    Pros

    Great people to work with. Great benefits like discounted cars. The office space is fairly quiet. Company is continually growing. The ATL office is mainly PM and devolopers

    Cons

    Not easy to move up. If you want to move to a different field you might have to move. Policies are always changing. People don't know what's going on half the time

    Advice to Management

    I understand the change and trying to get things organized. The procedures need to be fixed and management needs to listen to there employees. Certain teams need more people badly.

    Pros

    One of the best companies to work for in the auto industry. Great benefits packages and good plan for career growth!

    Cons

    There will always be some naysayers in every company you go to. Luckily, I'm not one of them.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the low level employees. They deserve the recognition as much as everyone else.

    Challenging Work Great Peers Sense of Community for a company this large Opportunities for advancement

    Anitquated approach to HR - very much still focused on transactional HR salaries are all over the board

    Keep driving change. Lots of potential for this company. Put the right people in the right jobs to drive towards the future rather than keep those that wish to preserve the status quo and look in the rearview mirror.

    Pros

    Big company that has great benefits. Job security. I like the people personally. Lots of fringe benefits like check out a car for a week.

    Cons

    bureaucratic nightmare. 90% of your job is pushing useless paper. Very political. Lots of lazy people due to being not held accountable because of the paperwork nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    You need quality IT people and not quantity of IT people. Quite hiring 2 college hires for each Senior Hire. If you would make your processes efficient you would be more productive and need 2/3rds or the staff you have now. Too many mangers looking out for their own self. Need a management headcount reduction at the mid to lower levels.
