits that other IT companies offer (ie. flexible working from home policy, a personal company cell phone).
    -Some middle management personnel have no IT background. This makes it difficult to acquire resources that maybe standard across all IT companies as you really have to provide compelling arguments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring middle management personnel who have an IT background.
