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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.
