    Pros

    Great finance rotation program, fast-track program, premier "MBA shop"

    Cons

    Company devaluing TO prominence, "analysis paralysis" mentality

    Advice to Management

    Move program back to NY -- key attraction feature of program. Prevent stagnation both in terms of rotation opportunities as well as career progression. Keep program attractive for MBA's and do not dilute. Compensation needs to be competitive!

    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 Management

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

    Need to work through a multiple layer decision making process, which is typical of most large organizations

    We tend to undersell our technology/products and let the competition take the initiative away from us
