    Pros

    GMAM is a great place to work if you fill certain requirements. The firm is very goal oriented, and is the right place for an individual who understands how they fit in with the corporate culture that is dictated by Detroit, and not NY.

    Cons

    GMAM could be a great career for a financial professional. However they must realize that GMAM's only true client is General Motors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very much like all reviews I have read. Management wants open and honest employees, employees want open and honest management

    Pros

    Because it's small, you can get involved and learn about different things. Also, this provides you greater exposure to all management.

    Cons

    No incentives, rewards for good employees. Sometimes unrealistic in what they ask of you - don't always think through their action plans causing greater confusion and issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to start figuring out how to keep the talent you have - Talent is what makes a company, no the other way around.

    Pros

    Some of the reasons why I would encourage other to work at GM include, challenging work, respectful environment, comparable pay and benefits and a good work life balance.

    Cons

    If you are not an analyst, there is really no where else for you to advance in the Finance Division.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers should allow the middle managers more autonomy, and allow them to take credit for a job well done.
